Aluminium Free Deodorant

Why using organic homemade deodorant?

Commercial deodorant fill with a huge amount of chemical substances. These substances, like aluminium, parabens and others, are harmful to the human body. It may cause diseases like Alzheimer and breast cancer.

So, I decided to stay safe away from these things and make my own deodorant. The natural deodorant will not stop you from sweating, but it will control the sweating odor.
