You will need:
1 old, empty roll on ‘ball’ deodorant, opened up, washed out and dried
40g Bicarbonate of Soda
20 drops of essential oils, I chose 10 drops of Tea tree oil and 10 drops of Lavender oil
Small bowl and a something to mix with, I used and old teaspoon.
To make it:
Pop the 40g of bicarb into a bowl and add the oil. Mix well – initially it goes a bit clumpy but keep mixing and soon it’ll be a sand consistency.
Add the mix to the opened up roll on deodorant case and then snap the top back on it.
Use at will!
Please note: Bicarb may not suit very sensitive skins for prolonged use
