DIY Green Deodorant to Keep you Fresh All Day


Body odor may come from different parts of the body, but to most people it sources from the armpits. Unfortunately the deodorants made by companies are made with chemicals that can be harmful to the body if ingested for a long time. Use natural deodorants to protect the body and keep body odor at bay.
