For the last 6 six years or so I've been using baking soda for deodorant. It works for me but I wanted to try something new that was less messy and easier to apply. I found a recipe that sounded good and made it yesterday morning.
The consistency is similar to very thick lotion. I was concerned that it would stay moist and not dry once I applied it but that was not the case.
I know it's not that pleasing to eye but it actually worked very well! Yesterday was a long day and if the deodorant was going to fail me it would have yesterday. The recipe I used can be found here. I used about 8 drops lavender oil and 1 drop eucalyptus / tea tree oil blend. It smells nice and overall I am very pleased with the results.
Do you have any favorite natural recipes you use?
