Conventional aluminum-based deodorant is one of the most toxic personal care product we use. I’ve heard many people that have tried to switch to a natural deodorant over a conventional but the transition wasn’t going as planned. They were only spending 5-10 days before the transition got to be just too much for them to bear. When really you need to give the transition more time. Chances are that you have been slathering your armpits with conventional deodorant longer than you can actually remember and it takes time to detox and for your body to become accustomed to another form of odor protection.
When we try switching from conventional deodorant to natural deodorant, we have to let our body adjust to the different process of deodorizing. Conventional deodorants are for the most part aluminum based which creates a barrier to stop sweat. Additionally, conventional deodorants use a variety of other ingredients that cause a build-up. Not only does this build-up disrupt your natural function of sweating, but it also contains a lot of toxins.
Even when you stop using conventional deodorant, that layer of build-up will remain. So, your body can’t sweat the way it’s supposed to and your natural deodorant won’t be able to work around that layer of build-up. Our bodies can naturally rid our body of toxins, especially if we are eating well, exercising and drinking plenty of water. The thing is, it can take anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks, or longer, for our armpits to detox.
doTERRA currently has two natural deodorants, one is literally called Natural Deodorant and the newest release is Natural Deodorant With Balance. I am loving my Balance deodorant so much better than Schmidts. I also am liking the fact the EWG score on Balance is 1.
The following are the 4 uses and benefits of switching to doTERRA natural deodorant.
doTERRA Natural Deodorant Uses and Benefits
- Many personal hygiene products on store shelves include toxins or fillers that can actually be harmful for the body. The doTERRA Natural Deodorant formula is free of alcohol and preservatives, instead of using natural ingredients and essential oils to produce an effective deodorant. This formula also doesn’t include any artificial colors or fragrances, so you can feel safe as you apply it to the body each day.
- Perhaps the most important quality in a deodorant is the ability to keep the underarms feeling and smelling fresh. The doTERRA Natural Deodorant helps reduce underarm odor while leaving behind a clean, refreshing scent. This helps keep your underarms fresh throughout the day, so you don’t have to feel self-conscious about body odor or unpleasant smells.
- The doTERRA Natural Deodorant is unique because it uses essential oils to help ward off underarm odor, replacing it with a pleasant scent. Because essential oils are so potent and absorb easily into the skin, an essential oil–infused deodorant provides an excellent way to keep the underarms fresh. This formula uses essential oils like Cypress, Melaleuca, Cedarwood, and Bergamot to fight off unwanted odors and leave behind a fresh scent that is suitable for both men and women. With essential oils on your side, you can feel confident about smelling fresh and clean all day long.
- In addition to the use of essential oils, doTERRA Natural Deodorant uses other ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, and beeswax to ensure smooth application and better absorption into the skin. While many deodorant formulas leave behind a greasy after-feel, the doTERRA Natural Deodorant simply hydrates the skin, absorbs quickly, and uses a light formula to keep things fresh. With this product, you won’t have to worry about a greasy application, and can enjoy the smooth, light feeling on the skin.
