After reading about the effects of your ordinary on the store shelf deodorant antiperspirants that you normally buy, I have thrown all of those away in the house. I have turned to an all natural deodorant.
I recently received a very nice organic all natural deodorant creme from Bella Organics. This one is totally different from another that I tried just the other month. This one is a nice solid deodorant that does not separate.
Ingredients: Organic Shea Butter, Organic Arrowroot Powder, (Vegan), Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Aluminum-Free Baking Soda, Organic Peppermint Essential Oil, Organic Vanilla Extract, Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil.
It's time to make the switch to an all natural organic deodorant! Regular antiperspirants work by either clogging the pores or shrinking the sweat glands. This is not good for you. The ingredients that your regular deodorant/antiperspirant use a form of aluminum to keep you from sweating. There is nothing wrong with sweating. It gets rid of the toxins that build up in our bodies. By inhibiting sweating in our underarm region, there is a rising concern that this may be one of the causes of breast cancer (those lymph nodes are right in our underarms, girls!), Alzheimer's and many other ailments. Be safe - go natural!
If you have always been a user of the antiperspirants that you buy at the store, you may find a bit of an adjustment period. You might perspire a little more than usual as your body adjust to not having the aluminum clogging your sweat glands any more. Help the detox period along by exfoliating your pits with a loofah, dry-brush, or a natural scrub or soap. Never use any anti-bacterial detergents as they contain toxins that have no business being in the delicate area of your armpits. Now I never had an adjustment period. Natural deodorants worked perfectly for me from day one.
