Stinky armpits and smelly feet are uncomfortable and embarrassing.
The everyday solution is to use a commercial product to control odor.
But what if you want to steer clear of chemicals?
Then you need the best essential oils for deodorant.
How do you use essential oils for deodorant?
You have options when it comes to using essential oils to reduce odor.
It’s the kind of flexibility you might not have when shopping for deodorant at the store.
The stink comes from bacteria on your skin (1).
Therefore, you need oils that are naturally antibacterial.
The wide variety means that you can customize how your deodorant smells according to your preference.
Then, you can blend them with other oils that are good for the skin.
Later in the article, I’ll provide a recipe for making DIY deodorant with essential oils.
If you want to keep it simple, you can simply choose one oil, dilute it with a carrier oil, and massage it into your underarms or your feet.
Of course, you have to understand that the essential oils won’t stop you from sweating. And you’ll probably have to renew them throughout the day (4).
