If you decide to live a zero-waste lifestyle, you can never find a free-packaged deodorant from stores. With that, the only option available to you is to either create your own deodorant or look for free-packaged Potassium Alum (Tawas) near you. For me, I obviously chose the first alternative because Tawas has never worked for me in the past.
When I first decided to start my Zero-waste Journey, the first product that I created and used is my homemade deodorant. As I was researching for alternatives for store-bought deodorants, I learned that store-bought deodorants contain Aluminum that clogs the armpit pores. Because of this, our armpit cannot release the sweat, in which is the natural way of the armpit’s detoxification. This may cause Cancer and other illnesses. Moreover, the ingredients of homemade deodorants are very easy to find and these deodorants are also very effective in taking stinkiness away!
Please take note that this recipe is not mine. I got this from a Youtuber named Ashley. (Thank you Ashley!) You can check out her DIY deodorant video here.
Without further adieu, let’s start mixing now!
