Herbal deodorant sprays are especially good for daily use.
Every healthy human produces approximately 1-2 pints of sweat a day, which is an odorless liquid. Chemically based commercial products have been known to contain products that block the sweat glands and inhibit their natural temperature regulation. The decomposition of bacteria on the skin form substances with odor. Our homemade herbal deodorant recipes, do not contain products that block the sweat glands however they contain products that prevent odor from forming. Zinc – oxide is an odour-free, natural raw material, combined with rose geranium which kills the bacteria that make our perspiration smell unpleasant. It doesn’t close the pores or stop the natural process of perspiration.

Ingredients for this Recipe and their Benefits:
witch-hazel extract to inhibit sweating: Witch-hazel extract, readily available in drug and grocery stores, is derived from the plant’s bark, twigs and leaves. True witch hazel extract has been double distilled, and contains 86% witch hazel extract and only 14% alcohol. This makes it more soothing than the version found in your local store, and lacks the alcohol sting and scent. It inhibits inflammation, absorbs oil and is mildly astringent. With regular use it constricts skin pores and thus reduces excessive sweat formation. If you shave your underarms, apply witch hazel water just after shaving; it eliminates small pimples and reddening.
zinc-oxide powder to neutralize odor: Zinc-oxide powder is obtained from the mineral zincite. The powder has a slightly greasy consistency and will make your homemade deodorant appear milky. It has excellent properties for neutralizing body odor, will not irritate the skin and is slightly antiseptic and astringent. Since it is not completely water soluble, the powder tends to separate from liquids over time. Make sure to shake the deodorant before use.
Aloe Vera Juice to cool and moisturize: Aloe-vera juice gives your homemade deodorant a mildly cooling effect, especially pleasant and refreshing at hot times of year. Including the juice in your deodorant means you also benefit from aloe-vera’s remarkable healing and moisturizing properties. These ensure that the skin is adequately conditioned and that any type of irritation or itchy allergic reaction is quickly and easily alleviated.
