Discover how easy it is to make your own natural DIY Roll-On Herbal Deodrant with all-natural ingredients you probably already have at home.
Why You Will Love This Recipe
I've tried dozens of different deodorants and antiperspirants over the years, including versions I've made myself. Most of them have been a huge disappointment.
Which is such a shame. Thankfully, I've been testing and perfecting this recipe for weeks and I'm thrilled to have arrived at a final product.
Don't be alarmed by the amount of time I invested, though, because this herbal roll-on deodorant is actually quite simple to make. Let me show you how I did it.
Why Use a Natural Deodorant?
Aluminum, which is used in conventional antiperspirants as the main active ingredient, is linked to breast cancer.
I'm also wary of the concept of antiperspirant in general. If you think about it, it makes a lot of sense that blocking sweat glands could lead to health issues. Sweating is one of the ways our bodies get rid of toxins, and we inhibit that with antiperspirants.
I use this 1-ounce glass bottle - they are a bit smaller than standard deodorant containers, but it's very nice to use and GREAT for throwing in my purse.
I recommend using glass since essential oils can break down plastic over time. You can also reuse glass over and over many more times, anyway.
You could just as easily store this in a spray bottle, too! You can make larger batches at a time, I wouldn't.
The rollerball needs to be cleaned out every so often and this is a good amount of product/time to wait between cleanings.
How To Use
Shake well and apply to underarms. Toss it in your bag to use later. I get around 6-7 hours of protection from this recipe on a normal day.
