If you weren’t privy to our first armpit discussion, click here. I am happy to report that I have been using my own all-natural deodorant since its inception back in…oh…August? September? So here is the scoop…
A couple times a month, when I stick my nose knee deep in my armpit (mental picture) I can smell a body odor…nothing horrific, just my body’s 'scent' if you will. Like I said before I think it's a hormonal thing because it’s only one or two times a month, usually in the same week. But since we American’s do not like to smell our own odors, of any kind, ever…I dutifully grabbed my little travel tin of deodorant I bring with me from my purse, reapplied and WALLAH!! Perfect fix. I am not exaggerating AT ALL, once you reapply, it’s like the odor NEVER HAPPENED…which I find amazing.
HERE’S THE KICKER!! On 2 occasions, I decided that the risk of cancer was much less pertinent than the risk of stinking, cause let’s face it, ain’t that the truth sometimes!? So I used good ole’ Dove or whatever I’ve got from ‘back in the day’ and guess what?? I came home and did the knee deep in the armpit routine and I STILL SMELLED MYSELF!!
So news flash ladies and gentlemen, shoving aluminum in our pits doesn’t work all that perfectly either but we are so conditioned to think it does, that’s what we do.
News flash #2!!! Very excited to report that I also tried another all-natural deodorant that shall remain nameless but is an awesome and successful company that I am insanely jealous of (in a good way) and MINE WORKS EXACTLY THE SAME!!! Yay!!! They use essentially the exact same ingredients which I was also happy to discover after concocting my own formula so that makes sense that it would work the same.
So all of that to say, get CRAY CRAY and try a little ‘harm reduction’ as I like to call it. You don’t need to quit cold turkey, but the less chemical filled deodorant you use the better. So grab your Stay Fresh Travel Pal and RUN…well walk, maybe walk cause running may cause more sweating and then you might be tempted to shove aluminum in your pits!! SHOP BODY FOOD DEODORANT NOW!!
