Herbal Deodorant Recipe

Natural odor-fighting herbs, such as thyme (Thymus vulgaris), sage (Salvia officinalis), lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) and rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) make a light, refreshing deodorant. Apple cider vinegar has natural antibacterial properties.

• 2 tablespoons dried thyme
• 2 tablespoons dried sage
• 2 tablespoons dried lavender
• 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
• 1 cup distilled witch hazel
• 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1. Steep herbs in witch hazel in a covered jar for one week. Strain, and pour into a spray bottle.

2. Add vinegar and shake well. Spray under arms as needed.
