Lemon for eco deodorant? Eco beauty tips

Just saw this fascinating little video basically giving the eco tip that if you use a lemon and lime under your arm, they make a great deodorant!

The lady in the video seems to swear by it. I’ll try it some time soon.

The Eco benefits seem many:

  • no plastic packaging to cause problems in our environment
  • waste will break down fast (we used to throw our used lemons back into our compost and next year they would be great soil to grow new veges)
  • hence totally recyclable!
  • no carbon emissions from bottles of deodorant having been shipped to the store
  • no carbon emissions from factories, warehouses and stores bringing commercial deodorant to you
