Living naturally doesn’t mean compromising. It certainly doesn’t mean personal hygiene standards have to slip. Quite the opposite.
Plus, it means that you can also take more control over how you go about fulfilling your personal care needs by being less reliant on what’s on the shelves at your local chemist.
Conventional deodorants have been shown to be harmful to our health, and are packaged in way which are damaging to the environment.
In this article I reveal how you can make your own natural deodorant, which will reduce the toxic load on your body and the environment, and will be a lot kinder to your purse as well!
I will explain how you can add one simple ingredient to a product you are likely to already possess, to arrive at a really effective and low-cost deodorant, which promises to protect, rather than potentially threaten, your health.
But, whilst conventional, Aluminium based, deodorants are often quite effective, the health concerns associated with using them are just too great. Not only are some of the ingredients of modern deodorants considered to be direct causes of Autoimmune conditions like early onset dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, but there’s also concerns that they contribute to conditions like Autism and Cancer, but they usually offer antiperspirant protection, which is really bad news…
Some of our major lymph glands are located in and around the armpit. This is because the lymphatic system is responsible for detoxifying the body, and 40% of the bodies waste is eliminated via the skin, often via our sweat. As the armpits are responsible for much of the sweating we do, this action provides us with an invaluable means of regulating our bodies wastes, and therefore, our health.
Consequently, the last thing we need to do is clog up the pours in two of the most important exit routes for our toxic waste. And sadly, our addiction to antiperspirant deodorants is related to an alarming array of dire statistics, including a significant increase in prostrate and mammary cancer, with the Aluminium present in these modern deodorants proving to assist the migration of cancer cells throughout the body.
I don’t want to go into too much detail about the plethora of health concerns associated with using conventional antiperspirant deodorants, but if you click on the GreenMedInfo link for a long list of scientific research outlining the toxic nature of these products and all of the health risks associated with using them, and just scan down the list of article titles you’ll get the picture pretty quickly!
As more and more people are waking up to the hazards of a lot of modern products, I am sure I am not alone in having spent a lot of time and money experimenting with an array of different natural deodorants, some working better than others, but all not quite achieving the 100% efficacy I desired.
Consequently, I am utterly delighted that my extremely simple deodorant solutions work completely for me and my customers… so far!
Protection is excellent for 24 hours, and till pretty good for up to 48 hours, (and probably longer, but I’m not admitting to that in a public forum!!!)…
Obviously, I can’t vouch for the Wild As The Wind Deodorants for you, but as they’re the only ones that have ever thoroughly worked for me, I’d be willing to bet that they’re pretty likely to work for everyone else as well.
(Your feedback, if you already use our deodorants, in the comments at the bottom of this post would be very much appreciated!)
Wild As The Wind Deodorant No. 1
It can be a little stingy on broken skin, but is great for shaving rash, and will help heal broken skin faster than if it wasn’t used.
It kills bacteria, and so it is bot deodorant and antiseptic.
And, it’s called…
Mineral Spritz comes in a really easy to use atomiser bottle. Two or three squirts per armpit are ample, so it lasts a long time.
Wild As The Wind Deodorant Ingredients
To be honest, there’s really not a great deal in the second Wild As The Wind Deodorant suggestion. It’s simply Bicarbonate of Soda dusted over a pre-oiled armpit after showering.
You can use any carrier oil, or oil blend, to prepare your armpits for the application of the Bicarbonate of Soda. I use the residual facial oil left on my hands after appling it to my face. Only a very slight film of oil is required.
This powder deodorant goes on just fine on freshly bathed, mildly damp skin, but it is important to protect your skin by applying an oil prior to dusting your armpits with bicarb. Organic Sweet Almond Oil is fantastic for most skin types and so is highly recommended.
