Are you still using Commercial Deodorants filled with toxic ingredients? Or are you not able to find a good one with all natural ingredients with your choice of fragrance? I hear ya’! I ditched Commercial Deodorants and Perfumes years back when I learnt that sweet smell was not as sweet as it seemed to be. I was literally loading my body with toxic ingredients which in the long run would only deteriorate my health and I was not ready for such a huge sacrifice. I am sure no one would like to load their body with the toxic Aluminum, Parabens and other nasty chemicals and additives.
I will post a DIY Perfume recipe sometime soon but today I am sharing a simple DIY Deodorant Recipe which you can make at home.
