What could beat the refreshing and elegant aroma of lavender, and the cleansing neutralizing agent that is vinegar. These two are a classic combo. All it takes is around 15 drops of lavender essential oil, half a cup of apple cider vinegar, a single sprig of lavender and a cup of water. Stir everything together in a clean container and let it sit for roughly ten hours before it’s ready for use.

2. Grapefruit

  1. These home made deodorants sound wonderful. However, those who have sensitive skin probably will not be able to use them as most of these require baking soda, which leaves horrible rashes to the skin. Also the part “straining and rinsing the water”….what does that even mean? That makes no sense to me. Sorry…..no. I will be passing on these DIY deodorants.

  2. I really want to try the citrus and orange peel one, however, I too, wanna know how to “rinse the water”.

  3. Pretty sure they meant “strain” the citrus peels, not rinse! I mix cornstarch with baking soda – 2 parts cornstarch to 1 part baking soda. Too much baking soda does irritate my skin.
