Looking for a super simple natural deodorant recipe?
We will guide you through a recipe to make an effective and natural deodorant, all 100% homemade!
So how do you make your own deodorant?
You can use lemon or lime as deodorant! It’s 100% natural and incredibly effective 😉 .
Lemon juice contains citric acid, which kills bacteria and odor. It will easily last for 12h to 24h.
You can reuse the same lemon for an entire week, and it will keep odors away!
It’s 100% natural
Oh and by the way, this 100% natural alternative will help you avoid packaging waste, plastic waste and unwanted chemicals in your body!
But don’t be fooled!
Remember, lemon and lime juice is a great deodorant, but not an antiperspirant. It doesn’t block perspiration, but it does eliminate bad odors.
If you’re looking to protect your skin, avoid antiperspirants because they contain ingredients like aluminum, which block the pores of our skin to prevent us from sweating. Sweating is one of our body’s main functions to flush toxins from our system.
Other harmful ingredients that can be found in antiperspirants and some deodorants are triclosan, propylene glycol, parabens or synthetic fragrances.
Switch to a natural deodorant, there are many brands, especially for very sensitive skin! But an easy solution is to simply rub a lemon or a lime in your armitage!
Be careful if you have just shaved
If you have just shaved or have a small cut in your armpit, it will sting! Also, if you plan to spend the day in the sun, be sure not to put lemon juice on your skin, as it will leave marks and welts.
Don’t try it with other citrus fruits like oranges, they contain more sugar and will stick.
