Say I, if you've tried to use natural deodorant unsuccessfully? I! lol. The body is meant to sweat at times. It's the bodies way of eliminating waste. One of these areas are your armpits. The pits of your arm are meant to breathe. It shouldn't be clogged with anti-perspirant aluminum ridden deodorants. The skin is the largest and thinnest organ of the body. which means its absorbs everything. With all this being said, do you want to stink? ABSOLUTELY NOT! So we conform, give in and use the anti-perspirant deodorants because the natural ones fail, they don't work, you still smell, it stains your clothes, breaks out your pits. I've heard it all. lol
Ok let's rewind a bit! You can call me tried it all girl! Before I dive fully into advocating about anything, I myself become the “guinea pig”. I research, I test! I've tried countless natural deodorants over the years. Many were utter failures. And lets not talk about the summer hot months. Ha! No one has to ever tell me I smell, I can smell myself when my deodorant has started to fail me.
So here is the thing with natural deodorant for it to work successfully.
First things first, do not start with the mindset that you do not want to sweat ever. It's ok to sweat. You just don't want to smell.
Detoxify your arm pits using bentonite clay. Bentonite is a swelling clay. When it becomes mixed with water it rapidly swells open like a highly porous sponge. From here the toxins are drawn into the sponge through electrical attraction and once there, they are bound. Aluminum Free Deodorant. will never work successfully without detoxify your pits. You arms pits have been clogged with aluminum for years. Even if you decide to stay with the killer cancer causing deodorants, still detoxify from time to time to pull out the toxins and chemicals. I know some of you are wondering “well how to do I detox my armpits?” Here is a simple recipe.
1 tablespoon of bentonite clay
1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon water
combine all these to make a paste and apply to armpits
let dry and leave on for 5-20 minutes
wash off in the shower
3. After detoxifying your armpits you can now apply your natural aluminum free deodorant. You will have better results. You may have to detoxify your armpits daily until your natural deodorant works for you
4. You may have to reapply halfway through the day. If you find that the deodorant is not working any longer, you can wash up your pits with a wash cloth or paper towel and reapply.
5. When you put on natural deodorant, rub it into your pits and let it dry. This can help to prevent staining of clothes.
Once I got over the fact that my deodorant was no longer of “Secret” status. It worked! I had to detoxify my arm pits a few times to get the natural deodorant to work for me. Now I detoxify weekly or bi-weekly. I also make an Aluminum Free Organic Deodorant. Check it out here (click on picture.
