Preparation method:
Add the flat water to a glass/bowl, sprinkle with guar gum and mix vigorously until the gum is completely dispersed. The composition is left to rest for about 10 minutes to form a gel, then mix again for homogenization.

Add the powdered alum stone and mix well. Let the composition rest for 1-2 minutes for complete dissolution of the alum, then mix.
Phase C ingredients are added one at a time, with thorough mixing after each. The gel thus prepared is transferred to the dedicated container. pH: 4-4,5

The result is a deodorant that fights the appearance of an unpleasant smell of perspiration caused by bacterial proliferation. Pleasant scent, with fruity notes.

Instead of the essential oil and the fragrance oil from the recipe, other essences can be used according to preferences; essential oils with antibacterial action add to the efficiency of the deodorant.
