How to Transition to a Natural Deodorant
It’s no secret that conventional deodorants are loaded with ingredients that are harmful to your overall health and wellness. I transitioned to a natural deodorant about 5 years ago. Here are some tips if you are ready to make the move for you, or for you and your family.
Not all natural deodorants are created equal. Trust me I’ve done the research 😉
The first thing you want to do is detox your armpits. My favorite technique is using Indian Healing Clay (Bentonite Clay) mixed with Apple Cider Vinegar. Using the clay and the ACV create a paste and apply to your underarm area. Allow the paste to dry and rinse clean (Thoroughly). I suggest detoxing your armpits every 2-3 months even after you’ve began using natural deodorants.
Here are my top Natural Deodorants. Both of these have held up in the gym, yoga practice, the heat of the Middle East (117 degrees and up), and cross-fit. They’ve also passed the job interview and first day on the job test 🙂
The key thing to keep in mine is that these deodorants are not going to prevent you from sweating but they will keep armpit odor under control.
Primal Pit Paste is a deodorant creme made with all natural ingredients. Non-Aluminum Baking Soda, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Beeswax (sticks only), Organic Arrowroot Powder, Natural Essential Oils (scents only), and Non-GMO Vitamin E derived from 100% Sunflowers.
Directions state: Apply only a pea sized amount of Primal Pit Paste under each pit.
The pea sized amount is ideal. I’ve noticed that if I apply more looking for extra protection I tend to get a rash. However, when I follow the directions I don’t have any issues. Highly recommend this natural deodorant. Comes in a variety of natural fragrances my favorite is the Patchouli!
Silvanapure Natural Deodorant! This is the first natural deodorant that I tried and it is by far my favorite! This stuff is clutch if you live an active lifestyle. Works like a charm in the gym! I love that it comes in traditional deodorant form. Though it is quite a bit softer in texture when compared to regular deodorant. There are several natural scents for this brand as well but my favorite is definitely the Peppermint. When I first started using this it was nearly $20 now you can get it for $9.97!!
