Deodorant Alternatives

Deodorant Alternatives 

By Carly Turner 

 

Have you ever tried natural treatments for your armpit odors?

Sometimes it takes time for your body to adjust. Many have found that they prefer natural methods after a month or two of staying away from the ‘Mitchum’, ‘Axe’, and otherwise. 

There are many different essential oils that one can benefit from using in their underarms.

Essential Oils as Deodorant 

 

Good for Underarms when Well-Diluted: 

  • Rosemary 
  • Frankincense
  • Thyme 
  • Lavender 
  • Sandalwood
  • Cypress 
  • Tangerine 
  • Myrrh
  • Lemongrass 
  • Ylang Ylang   
  • Lemon  
  • Geranium  

Tip: Adding a little bit of alcohol into your mixes, sprays, and dilutions can keep it shelf-stable for longer.  

 

Thai Deodorant Stone

Another option to deodorize armpits is a Thai deodorant stone or ‘crystal’ roll-on. It is a pure mineral that helps keep the underarms fresh. It is applied after a bath or shower while the body is still damp, or wet the stone or armpit before applying. It also works on feet. It is highly recommended for sensitive skinned people or those who are looking for hypoallergenic alternatives. The mineral salts help kill odor-causing bacteria and do not stain clothing. One stone has been said to last one person up to a year of use! 

 

Have a odor-free summer!

The summer heat is hot. Remember to drink quite a bit of filtered water and to stay out of the direct sun. If water alone doesn’t seem to be cooling you off then you can make your own spray to spray on your face and skin. 

Oils Great For Diluting in Water To Spritz for a Cooling Spray: 

  • Eucalyptus
  • Peppermint
  • Rosemary 
  • Lemon 
  • Lavender 
  • Juniper
  • Tea Tree
  • Chamomile 
  • Clove
  • Rose
  • Purify Synergy
  • Orange 
  • Lime
  • Rose  
  • Thyme 
  • Clary Sage
  • Bergamot
  • Patchouli 

Tip: Adding a bit of witch hazel or aloe vera juice or gel to your spray can help with sun burns as well. The witch hazel can also help keep the spray shelf-stable, longer.
