Hello..
it is a fact that in present time most of the deodorant contain harsh chemical compounds,which can seriously harm your body skin..So that i am looking for selfmade natural organic deodorant that can help to keep me fresh all day long.

And i am also interested in this cause many different people have there own kind of home making technique and review are quite good then they expected..

I am not very used to it... but i want to try it once..so what is better for this.

I don't know how long it lasts but when I need to take a trip to town sometimes I grab any aromatic leaf around (mints, sweetgum, patchouli, etc.) and rub it over myself.....

Just use baby diaper rash/ zinc oxide cream. Get the stuff without cod liver oil. Apply to armpits and vigorously wipe away. Now you won't stink for around two weeks, sans aluminum.

None. I gave it up years ago and I have never had a complaint. I think i stuck bad for a while after quitting the use of deodorant but then things balanced out and now... I just smell like a person I guess. Not bad and not like a medicine cabinet full of mystery smells.

I use bicarbonate of soda.I haven't quite figured out what to use it with yet, but mint sounds good, also, any lovely smelling herbies!

bicarbonate of soda I use for my teeth, and hair too, great stuff as a natural cleaner, my hair and skin are silky smooth, and don't need conditioning after either!
