Frequently Asked Questions

These might be the questions on the tip of your tongue. So, let us answer a few questions surrounding this topic, so you can understand more about DIY spray deodorants.

Does Homemade Natural Deodorant Work?

While the results will be different from traditional or commercial deodorants, they do not help with the basic bad body odor thing.

Natural deodorant, for example, is more likely to cover up a smell as opposed to sweat, which is actually a good thing and many think that this is healthier.

If you are switching from a commercial deodorant to a natural one, it may take a few weeks or a few days for the ecosystem in your underarms to rebalance.

But, when it does, the natural deodorant and your body will work to minimize the mad odors that occur when things get hot.

How Do I Prepare My Armpits For Natural Deodorant?

The truth of it is that you will sweat when you switch, this is normal and not something you should be afraid of.

You can prepare by using an underarm mask, exfoliating the skin under your arms, wear light clothing, use apple cider vinegar and of course, you must be patient.

As you no longer are the commercial deodorant, the aluminum in your pores will come out on its own, and eventually, you will have fresh and free pores that are no longer clogged.

When you start going down the rabbit hole of commercial deodorants and their ingredients and learning how bad they are for you, it will not be long before you are making your own spray deodorant.
