I have been using natural deodorants for a few years now. Most people have heard that aluminum deodorant could cause breast cancer. Many studies have shown that aluminum builds up toxins in the body. Natural deodorants are great since they allow your body to sweat naturally. I was approached by WildRoot to try out their new deodorants. I thought it would be great to try a new brand. I love switching it up with new scents. WildRoot has many a good variety of scents like Tall Pine, Wildflower, Citrus Leaf and Meadow. They offer a Performance and a Sensitive line.
Switching to a Natural Deodorant
If you’re thinking of switching to natural deodorant. It’s important to know a few things. Your body will go through a “detox period”. The detox period is the time period where your body will get rid of toxins and bacteria. After switching to a non-aluminum deodorant, your body will start sweating and the excess bacteria will have a hard time keeping up. The detox usually starts right away and can last 1 day to 3 weeks. On average, the detox lasts 3 to 10 days. It’s best to stay hydrated and sweat it out like going to a sauna during the detox.
Another thing to think about is that you might be sensitive to baking soda. Women who shave their armpits, about half of them are sensitive to baking soda. Try out a deodorant with baking soda first and if you get irritated, try out the Sensitive line.
I received the Wildflower and Citrus Leaf deodorants. My favorite deodorant was the Wildflower. It has a lovely, light scent of Lavender and Ylang Ylang. I love how it glides on so smoothly. The texture is so silky. It’s great that it doesn’t leave any stains on my clothing. The Citrus Leaf has a sweet scent of Sage and Lime. I like using the Citrus Leaf Performance deodorant during a day when I know I’ll be exercising. I will definitely be buying more WildRoot deodorants in the future to replace my current natural deodorant.
It does take awhile to adjust to the natural deodorant, but it will be better and healthier for your body. Check out the wonderful line of deodorants of WildRoot here.
