Traditional (chemical) deodorants and anti-perspirants work by killing off the bacteria in your armpit, using Aluminium to block sweat glands, and adding perfume. But as the bacteria is indiscriminately killed, the underarm microbiome is disturbed and opportunistic bacteria can take hold, or even worse, the populations of the very worst offenders for creating body odour can sky-rocket (because there is less competition), making the problem even worse. What if there was a way to naturally control, rather than indiscriminately kill the bacteria? It turns out there is : by applying highly resistant beneficial bacteria such as lactobacillus and bifidobacteria to the skin, they crowd out the other, unpleasant smell-creating bacteria, limiting their proliferation, and leaving you smelling fresh.
This recipe for a homemade probiotic spray deodorant makes enough to fill a 100ml bottle. Use a multi-strain probiotic that is stable at room temperature.
Avoid plastic and reuse a spray glass bottle. Weleda spray deodorants come in the perfect glass spray bottles for this purpose. Buy one and reuse for ever.
Also, one might fear the sugar might make the deodorant sticky, absolutely not, 100ml of water is enough dilution, plus, the probiotics actually do eat the sugar, so ultimately there is actually hardly any sugar left.
