I have made a commitment lately…that I will finally find a natural deodorant that works! As a personal trainer and yoga teacher, I’m active every day. I’ve tried natural deodorant before, but it only worked on my relaxation days. But I can’t handle the guilt of using aluminum any more, so I’ve been conducting a self-experiment! Watch the video below to see my findings thus far. I think I may be onto something. I got 2 of the best suggestions so far from my friend Christy, The Blissful Chef, and my friend Ann Taylor of Paleo Yogis.
- Exfoliate your armpits!
- Rotate your deodorants.
- Use tea tree oil.
- Use baking soda (or another form of powdered deodorant.)
My next experiment..making my own deodorant! I’ve read that you can make homemade deodorant with coconut oil, baking soda, and tea tree oil. I will update with news of the failure or success.
