Today I am sharing one of my secrets with you! (Shhhhh…)
Okay so I already spilled the beans from the blog title. So let’s talk about how I started on my journey of using baking soda as roll on. I was reading too many news about how the use of roll-on and antiperspirants could be one of the causes of breast cancer so ! started my research on the use of natural product since that was the best way out abi? ( beside i have this thing for looking for natural alternatives to chemical products)
Anyways, went to google (since he is our best friend) and I found the simple, cheapest answer, BAKING SODA! (100gm is about N130 and could last you for 4 months or more. All you need is a pinch in each under arm a day, lobatan!) Baking soda has tons of uses tho!
So when that opportunity came to run errands from the office at SHOPRITE, I got myself a sachet of Baking soda (Baking soda is a naturally processed white crystalline powder, it is also known as sodium bicarbonate, bicarbonate of soda, sodium hydrogen carbonate, or sodium acid carbonate).
I couldn’t even wait to get home to try it! I went to the toilet, put a pinch in both under arm and I could not believe my nose *wide grin*and for 3 years now I have been stuck on it! (Before this time I had stopped using antiperspirant and lime scrub won’t take me all through the day I would have already been smelling like a pig *covers face* and I’ll be so embarrassed. God help me if I was in church and we have to lift up holy hands; ehen mio je try e)
Sometimes when I meet someone choking me with body odour (BO) I just feel like handing them a sachet/teaspoonful of baking soda *smiles*
Okay people if you tried it, share your experience!
P.S: In future post I will share my own recipe because baking soda just takes care of the odour not sweat!
