The aluminum in deodorant is rumored to cause a range of diseases from Alzheimer’s to breast cancer. In addition, heavy deodorant and anti-perspirant users can spend a tidy sum of money on these products. So instead, try rubbing alcohol to freshen your armpits. Bacteria causes the odor that we associate with armpits. Alcohol is an anti-bacterial agent and kills the odor-causing bacteria while having a drying effect, which helps prevent excessive sweating.
Put up to 15 drops of your favorite essential oil (or combination of oils if you want a custom scent) in the spray bottle.
Fill the bottle with rubbing alcohol.
After you shower or bathe, dry yourself completely. Spray the alcohol mixture under your arms. It will be very wet. However, alcohol doesn’t harm or stain clothing, so you can either let yourself dry and then get dressed or put your clothes on immediately. Alcohol dries so quickly that either option will be fine.
In the mornings, when you plan to be especially active, or whenever you are extra sweaty, simply reapply.
