Tired of using toxic chemical on your body? So am I.
I decided to take the big step and switch to a natural deodorant but boy was it a one of the smelliest yet amazing decision I’ve made so far.
One day I woke up and decided I didn’t want to use toxic deodorants any longer. One reason being that the chemical in antiperspirant deodorant such as aluminum may lead to breast cancer. Who wants that? I sure don’t!!! But let me tell you the switch is quite a process.
I decided that I will just take a shower and put on my new natural deodorant from the brand Tom’s. Wrong!! That day I did an 8 hour shift plus 2 hours of commuting to work and by the middle of the day I was very sweaty and musty. As soon as I got home, I made sure to clean my under arms and do the under arm detox which I should of did the night before.
There are multiple detoxes you can use for your arm pit, but I decided to use the Indian healing clay and apple cider vinegar (acv) mix. Which consist of mixing the two ingredients into a paste then, applying it to your under arms, leaving it on for 5- 20min until dried, and washed it off. You should do this for at least 2-3week until you’re not stinking or sweating a lot.
DON’T DO IT
I still was sweating so I decide to put baking soda under my arms, I was wrong again. It ended up irritating and burning my skin. I had to oil my underarm for 2weeks with coconut oil to restore them.
After a long 2 weeks of detoxing my under arms and looking for the perfect aluminum free deodorant, my under arms are toxic free. I have tried many natural deodorants but my favorite one is Native. My favorite scent from them is the coconut and vanilla.
P.S Dieting plays a BIG part in body odor as well so eat healthy and drink water.
