Nobody wants to stink, but with growing concerns over cancer-causing agents in the average container of antiperspirant, many of us are looking for an alternative.
For years I hemmed + hawed over switching to something natural. Every time I tried, I'd last a day or two and then the STINK would send me running back to my favourite antiperspirant. . 🌱Did you know you have lymph nodes right beside/under your arms? Lymph nodes must be able to drain properly to maintain a healthy body. Using something that inhibits sweating is directly effecting your body's ability to detoxify itself.
. 🌱Our society has put more store in not sweating than protecting the incredible machines God gave us to live in.
. 🌱Sweating is normal!
. 🌱Deoderant, unlike antiperspirant, deoderizes your pits but doesn't stop you from sweating. So your body gets to function normally but without any stink. Wooot!
I have used a couple different brands and it was a bit of a learning curve at first. Check out my stories for my thoughts + recommendations. I definitely wanted to use something that aims to use all natural + gentle products in such a delicate area.
It takes some time to switch your body from antiperspirant to deoderant, but it's worth a 2 or 3 weeks of hard work in my opinion.
Have you made this switch? If so, what do you use? If not, what's holding you back?
