This is bar none the number one question I get from working at a health food store.
“I want a natural deodorant but I can’t find one that works!” I get it, It took me a long time and a lot of testing to find what works and what doesn’t. Now I love sharing my findings because you don’t need to give up hope! They exist!
Why Should I use a Natural Deodorant?
Well my love, the deodorants that are available in drugstores, specifically anti perspirants- block and clog up our lymph ducts in our underarms. Our underarms were meant to sweat to release toxins, and when we stop them from doing that they build up. On top of that, the chemicals that are used to prevent us from sweating are things like Aluminum, which builds up in our tissues.
It takes our body a long time to get heavy metals out of the system, especially when we are applying this stuff every day.
In terms of preventing breast cancer, it is HUGE to switch to a natural deodorant.
Natural Deodorants that Work!
This one is totes one of my favs. It smells like lemon meringue pie (no lie), and goes on all smooth-like. It is in a cream form, which freaks some people out, but it truly is effective at keepin’ the stink at bay all day.
Comes in 3 other scents: Lavender Rosemary, Unscented, Lemongrass and Cedar.
Like DOM’s, Schmidt’s deodorant is a cream based formula, that uses naturally antibacterial essential oils to keep the schtinkiness at bay. Another great one, and a little less expensive than DOMS. This one is Alicia Silverstones favourite I think.
For those that are totally freaked out by the creams, all hail a roll on! I’ve used Lafes for a while, and its liquid based. Its quite refreshing to put on, but I will be honest with you- this is better than a lot of the natural sticks out there, but not as good as the cream based ones above.
I’d give er’ 3.5/5 stars.
Make Your Own
I am all about the DIY’s, and I regularly make my own deodorant to save some cashola.
A recipe is from This Original Organic Life which you can make into stick form if you so desire.
Also this brand is super adorbs and quite similar to the top two creams.
Hope You Enjoyed this Post!
