Organic Deodorant That Actually Works!
For years I have struggled with the decision to use either antiperspirant or all-natural deodorant. Since my early days of middle school (the beginning days of puberty for me) I have always had a bit of a "sweating problem." Aside from being very active, I am easily flustered and have been known to get quite nervous around your typical "boy band" types. I am also obsessed with smelling good. For anyone who's ever used all-natural deodorants, you know that smelling good (and actually not sweating) are pretty much impossible because most organic deodorants SUCK.
However, for a health conscious, "organic" gal like myself, I was terrified of using antiperspirants after researching more and more about how dangerous this actually is.
Antiperspirants actually prevent sweat while deodorants simply prevent body odor. Americans spend $18 billion a year on deodorant for the purpose of blocking sweat and/or smell. Although no one enjoys having sweaty armpits, there are a lot of problems with preventing this natural process from occurring. I learned early on that the high levels of aluminum in antiperspirant is harmful, yet I would still use it out of embarrassment of having sweat stains!
However, I continued to learn more and finally said, enough is enough. I cannot put this crap on my skin any longer! The search for an organic deodorant that actually worked was quite arduous, but I finally found it!
I also learned something quite interesting during this process. Many people give up on organic deodorant too fast. What happens when you transition to an all-natural deodorant is that your body begins to detox from the build up of antiperspirant. Your smell may start to change (and could be a little sketchy at first) and you may sweat more because your body is actively trying to rid itself of toxins from antiperspirant. However, after a short detox time, your body will begin to regulate itself with the all-natural stuff. You will begin to sweat less and less and you will start to smell great!
