how to make natural deodorant sprays

If you don’t like the idea of a cream deodorant, there are endless variations for making sprays with added essential oils for their amazing aromas. These recipes are so ridiculously easy and you probably already have most of the ingredients in your pantry. The only other thing you may need is a small spray bottle (preferably glass).

Use whatever essential oils you like but the citrusy ones seem to work very well, like lemon, orange blossom and grapefruit. A combination of grapefruit and lavender is heavenly. Melaleuca is another great option because, like lavender, it is antibacterial. If you like the smell, go ahead and put that in. Tea tree has legendary antimicrobial properties. Lemongrass is wonderful, especially in summer, as is clary sage which is crisp and refreshing (but don’t use it if you are pregnant).
