Tips cara membuat deodarant sendiri

Why choose a natural deodorant over an antiperspirant?
Most people think that antiperspirants and deodorants are the same thing, but they aren’t. Antiperspirants work by clogging, closing, or blocking the pores with powerful astringents such as aluminum salts so that they can’t release sweat. (Note that aluminum can accumulate in the brain.) Deodorants work by neutralizing the smell of the sweat and by antiseptic action against bacteria. Deodorants are preferable because they don’t interfere with sweating, a natural cooling process.

You Can Make Your Own!
Annie Berthold-Bond, author of "Clean and Green", "Better Basics for the Home", and "The Green Kitchen Handbook" gives some good suggestions for making your own deodorants. You can also do a simple search on the internet and find a plethora of websites with homemade deodorant recipes.

The Best Time to Apply Deodorant
I read somewhere that 20% of all Americans take their bath or showers in the evening. They also say that the best time to apply deodorant is right after a bath or shower, while the armpits are still damp. The bacteria fighting ingredients are activated by moisture (like when we sweat), so you will get a jump start on your day if you are taking showers in the mornings instead of in the evenings.
Baking soda works wonders because it neutralizes the odor of sweat. Just sprinkle a light covering of baking soda onto a damp washcloth. Pat on. Don’t rinse.
This tip—just using baking soda—has saved me on many occasion, especially when traveling.
