If you’ve been using commercial deodorants for years and haven’t made the switch to a natural deodorant — now is the time! Your armpits are in such close proximity to your breast tissue and your lymph nodes, so if you’ve never tried to detox these babies, it’s time to give your underarms some serious TLC.
A few things you may not know about commercial deodorants:

They contain…
  • aluminium
  • parbens
  • estrogen mimickers
  • artificial fragrance
It is very crucial to avoid aluminum based deodorants/antiperspirants. Aluminum is used to literally block your pores to stop you from sweating. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin, and for a body that is already overloaded with toxins, some may have trouble excreting it.
Yet when it comes to “natural” deodorant, I think I can speak for everyone when I say “I WANT IT TO WORK!” So the brands pictured below are tested by me, and they actually work!
  1. Rooted Goddess – My top choice…locally made by an amazing woman with 100% plant based material. It will work to nourish your skin, as oppose to filling you with more toxins. Yes ladies, it works…60 minutes of Vinyasa Flow and I still smelled of Grapefruit….tried and tested true. They also have a sensitive skin option which is citrus base and baking soda free.
  2. Dom’s Deodorant – Aluminum free, alcohol free, paraben free, phthalate free, cruelty free, organic and vegan. Comes in a recyclable jar, and one jar will last up to 4+ months. If you can get used to the application (its more like a cream) this one really works.
  3. Lafes – Propylene glycol free, Aluminum free, and GMO free, Lafes natural deodorant in a convenient twist-stick features a smooth glide and 24-hour odor fighting performance (clinically tested).

Underarm Detox Recipe

  • 1 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 TBSP of bentonite clay
  • 1 TSP of Distilled Water
  1. Mix together in a small bowl. Apply the paste onto your under arms (armpits) and allow it to sit and dry for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Using a warm cloth, wipe the clay off of your skin until it’s clean. Alternatively, you can take a warm shower to rinse the clay mask away.

Wishing you a little more simplicity and ease today,
