✿Handmade Deodorant

A few weeks ago, I made deodorant the first time using alum and essential oil.
(Alum is something that used in picking, making bread or dying fabric etc...)

It was very easy to make.
A.  Mix 5g alum and 150ml purified water and wait until dissolved. 
B.  Mix 5ml vegetable glycerin and 3 drops of lemon grass essential oil and one drop of peppermint essential oil.
C.  Mix A and B.
that's it...
I am using the half amount in a spray grass bottle and the other half in refrigerator to keep it fresh.

I've been making natural and organic room spray, facial toner and face cream since last summer.  I love using and making my own environmentally friendly items.
