A few years ago, I learned about the potential health risk of using a store bought deodorant. Many people are unaware that most store bought antiperspirants are considered over the counter drugs. Because of this the FDA regulates them. This is due to the use of aluminum salt, which blocks the pores and prevents perspiration which changes body function. Many also contain parabens, which are preservatives that are widely used in personal care products.
Regular use of aluminum increases risk of Alzheimer disease and breast cancer. Paraben usage also increases risk of breast cancer. Meanwhile, these ingredients have been deemed safe by the FDA and continue to be used.
After learning about the risks associated with store bought deodorant and antiperspirants, I decided to switch to a natural deodorant that were free from these toxic ingredients.
I tried a couple of natural products but kept running into the same problem. They weren’t helping me to be odor free!
So my next step was to start looking for recipes that might work. The results? I managed to find a recipe that worked even better than any other product.
