DIY natural deodorant

This is a simple, DIY natural deodorant recipe. It is free of toxic chemicals such as aluminum and parabens, which have shown detrimental health effects.

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.”
