What Type of Deodorant Are you Using?
Something to think about: Are you still using name brand deodorants with aluminum? Do you know how this is harming your body by adding toxins and clogging your lymph nodes? Have you considered using Aluminum-Free, Sulfate-Free, Phthalates-Free, Paraben-Free, Synthetic Dye-Free, & Fragrance-Free Deodorant?
I know this can be quite a transition. Most of my life I have worn Secret. "Strong enough for a man but made for a woman." However, after my recent stint with breast cancer, I had to re-evaluate my lifestyle and this included the products that I use. After doing my research and realizing that I had to use organic/natural deodorant, I also realized that I should do a routine underarm detox.
1.) Armpit Detox
It will help aid in the transition from any traditional deodorant including anti-antiperspirants. It is very important to detox after using traditional deodorant for many years. Especially anti-antiperspirants, which hold in the toxins that your body is trying to express. This will also help if you are having a reaction to a natural deodorant including baking soda.
Simply put a bit in your palm, mix with a tiny bit of water or Organic Apple Cider Vinegar and spread across your armpits. Leave on for 5 to 10 minutes and do this daily for a week. The charcoal and natural detoxifying Clay will help to pull all of the toxins from under the arms which can accumulate. The calendula flowers will help to regenerate and heal the area and the lavender will heal and calm a reaction. It is very important to detoxify this area as it is very close to the lymph nodes. It's good practice to do a routine detox. This armpit detox can also double as a very nice face mask.
Ingredients: French Green Clay, Activated Charcoal, Calendula Flowers*, Lavender Essential Oil*.

Deodorant is quite possibly the most carcinogenic product that we use on our bodies and we use it daily. To find an effective alternative is very difficult and could be very embarrassing if it doesn't work. I have tried many name brand alternatives and have found them to be ineffective and make you feel very slimy or sweaty. We have a product on our site made from effective essential oils that work great. You just need a small amount under your arms after you shower and you're ready to go for the whole day! This deodorant really works. It is Talc-free. Aluminum-free. Paraben-Free. Propylene Glycol Free. and Triclosan Free.

This natural deodorant is effective, yet gentle on the pits. It was created for man pits and woman pits alike. It is Aluminum free as well as Synthetic & Fragrance-Free.

You only need a pea-sized amount on each pit in the morning. This jar will last you approx 6 months of daily use. It comes in a clear glass jar (4 oz.) that can be reused or recycled.
