There’s no space for conventional personal care products on your bathroom counter. Next to your natural toothpaste and cruelty-free beauty essentials, you’ll find a jar of this homemade deodorant. Unlike conventional items that often contain toxic and potentially harmful ingredients, this deodorant is made with natural items you know and trust. Bentonite clay absorbs odor and works to prevent sweating, while lavender essential oil offers a soft, calming aroma to keep you smelling scent-sationally all day long.
