I read a lot about the dangers of aluminum in our deodorants. If you are interested I can post an article on this topic. Well, apparently you need it to clot your glands and  stop sweating. So, which other possibilities do we have, I asked…
I was very skeptical when I tried this recipe…I mean who makes their own deodorant? Weirdoes!! Well, I must admit I am absolutely thrilled!! This stuff is really good!! Cheap, easy to make, smells good and kept me odorless for 18 hours up to now!! This gets 5 stars from me!!! One more step towards being self-sustained and without toxic chemicals (like aluminum) in my cosmetics!!


Grated lemon peel of ½ fresh lemon
1 Tsp lemon juice
50 ml snaps (Korn, 38%), if you can not tolerate alcohol on your skin just take distilled water instead
50 ml distilled water
1 Tsp baking soda (Natron)

Mix lemon peel, juice, snaps and water and let sit for a minimum of 1 hour (1 let it stand overnight). Strain into a spray bottle and add baking soda. Shake until dissolved.
