sweating is a good thing as many toxins are eliminated from the body via the pores. sometimes however, sweat can smell nasty when there is a lifetime of toxins in line to be eliminated.
while we cannot control the odor emitting from the guy next to us, we owe it to ourself and everyone around us to make sure we smell good especially in the event of detoxing/sweating out foul body odor. there is nothing worse than hugging a smelly person, and accomplishing this does not mean we need to compromise our health with chemically treated deodorants found in stores. our body doesn't need artificial deodorants that are confusing the senses.
masking a stench with artificial fragrances found in perfumes and industrial deodorants will not remove the stench of body odor and contain petroleum which is capable of causing confusion and stress for the body and mind. cancer research has found chemicals from women's deodorant, such as parabens, in many breast tumors.
an easy alternative to store bought deodorant, is found a few rows over in the cooking aisle in an orange box called “baking soda”. baking soda is the purest, most effective and harmless deodorant we can use. our essential oils agree with the substance as a "carrier". so we can create an all natural essential oil deodorant right on the spot.
it’s very easy to use: keep the baking soda in your bathroom with your essential oil synergies. you can repackage the baking soda in an all-purpose shaker. first remove the cap of the blend the choose to use with the baking soda. ad 1/2 teaspoon (see picture above) of baking soda in the palm of one hand and add a drop of essential oil to the baking soda. make the free hand damp with a few drops of water and mix this together to create a paste. then apply this under both armpits and other needed areas. that's it!
here are some recommendations for beginners:
a safe deodorant is important since what we apply onto the skin works it's way into our body as proven by medicinal patches and prescription mixtures. everything seeps into the body via the skin.
one more thing, the hand in the picture above has a very cute ring created by the security rings found on every cap. feel free to mix and match with our essential oil blends to make a natural deodorant with baking soda.
