My husband and I are getting back to basics. Ever since my husband developed his serious toe infection and landed in the hospital with his BP and blood sugar all out of whack (he's a diabetic), both of us have decided that it was time to get back to a healthier lifestyle. Part of that lifestyle is using products on our bodies that are as natural as possible.
When it comes to deodorants, most of your commercial ones all have aluminum chlorhydrate. This is a metal and can be absorbed through the lymph nodes. It has been known to cause cancer. So my husband and I checked out the Natural Foods Market in our area (a really nice one) and bought two Thai Crystal Deodorant Stones. These stones are mineral salts and nothing else. The stone is packaged very nicely with a screw-off clear plastic top (over 10 million sold). You simply wet the stone and apply to the underarm area. It is hypoallergenic, eliminates odor, has no fragrance, is non-staining and gives you 24 hour protection. The deodorant stone can also be used for foot odor. It dries immediately without leaving marks on your clothing. And no animal testing.
I definitely recommend the Thai Deodorant Stone. It's pure and natural, and the mineral salts kill odor causing bacteria. There are no harmful chemicals, oils, perfumes or emulsifiers.
If you want to live more naturally, give these stones a try.
