No DIY needed here! Just go to the store or farmers market and buy some organic LEMONS. Or, maybe you have a lemon tree already growing in your back yard, in that case, they’re free for you!
Yes, I am serious, the BEST Natural Deodorant Ever is a LEMON.
I’ve tried pretty much all of the natural deodorants you see in natural health food stores. Then I tried making my own homemade deodorants … and still, they just didn’t cut it. Then a tried plain ole’ baking soda for a while, and it was okay, but it still didn’t quite do the trick + I didn’t care for the feeling of it.
Then came the LEMON! I have been using lemon for many years now and I have to say it is awesome!
1. Wash a lemon.
2. Cut lemon in half.
3. Squeeze a small amount of juice into your hand.
4. Rub onto armpits.
If it’s extra hot out during summer months or you find yourself a little extra sweaty … then you might need to wash your armpits once during the day and then reapply the lemon.
You can also reapply the lemon during the day even if you can’t wash your armpits first.
WARNING: If you shave your armpits, you might want to wait at least 10 minutes before applying the lemon juice or it WILL sting, but it will go away if you can’t wait.
Storage: Store the cut lemon in the refrigerator for longer shelf life.
