If you’ve been following our journey at all, you know that natural deodorant has been a trial and error for me for over 6 years. It has been quite the challenge to find one that works for me. I have tried so many and none of them truly worked all day for me. I know the dangers of using deodorants with aluminum in them so I refused to go back to using them again but I needed to find something that would keep me fresh smelling all day. Smelling funky is definitely not my thing!
If you have followed my blog for the past few years, you know how I feel about deodorant with aluminum. I have been on the search for the perfect natural deodorant for a few years now. With all of them that I have tried, you would think something would work, right? A few have come very close to meeting my needs but honestly, by the end of the day, I still had that “funk” smell. Until now…
In June I posted about Bubble and Bee’s Super Pit Putty stick deodorant. I kept using it after I wrote about it and got okay results. But, as the summer months went on and the heat rose, so did my body chemistry. So, once again I was on a search to find another natural deodorant that could keep up with me. Continue reading
Hello! I am finally able to get back into posting articles on my blog! I am sorry I have been away for over two months. My last post was at the end of June and since then, my family and I have moved to a new home and city, we have had the kitchen at the new home torn up for the past five weeks doing a renovation, both kids have started back to school and I have still been learning more about holistic ways to become healthier and happier.
I am very excited to be able to sit down to write something again. I have really missed posting on my blog each day. My next few posts will be about a natural deodorant that I have started using that is now my all-time favorite (I have literally tried about a dozen natural deodorants). The one I now use keeps me feeling fresh all day and has no aluminum in it. I can’t say enough about it!
Within the past two days, I have been juicing. I watched the documentary, “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead,” a few months ago and it really had a huge impact on me. I bought a juicer, didn’t like the juice it created and took it back. I exchanged it for a different model in the same line and juiced about an hour ago. I will be writing about the results soon.
Another topic I have been thinking a lot about lately are essential oils. Do you use them and if so, what kind and how do you use them? I currently use lavender, peppermint and tea tree oil. I know there are hundreds of great uses for oils and I am really interested in using them to help heal.
Well, I sure hope you have been well in the past few months. I hope you have been taking good care of your health and paying more attention to what you are eating, drinking, putting on your skin, what cleaning products you use in your home, what candles you burn (try soy, not synthetic). Have you tried a green smoothie yet? We are still drinking those each day and love them!
Please let me know if there is anything you are wondering about that will help your health and I will write about it. In the meantime, enjoy your day!
It’s all about the journey…
When I attended massage therapy school 10 years ago, I started hearing about the devastating effects that antiperspirant deodorants can cause. Two years ago when my family and I went to see a naturopath, the doctor talked to me about switching my deodorant to one without aluminum right away.
Coconut oil rescued me! Continue reading
