Ditching deodorant can be a very overwhelming and daunting task that many of us are just not ready to do. Often times deodorants that contain safe ingredients just don’t do the job. I get it. The thing is, do you really want to block one of your most powerful detox pathways? Let’s make a super simple DIY Spray Deodorant that will freshen your pits, kill bacteria and help you ditch one of the most toxic products today!
I bet you didn’t know that making your own deodorant will take only 2 minutes. My DIY Spray Deodorant with Frankincense is so simple it literally takes minutes to make and dare I say, it works better then any natural, solid deodorant you might DIY or try!
So I went to the gym today. I haven’t been in years-I usually do Peak 8 on my treadmill at home so going somewhere was a BIG change. It dawned on me before I went that I was going to have to do something about my outrageous B.O. since I quit deodorant a while ago. Initially, I made my own deodorant but ran out and just never made more. I’m probably sounding like a crunchy hippy about now, really I’m not, just my pits are.
Frankincense and Anti Cancer Properties
This morning I recalled a post on one of my favorite blogs, Camp Wander. She made a DIY spray deodorant using just witch hazel and essential oils. I thought I’d try it and headed off to the gym. To my surprise, I could still smell the essential oils and the body odor was at a bare minimum after my workout. Not only was this so simple to make, there is so much positive research showing that Frankincense essential oil has anti cancerous properties.
These days women are getting breast cancer by the handfuls. Aluminum is a common ingredients in deodorants and has been found to accumulate in the breast tissue. It sure makes sense to knock off the aluminum filled commercial deodorants, make your own and add Frankincense to it, right?

Many people are taken aback at how bad they actually stink when they stop blocking their lymph nodes under their arm. You must remember that sweating is your skin’s way of detoxing the body and it is so incredibly important to not hinder our body from detoxing. You might look into using a Pit Detox Mask which will help pull toxins and decrease the stink. Saunas are also a fantastic way to encourage extra sweating for more detox.
This DIY spray deodorant is so easy. You don’t have much to lose! Try it out, if it doesn’t work, you can use it as a room or pillow spray or use it as a multi purpose gym spray!!!
