As the summer starts to kick into gear, the weather gets warmer and that’s the time when we really start relying on our deodorant to keep us from smelling. However, if you are using conventional deodorant it might be causing more harm than good!
What’s Lurking in Your Deodorant?
Have you ever looked at the ingredient list on your deodorant? Conventional deodorants are full of ingredients, most of which we can barely pronounce. Many of those ingredients can be quite harmful. Aluminum is a big one. It’s been linked to toxicity of the organs. Another big toxin is Fragrance. It seems harmless enough, it just makes it smell pretty, right? But in reality it can cause immune system issues, allergies, organ toxicity, and it’s also not so great for the environment.
What Deodorant to Use
The good news is that it’s not hard to make your own deodorant. That’s right, I said make! We are getting a little DIY today! Why make your own deodorant? If you make it yourself, you know exactly what is in it. You can customize it to fit your needs – need it less harsh? Use less baking soda. And it’s pretty inexpensive, especially if you happen to have the ingredients already.
