Our organic and free of aluminum, 100% Pure Lemongrass Deodorant puts an end to odor-producing bacteria without harmful toxins or ingredients.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              
Why use natural deodorant? Many commercial deodorants contain aluminum zirconium tetracholrohydex, which is carcinogenic and toxic and has been linked to Alzheimer's, seizures, and breast cancer. And many deodorants are antiperspirant which prevents the body from sweating. But sweating is a natural function of our bodies and a way that we release toxins. It is good for us to sweat. The goal is to keep the smell calmed down right? So how can we do this? First it is good to know that when your sweat smells bad (which is a perception...some people like the way body odor smells) it indicates the presence of bacteria and will largely reflect your diet. Eating processed foods with a diet that contains a lot of sugar and fried foods will contribute to the way you smell. Incorporate more whole food, fresh foods.                                                                                                       

If you are just switching from commercial conventional antiperspirant/deodorant to natural, be prepared for a mild underarm detox. Your armpits are likely to detox when you make the switch, there will be an adjustment period where things may seem to get worse before they get better. Be patient. This may take a couple days to a couple weeks.  This detox process is different for everyone, but it is possible that you might experience an increase in odor or wetness as you detox away from an aluminum-free deodorant.

To use - Just pinch off a small amount on your fingers and rub under your arms! A little goes a long way, so don't over do it. I usually use a dime sized amount on each arm pit!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Research has linked the aluminum chlorohydrate in commercial deodorants to Alzheimer's disease and cancer. Many people chose to switch to natural crystal deodorant sticks. These natural deodorants are made with potassium alum. Another form of aluminum, the difference is that aluminum chlorohydrate is made up of molecules that get absorbed by the body, clogging the sweat glands to prevent perspiration. Potassium alum molecules are too large to be absorbed by the body and create a layer on top of the skin blocking odor. The jury is out on whether potassium alum can be harmful even when it cannot be absorbed by the body. Stay away from them!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    INGREDIENTS: 100% unrefined organic, non GMO Coconut Oil infused with a hint of  Tea Tree & Peppermint Essential Oil, unrefined organic Shea Butter, Beeswax, Arrowroot Powder, Jojoba Oil and Lemongrass Essential Oil.


Benefits:

COCONUT OIL: lauric acid in coconut oil kills odor-causing bacteria, antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral and antimicrobial

SHEA BUTTER- has amazing moisturizing and healing properties, helpful in keeping skin smooth and healthy

BEESWAX- protects skin, anti inflammatory, anti bacterial

ARROWROOT POWDER- absorbs extra moisture
 

More cool facts about Deodorant and Sweating 

A deodorant is a substance applied to the body to keep it smelling good. The main goal is preventing body odor. For thousands of years people have been using deodorant, just not the stick or roll on kind that we use today.

Humans have between 2 million and 5 million sweat glands, and the number of such glands you have will determine, in part, how much you sweat. While women generally have more sweat glands than men, men’s glands tend to be more active and produce more sweat. They're located all over our bodies, except inside our ear canals and on our lips and genitals. They're most concentrated on the bottom of our feet and least concentrated on our backs.
You have two different types of sweat glands: eccrine sweat glands, cool the body, secreting only water and electrolytes and are distributed over your entire body, and apocrine sweat glands, expel fats, proteins and toxins, are located on your scalp, armpits, and genital area.
Sweating has numerous health- and beauty-related benefits. Your skin is the largest organ of your body, and serves important roles just like any other bodily organ. For example, sweating helps your body:
Maintain proper temperature and keep you from overheating
Expel toxins, which supports proper immune function and helps prevent diseases related to toxic overload
Kill viruses and bacteria that cannot survive in temperatures above 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit
Clean the pores, which will help eliminate blackheads and acne

As your body temperature rises, your body will automatically perspire to release salty liquid from your sweat glands to help cool you down.
This is controlled by your autonomic nervous system, which you cannot consciously control.
Armpits are said to play an essential role in regulating your body's temperature, their roughly three million sweat glands pumping out as much as 14 liters of water a day (or as much as 4 liters of water every hour under extreme conditions). Interestingly, while most mammals possess sweat glands very few—including horses and humans—produce copious amounts of fluid to thermoregulate.
Like urine, sweat is sterile and odorless when it is first secreted, only generating its telltale odor as the liquid is fermented by environmental bacteria. In the case of armpit perspiration, there are two distinct types of glands that produce sweat. The eccrine glands cool the body, secreting only water and electrolytes. Given the relatively nutrient-poor quality of this sweat, it rarely attracts bacteria and does not strongly impact your scent. The apocrine glands, secrete water and electrolytes but also transport fats and proteins to the skin's surface, which are then digested by bacteria colonies—along with dead skin and hair cells—to produce the sweat odor as a metabolic byproduct.
The underarms have been compared to tropical rainforests. Certain bacteria thrive in moist, low pH environments. When you use alkaline soaps, you wash off the natural acid mantle your underarm produces. Which messes up the balance. Shaving aids in bacterial growth by removing the hairs that naturally wick moisture away from the skin surface.


Antiperspirants help to reduce the production of sweat. Aluminium salts – the active ingredient found in antiperspirants – dissolve into the moisture on the skin's surface. This forms a gel, which temporarily sits on top of the sweat gland, reducing the amount of sweat released.

Many also kill all the bacteria, the good and the bad.

Studies have shown mixed results about whether they are threats to our health. But after hearing about how beneficial sweating is, why would we want to prevent our underarms from performing this very natural process. It’s an interesting story actually, how our society created an 18 million dollar anti-perspirants and deodorant market.
