The vast majority of the business antiperspirants and deodorants we use are stacked with synthetic compounds and chemicals that enter the skin quick and might cause hormonal imbalances and irritations.
Julie Gabriel, The Green Beauty Guide, guarantees that numerous antiperspirants contain aluminum, added to dry out the sweat by infusing aluminum particles in the cells that line the sweat ducts. However, when the aluminum particles infiltrate into the cells, water streams in, so they begin squeezing and swelling the ducts shut, to prevent the sweat to get out. However, it is vastly improved to utilize natural antiperspirants and deodorants that enable toxins and sweat to leave the body instead of keeping them inside our body.
Besides, antiperspirants generally contain antimicrobial agents to prevent just the body odor, yet not the flow of the sweat. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is warning that the regular use of such antimicrobials may cause antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria!
In most of the cases, the main antimicrobial synthetics and chemicals that are used, are either polyhexamethylene biguanide or triclosan. Moreover, the majority of these commercial antiperspirants and deodorants neglect to keep the awful smell caused by apocrine sweat mixed with the bacteria.
This is why you should use a homemade natural deodorant!
- 10 drops of any Essential Oil
- 1/4 cup of Arrowroot Powder
- 5-6 tablespoons of Coconut Oil
- 1/4 cup of Baking Soda
Mix the arrowroot powder, baking soda and the coconut oil in a bowl, and use a spoon to mix them well. Then you can add the essential oil of your choice, and then put the mixture in the container that has a lid, and put it in the fridge.
At first it will be very strange when you use it, but once you become used to it, even you will feel the effects on yourself, and you will never use store-bought, harmful deodorants again in your life!
