      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.

      Does this work with yellow jackets? I live in the country too, and the yellow jackets like to play chicken with your face. Not fun. Although, I would have to dial soap my entire house... :(
