This DIY magnesium oil spray deodorant is really effective and doesn’t irritate the skin, leave you itchy or cause a rash. Baking soda is used as part of this recipe but, found out that some people react unpleasantly leaving them with red rashes or itchy underarms. Baking soda works incredibly well in deodorant recipes, but if you can’t tolerate it, don’t use it.
This natural deodorant quickly dries, doesn’t contain an oil so it won’t stain clothes, doesn’t contain baking soda and it all actually works like a charm.
The idea of incorporating magnesium was also a great idea. Because we all need more magnesium in our lives. Well most of us do. This deodorant is sweat proof even in a hot southern California summer day or while exercising.
For those who’ve tried magnesium oil before, you know that it feels oily but actually doesn’t contain any actual oil. It’s incredibly effective at preventing underarm odor and you get a boost of magnesium as a plus. If you add some essential oil, it can also turn into a great smelling deodorant.
Note: Some people feel a tingly sensation when they first start using magnesium oil but, this reaction is completely normal. This occurs especially for those who are low in magnesium and it should fade in a couple days.
Tip: To make this deodorant spray last longer and become even ore effective is: mix ¾ cup of water with ¼ cup apple cider vinegar and apply to underarms after showering and let dry before applying the spray. This will help remove any natural bacteria on your armpits.
