Ammonium Alum and Homemade Baking Soda Antiperspirant to stop sweating excessively

Visit us at

Hyperhidrosis - Ammonium Alum or Potassium Alum

You can generally find this coming as a crystallized stick, and this is one of the most natural deodorants that you can find. It is inexpensive and has a shelf life of about a year so you can be certain that you will be getting value for money.

This is however not an antiperspirant so you will still sweat, but it has an inhibiting antibacterial action which cuts down on the bacteria buildup which in turn reduces odor.

This is a natural deodorant that is gaining in popularity as word about it spreads. A few years ago many people would have given you a blank stare if you went and asked for an ammonium alum deodorant. These days the tide is turning for natural deodorants and ammonium alum is going straight to the top of many people’s lists.

This is also my most favored method of dealing with sweat, seconded only by the use of essential oils.

Baking Soda

You also have the option of using baking soda as your natural deodorant of choice. It works to neutralize any odors and kills odor producing bacteria, which is also the reason why our mothers used to keep an open package of baking soda in the fridge!

If you want something that’s been pre-made you can look for a natural deodorant which contains baking soda, but be warned that these deodorants may also contain other substances which aren’t as good for you.

Check out the list of “bad” ingredients which you might find at the very beginning of this section.

If you want to use baking soda au natural then all you need to do is to dust a little bit of it over the offending areas. Cornstarches also work along the same principles and can be dusted on you in lieu of baking soda if you’ve run out (although you might feel odd at first, dusting yourself with cornstarch, it can and does work).

On the other hand you can use a mixture of baking soda and cornstarch to deal with your sweat problems. Just take equal parts baking soda and cornstarch and apply.
