Lavender essential oil
Relaxing & calming
No synthetic fragrances
One study conducted by Ghent University found that antiperspirants actually increased the amount of bacteria present on underarm skin. It’s no wonder why the process of making the switch from conventional to natural underarm products can cause so much disruption to our personal hygiene. You’re better prepared to tackle body odor effectively once you understand what’s causing it.
Next... Care for your body mindfully
An active body is a healthy body. When we’re active, our bodies sweat to cool us down and help to release toxins. Being mindful of how often you’re active will help speed up the detox process. Natural deodorants work to control body odor, not to stop your body’s natural functions. Remember, sweat is a good thing!
Next... Take the challenge
Start with deodorant spray or deodorant cream. The main ingredient in the spray is sugar cane-derived organic alcohol, which is effective against bacteria, the source of body odor. The deodorant cream is made with cassava root and baking soda to reduce wetness and keep you fresh. Bring individually wrapped deodorant wipes with you on the go in case you need a little backup during the day.
Tip: If you shave your underarms, do that before bed and apply deodorant in the morning. Alcohol may irritate freshly shaved skin, so give your skin a chance to calm down overnight.
