Natural Roll On Deodorant

Anti-perspirants are designed to block sweat from coming out of the body. We believe this to be unhealthy as the body is designed to sweat and it is part of a healthy elimination process. However, we do understand that sometimes people need a deodorant. This does not stop the body from sweating but it does slow down the bacterial breakdown of the sweat which is what eventually causes the bad smell.

We prefer to use Deocrystal Stone Powder (INCI Name: Potassium Alum). This is a natural deodorant that has a molecular size that is too large to be absorbed into the skin. It stays on the surface where it inhibits bacterial growth, thus giving a deodorant effect.

Method:
  • Weigh the water and pour into a bowl. Weigh the Konjac Glucomannan powder and sprinkle over the water to cover the surface then whisk vigorously for a few seconds only. This is meant to be a very thin gel. If you whisk too long, you will get a thick gel that is no use for this product.
  • Crush the Deocrystal Stone Powder into the gel until it is dissolved.
  • Cool down to below 40°C then stir in the remaining ingredients, don't whisk. Bottle into a roll on bottle and label.
  • The essential oils should be chosen for their deodorant qualities such as Lavender, Patchouli, Cypress and Ylang Ylang.
