Why use a natural deodorant when you can get so many varieties of store bought offers?
The problem is the ingredients.
Varieties of aluminum may be the biggest problem. As you probably know, fluoride is a derivative of aluminum and they’re both bad for you.
Do Not do a search for “harmful ingredients in deodorant”.
Why not you wonder? Because we’re gonna show you on the next page the 7 common toxic ingredients in deodorants… And then I’m going to give you the formula I’m testing, which is really easy…
One correction I want to make on this next recipe.
In her formula, she says she worked hard to find aluminum free baking soda…
Almost all – if not all – baking soda is aluminum free. Bob’s Red Mill and Arm & Hammer are both aluminum free.
Bob’s Red Mill has “Aluminum Free” displayed on their packages. That’s good marketing; because, most people are confused over what does and what doesn’t have aluminum in it.
Claude Hopkins created the adv campaign that shot Schlitz Beer to a tie for first place in market share with Busch by describing the way water was sourced, cleaned and prepared to make Schlitz. Everyone did it that way.
The original tuna sold in cans was pink. When white tuna appeared, no one wanted it until a marketer for the white tuna came up with this quip: “Our all white tuna does not turn pink in the can.”
I love advertising and marketing. More power to Bob for his marketing…
But it’s beneficial to know the truth sometimes.
Cornstarch is what typically has aluminum in it. So if possible find corn starch that is aluminum free. Don’t worry about the baking soda.

Eating a good diet and drinking enough water can really cut down the odor, but sometimes you need something else.
Sure, the conventional deodorant antiperspirants work great, if you don’t mind infusing your armpits with cancer causing aluminum, but for those of us who have sought a more natural option, you may have noticed that the pickings are rather slim.
There are a lot of natural deodorants out there, it’s just that, well… most of them don’t work well.
I say this from experience, as a woman who has been pregnant four times in the last 5 years (pregnancy increases sweat) and worked out through the pregnancies.
So what to do? Sweat like a horse or get Alzheimers and breast cancer? Is there no other option?
Fortunately, there is!…
