Natural Deodorant

Deodorant is a product that everyone needs. Many do not realize there are harmful chemicals in most over the counter deodorant. I have been searching for a natural deodorant that actually works for many years now. I have tried lots of different products with varying results. For a long time I used the “Natural Rock” (roll-on or crystal) combined with another natural roll-on. That did seem to work, but I had to use both of them. Either one by itself didn’t do the trick, if you know what I mean. But now I believe I have found a simpler solution. Magnesium oil. Have you ever heard of it? It’s magnesium chloride flakes mixed with water. Lots of folks use it for topical pain relief. There’s a great article on how to make it Here. Turns out the stuff is also wonderful for controlling unpleasant body odor. Now, it won’t act as an anti-perspirant. I have not found anything natural that will do that. I’m over it. I use Magnesium Oil as my deodorant. It’s simple, effective, and completely benign if not outright beneficial to put this stuff on your body.
