Sweating is one of the chief ways in which the body expels toxins. This is why no one should be using antiperspirant deodorants because it will hinder this very important and natural function. The skin has pores that don’t only expel waste but also absorbs anything that it comes in contact with. You have to be very mindful of the types of soaps, deodorants, lotions, and other skin related products you use.
Most store-bought deodorants are very harmful due to the toxic ingredients they contain. Don’t think for a second that these chemicals that many of you are using on your skin are not having an impact on your health. They do, you may not be able to link them to a specific problem, but this still doesn’t negate the fact that they are harming you.
But the good news is; you don’t have to rely on these types of deodorant. You can make your own; it is fairly easy to do so. All you need is a few basic ingredients, no specific measurement is required, for the most part, just use your own judgment. The two main ingredients are tea tree oil and about 2 teaspoons of baking soda (for a 1OZ bottle), you can add a little lavender for fragrance or maybe some other essential oils, dependent on your preference. But before doing any of this make sure to purchase some empty deodorant bottles, to pour your mixture in. If you want your deodorant to be more water base, you can incorporate some rose water with the other ingredients.
