    • Antipersperant Spray

      Make your own Antiperspirant Spray! This simple recipe is only 3 ingredients, a great way to avoid nasty, pore clogging chemicals.

      An important note about Antiperspirants- while they are okay for occasional use it is not considered healthy to use them Daily as anything that blocks the bodies ability to perspire is not particularly healthy! This is a simple recipe to make and use for those "little black dress" occasions where you don't want them to "see you sweat"! For daily use we recommend our "NO " Deodorant.

      This is a pretty simple recipe, all you need is:

      1 cup water
      1 1/2 tsp cosmetic grade alum powder
      1/4 cup vodka


      Mix all ingredients and stir well until the alum is dissolved. Pour into a spray bottle or clean container. To use, spray on the body, or apply using cotton pads

      Alum can be found in the seasoning/spice section of any major grocery store, or it can be purchased online at places such as Amazon. Wondering-- What is Alum? Check out this link for more info.

      If you prefer a Stick deodorant, check out this tried and true recipe: NO "" Deodorant

        I made this recipe and like it. Works great, my personal summer's have put it to the test. I am anxious to decide on the odor portion, as yet NO problem.

        I wonder if there is something besides vodka that would be effective?

        I would think plain alcohol would be okay. The deodorant recipe calls for that. Worth a try I suppose.

        Interesting! I have been looking for this. My Grandma used alum for gum sores or tooth ache .

        Alum powder is the precise chemical you're SUPPOSED to be avoiding! There is a great deal of evidence that it causes breast cancer when applied to the armpit. I was so excited to see this post, thinking that it was a healthy, natural option.
