Try This DIY Body Odor Eliminator Roll-On

Sometimes our morning hygiene routine, however meticulous it is, is not enough to keep us fresh for the rest of the day. This is especially true when we’re doing physical activities like working out and sweating like crazy. Given that it’s the first month of the year, and most of you may have the resolution to be more fit this year, we formulated a DIY body odor eliminator for a mid-day B.O. emergency.

Since this is a back-up deodorant, we made sure that it will be very handy and easy to use anytime, anywhere. Whether you’re in the middle of a workout sesh, party time with friends, or a busy day at work, you can discreetly use this roll-on to freshen up.

For this recipe, we used our very own B.O. Be Gone Essential Oil Blend, a blend specially made to eliminate body odor naturally. With this, you’re not only smelling good but you’re also saving yourself from putting harsh, dangerous chemicals under your arms every day.

What I Love About This DIY Body Odor Eliminator Recipe

Did you know that harmful toxins are lurking in your store-bought deodorant? If you’re a fan of all things natural like me, you’ll love this recipe too. I love that this back-up roll-on is made of only the finest plant-based oils that are safe and effective to use.

B.O. Be Gone Essential Oil Blend

Baking soda for body odor? Use this blend instead! A mixture of Patchouli, Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood, Lavender, and Sweet Orange Essential Oils, B.O. Be Gone Essential Oil Blend is our special formulation designed to naturally help get rid of body odor. The oils in this blend have strong antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal properties that are perfect in killing odor-causing bacteria.

Fractionated Coconut Oil

We used fractionated coconut oil as a carrier oil for this essential oil roll-on recipe. It will not only dilute the oils to make it safe for topical use, but coconut oil itself is very good for the skin. It will surely leave the skin of your armpits nourished and soft!

Roll-On Bottle

To make this recipe readily accessible, we put it in our amber-colored 10mL Roll-On Bottles. The roll-on makes the application effortless, the dark-colored bottle will preserve the effectiveness of the oil’s properties, and the bottle’s small size makes it easy to carry around wherever you go.

Emergency B.O. Back Up Recipe Tip

Whenever you’re using a roll on, any dirt or sweat that is on your skin can be rolled back into the roll on. You may want to wash the area of your skin before using this roll on.
