If you want to ensure you smell fragrant all day long but don’t want to buy common deodorant products that are filled with potentially toxic chemicals, try making your own deodorant at home. When you mix half a cup of baking soda with half a cup of corn starch and 2-3 drops of lavender oil, you create a pleasantly scented deodorant powder that can easily be patted onto your underarm area with a damp cloth.
5. Canker sore rinse
While canker sores are benign, they can be incredibly sore and can even stop you from eating properly when they form on a sensitive part of the tongue or gums. You may be able to make them disappear more quickly by making a mouth rinse that contains 1sp of baking soda for every half cup of warm water. Swill the liquid around your mouth and then spit it out.
6. Gout controller
Gout causes pain and swelling in and around your joints in response to the formation of sodium urate crystals. Interestingly, studies show that these acid crystals are less likely to form when the pH of urine is lowered, so gout sufferers should try drinking 1tsp of baking soda dissolved in water after each large meal of the day. There should be a noticeable reduction in the frequency of gout flares.
