The Best Essential Oils For Deodorant
Claire Miles - September 21, 2019

Making homemade deodorant is way easier than it may seem to be. And adding some essential oils to your next batch will definitely have you feeling fresh and clean and healthy. The best essential oils for deodorants have beneficial properties beyond just smelling good. There are some essential oils that keep bacteria far far away. It might not be something we think about on a daily basis, but body odor is no laughing matter. Bacteria mixes with sweat and causes body odor which is so not what we’re aiming for. That’s why you’ll want to choose essential oil with antibacterial properties to prevent the development of bacteria.

 

Essential oils boast plenty of benefits for the skin, which include anti-inflammatory effects to alleviate irritation or some treat hyperpigmentation in underarms. Some essential oils have super strong scents we all can immediately identify, while others have very light scents. The cool thing about essential oils is that they can be blended together to create a fragrance that best suits your personal preference and skin-care needs.

 

Make sure to buy essential oils that aren’t diluted with a carrier oil. So look for bottles with 100% of the oil you want. You can later dilute it yourself with a carrier oil like almond or coconut oil. Choose essential oils that are appropriate for topic use so as not to irritate your skin. It’s a good idea to check with your doctor or dermatologist before adding essential oils to your skin-care routine.
