    MYO Deodorant

    To make 8fl oz/225ml
    4 teaspoons alum
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    8 floz/225ml rubbing alcohol
    Combine all ingredients in a spray bottle, shake well till dissolved. Use as you would any spray deodorant.


    Other Ideas:

    Baking Soda: Baking soda works wonders because it neutralizes the odor of sweat. Fill a small shaker container and just sprinkle a light covering of baking soda onto a damp washcloth. Pat on. Donít rinse. For a scent you could add Cedar or Sage Essential oils
    for men or Lavender or Eucalyptus for women.

    Basic Deodorant Powder:

    Combine the following in a jar,
    1/2 cup baking soda
    1/2 cup cornstarch
    a few drops essential oils such as lavender (Cedar or Sage -for men). To use: apply with dry washcloth & dust on or use a sprinkle top on your jar and apply.

    Basic Liquid Deodorant:

    1/4 cup witch hazel extract
    1/4 cup aloe vera gel
    1/4 cup water
    1 teaspoon vegetable glycerin
    a few drops antibacterial Essential oils (lavender, Eucalyptus).
    Combine all in a spray bottle, shake well. Will keep for almost ever..

      These sound great! We use Milk of Magnesia in a spray bottle. Yes, it does leave white marks if we aren't careful putting on our shorts, but I have never experienced this level of lack of body odor. It is truly amazing! No mixing required, either.
