An antibacterial homemade deodorant recipe is easy to prepare and use. It kills the bacterial growth, which is responsible for the awful smell that emits and leaves a fragrant smell. If you only use the base for odor removal, it will make way for the further smell. Therefore, it is necessary to add essential oils and fragrances to make the deodorant smell good.
A homemade deodorant recipe can be prepared by adding essential oils of your choice to the unscented deodorant.
