I squeezed out some lemon juice into a strainer, and poured it into a bottle. This little spray bottle holds the juice of three lemons. With the lemon slices, I was only using about one lemon a week, so I calculate this bottle will last me three weeks! I do have to keep it in the fridge to keep it fresh.
So, to recap: lemons are cheap, they smell great, and apparently, they make really great deodorant! This seems like one of those things that's too good to be true, but it's continued to work for me. I've had no skin reactions and I have pretty sensitive skin. The only contraindication for putting lemon on your skin that I know of is that it can make your skin more sun-sensitive. But since armpits are rarely out in the sun, I think I'm safe.
Let me know if you try this!
