Ever wonder why your clothes are so discolored in the armpit area after using your favorite deodorant? The dirty little culprit responsible is something called aluminum, which is the main ingredient in your deodorant stick. It stops you from sweating but also ruins all your clothing, darkens your underarm area and is dangerous to your health.
Our skin is our largest organ and is very porous. It absorbs the things we put onto it, so if you shave your underarms pretty often and use a deodorant that has questionable ingredients, you're only putting your health at risk.
Here are 3-tried and tested organic deodorants that will put your pits into the sweet smelling category and won't ruin your clothing OR more importantly, your health.
1.) Schmidt's Lavender+Sage Deodorant -is made from a signature blend of 100% all natural ingredients. Their formula effectively neutralizes underarm odor and absorbs wetness without the use of aluminum or other harmful chemicals. There are 5 different scents but my favorites are the lavender + sage and the fragrance-free.
2.) Primal Pit Paste (Unscented) Deodorant -smells so scrumptious, you could eat this stuff! (but rub it on your smelly pits instead, not your morning toast) This is not an antiperspirant, but you would not know it because it keeps you dry. It is important to sweat and release toxins. Most deodorants and antiperspirants not only keep the toxins in by preventing you from sweating, but they are designed to absorb into the skin. This organic miracle wonder is made with 100% organic and wild-crafted essential oils--never synthetic chemical fragrances. Try the thyme and lemongrass scent too!
3.) Purely Great Women's Citrus Cream Deodorant- uses anti-bacterial essential oils that help with deodorizing and with hormone balancing. Keeps your lymph nodes healthy and lets your pits breathe and release those toxins! Made with 4 simple ingredients, so from the minute you open the jar and smell it you'll experience the pleasant difference between this gentle all natural deodorant and the harsh commercial brand products. One jar lasts about 3 months. Also try the lavender scent too!
