DIY Deodorant

Deodorant has many toxic ingredients that can wreck havoc on our bodies. When choosing a deodorant you want to AVOID the following ingredients: aluminum compounds, parabens, silica, triclosan, propylene glycol, talc, and steareth-n. These toxins can actually cause anything from minor skin irritation to kidney and liver damage to cancer. Luckily, there are a variety of all-natural and organic brands that do not have these harmful ingredients, which are capable of giving you the same amount of protection. You can find these natural and organic deodorants at any health food store. I prefer to use Crystal Essence or Tom’s of Maine, which are on the cheaper end of the spectrum and I can find at pretty much any grocery store (very convenient). However, if you have time and are willing to find the ingredients you can always make your own deodorant at home. I posted a video below of a really great organic deodorant recipe. I hope you enjoy!
