DIY Beauty: Homemade Deodorant

homemade deodorant

Conventional deodorants may do the trick, but they’re also chock full of harmful ingredients. So, what’s an eco-fashionista to do? You’ve got a couple of options:

  1. Buy natural deodorant instead.
  2. Make your own!

If you’re not DIY inclined, option 1 may work for you. Just beware: some of those natural deodorants aren’t as natural as they seem. The word “natural” is not regulated in any way, so companies can slap it on, say, a deodorant that contains a harmful pollutant.

Would you rather skip the tedious label-reading? Then your best bet is to whip up your very own batch of homemade deodorant! You can tweak the formula to make it smell just how you want, and you have total control over the ingredients. Pretty awesome, right?

This video from Threadbanger shows you how to create homemade deodorant out of truly natural ingredients:
