Beauty tricks using baking soda

Image via Good.is

I recently bought a box of baking soda for .89 cents. You want to know what I did with it? I made homemade deodorant. Although I am a big fan of Soapwalla, I wanted to make my own to see if it worked just as well. I mixed together coconut oil, baking soda and arrowroot which then thickened and I put in an old deodorant container. So far, it's been working awesome.

I recently ran across this article from GOOD on other ways to use baking soda. I'm putting some of these on my list to try out though I'm unsure I want to brush my teeth with baking soda.

Do you have a beauty trick using baking soda?

  1. Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide = awesome teeth whitener. You just have to be careful to only get it on your teeth.

  3. I agree with the last comment. I am actually using these products as breath deodorizer. Hydrogen peroxide if combined with baking soda, becomes a powerful deodorizer. It is also an effective teeth whitener. My friend, Ron Receveur, once asked me about my secret for having a whiter teeth. I just simply answered, baking soda.
