Whether you're trying to avoid pit stains or simply want to make a switch to something natural and homemade, this recipe is safe, effective and good to use! The formula includes clary sage essential oil for its antibacterial properties. It helps to kill smelly bacteria and it also has a pleasant scent that makes it a great addition to this spray deodorant. As an added bonus, clary sage oil can help you feel less stressed and more centered. Here's what you need to do:
• 1/2 cup witch hazel
• 1/4 cup aloe vera gel
• 1/4 tsp baking soda
• 10 drops clary sage essential oil*
*Note: Clary sage essential oil is fine for most people, but it should not be used during pregnancy. Feel free to substitute in another oil with odor-banishing properties, like melaleuca, lavender, or rosemary oil.
1. Add the witch hazel, aloe vera, baking soda and essential oils to a small spray bottle, shaking well to combine.
2. To use your homemade spray deodorant, shake the bottle well before each use and spray on the underarms, letting them dry for a few seconds before getting dressed.
