This zero-waste deodorant is honestly life-changing, I kid you not. No more body odour and best of all, no aerosols, packaging or nasty chemicals. It costs practically nothing to make and can be whipped up in 2 minutes flat. It really is that amazing.
Tried and tested in the Australian summer, it’s a winner and while you will still perspire, you will not smell. I learned the recipe when I attended the Earth Carers course and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Time to make: 2 mins

* to use as a roll-on, just put the paste into a silicone mould and refrigerate for an hour or two. Remove from the mould and store the deo block in a tub/jar in the fridge.
