I’m going to let you in on a secret… The Tidy Lady can get a little sweaty during a hard working day. So I searched the web for some deodorising body spray recipes (to use in addition to my natural deodorant.) I definitely noticed a difference when I used it.
I found a number of different recipes, so I put together the ingredients and proportions that made the most sense to me. This is the recipe I use:
Natural Body Spray Recipe.
1/2 cup boiled water
1/4 cup witch hazel
1/4 rosewater or 1/2 cup witch hazel in total if you’re not a fan
1 tsp baking soda – dissolved
1/4 – 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
15 drops of fav essential oils
1 spray bottle. I use a large-ish one that can take the whole amount, just a smidge over a cup, so around 250mls – 300mls capacity should do it.
You can get witch hazel and rosewater at most big chemists.
I dissolved the baking soda in the boiled water, waited for it to cool and added the lot into my re-useable spray bottle.
Give it a shake each time you use it.
Spritz it on after you’ve dried from your shower, and spread it around. It dries quite quickly.
You can have it unscented, or any scent you like by adding your choice of essential oils, which also have their own deodorising properties.
