This DIY lemon and baking soda deodorant is simple to make and synthetic-free.
It is inexpensive and will not introduce harmful chemicals in your body.

According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, “your antiperspirant probably contains aluminum, and that aluminum may be absorbed into your breast tissue where it could potentially increase your risk of breast cancer or other health problems.”
This DIY lemon and baking soda deodorant contain only 2 ingredients:
1. Lemon helps kill odor-causing bacteria.
2. The baking soda helps neutralize odor-causing acids.
What you need:
Sprinkle 1/2 tsp of baking soda onto 1 slice of lemon
It will fizz a little.
Wait a few seconds, and then apply on armpits.
Repeat every morning after showering for a natural, chemical free daily deodorant
DO NOT USE AFTER SHAVING.
Try it, your body and wallet will thank you!
If this does not work for you, we recommend Herbalix Restorative deodorants.
Note: If you have been using a commercial deodorant or antiperspirant, check the label to see if it contains any type of aluminum, petroleum or propylene glycol. It can lead to the buildup of chemicals under your arms.
Please avoid Aluminum Chlorohydrate or Aluminum Zirconium who close pores to prevent sweat, can shrink sweat glands and promote breast cancer.
