1. Natural deodorant:

In summer or even if you are troubled by the foul odour coming from sweat, then you can use alum even as a deodorant. You can also apply it directly on your underarms and make a powder and put it in the bath water. Since daily use may prove to be harmful, use it only two or three times a week.

2. Stops blood flow:

Alum is effective in stopping the bleeding after an injury. Rubbing it and applying it on the injured area can stop the flow of blood. Although this recipe works only on small injuries. If the cut is not very deep, then you can also grind the alum and fill it. But avoid excessive use and keep out of reach of children.
