Body odor isn’t exactly a topic everyone wants to talk about; but more likely than not, it is something we’ve all experienced at one point or another. Yes, store-bought deodorants work just fine, but they aren’t the healthiest solution. If you’d rather go for an all-natural, safer, and more environmentally friendly alternative, try making your own deodorant at home. We’ll teach you how to make natural deodorant with these recipes!

Make sure you check out the How to Make Natural Deodorant Infographic below the recipes!
