Deodorant has been one of those things I’ve just been waiting to switch over to a natural product. I’ve known about the dangers in conventional deodorant (aka aluminum!) for a long time but I’m scared to move away from any product that works because I don’t want to be stinky!
We could talk about deodorant for a long time but I think that’s another whole post in the making. In short…our bodies aren’t made for “antipersperient”. We perspire for a reason, our bodies need to cool themselves down. If we clog up our perspiration ducts with chemicals we aren’t doing ourselves any favors, although it might benefit us at first.
But honestly…do you want to be stinky all the time?
Naturally Fresh products help with this problem. They use natural minerals to control the odor while letting our bodies do their natural functions. Naturally Fresh produces a variety of products from Crystal Deodorants to Foot Sprays to help control the odor.
The Crystal Deodorant is really what interests me the most (although Naturally Fresh also sells a roll-on and spray on deodorant as well). Here’s what I love about it:
Yes, that really is all there is to them!
To use a crystal deodorant all you do is run the crystal under water each morning, apply to underarms and have all day protection from odors! It sounds to easy to be true but here’s how it works…
Potassium alum (what the deodorant is made from) is a natural anti-microbial, which means that when it comes in contact with bacteria, such as bacteria in sweat that is responsible for body odor, it inhibits its growth. Therefore, when bacteria is prevented from growing odor is also prevented, all while the body is able to maintain its proper course of eliminating toxins through sweat, as well as controlling body temperature.
Like homemade deodorant, you body has to get used to the new product and it’s new-found ability to run it’s proper course so when you first start using a crystal deodorant it may not work for the first few days.
You can purchase Naturally Fresh products on Amazon or at Walmart stores.
