DIY Lavender Deodorant

DIY Lavender Deodorant is an effective alternative to the standard, potentially toxic chemical-filled deodorants.

However, when I switched from chemical-filled deodorants to clean deodorants, it wasn’t as easy as you would think?

I had tried so many natural deodorants with no luck. Some gave me an itchy rash, and others, well didn’t work for me and I still had an unpleasant stink! Ugg 🙁

So, I did some research on DIY deodorants and made a few that worked. Yippee!!! I’m so happy I decided to make my own!

Are you tired of stinking too and want a safe deodorant? If so, give this DIY Lavender Deodorant a try!
