DIY Alum Stone deodorant

Hello everyone,

Today it’s all about armpits , I’ve been disappointed and mostly scared of all the deodorants there was, disappointed because they don’t do the job and scared because of all the harmful and wasteful ingredients in them.

So here I am with a DIY deodorant using alum stone. I made it a few weeks ago, and at some point, my mom and my best friend asked for a jar too, and I taught that you guys would love it to try.

But what is Alum Stone ? It is a natural crystal stone, it contains pure potassium alum mineral salts extracted from a natural quarry. Alum stone is known for its astringent and mildly antiseptic properties. So it will kill all the nasty bacteria that cause armpits to smell, it will also help heal any razor cuts and stop them from bleeding.

You can either use the stone itself by moistening it and applying it directly. Or you can follow this recipe that adds a nice smell with musk and coconut oil which has amazing moisturizing properties.

Why is it important to moisturize your armpits ? Because it’s a sensitive skin area that gets a rough treatment from all the razor shaving harsh chemicals, that result in it turning dark ( very unattractive ), Keeping them moisturized and exfoliating that area can prevent that problem.

I use musk because it’s natural and it smells great, but feel free to use essential oils .

 

What you need is :
  • An empty container ( I just used an old jar from some empty beauty product)
  • 1Ts alum stone powder
  • 1Ts coconut oil
  • 1ts of grated musk
deodorant ingrediants and steps
  1. Start with a clean and dry container .
  2. Add in the alum stone powder and the grated musk.
  3. After wards you want to melt your coconut oil in a bowl of warm water and add it into the mix.
  4. Mix all the ingredients together and let it harden.

How to use it ?
dip your fingers in the mixture and massage it into clean armpits after a shower.
It will keep you smelling nice and fresh until you next shower.
Did you ever use Alum stone? what purpose did you use it for ? And was it any good?
