Deodorants are great especially if you workout a lot or reside in humid weather. Also if you sweat a lot naturally, you probably also suffer from body odor. Deodorants are great and all but if they contain alcohol, it can irritate your sensitive armpits in a long run and make them darker in most cases. Also, commercial deodorants contain other unwanted toxic ingredients as well. If you are looking out for a natural deodorant recipe that is chemical and baking soda-free, refer below-
