It’s impossible to avoid toxins, but certain habits can limit your exposure. Avoid using anti-bacterial soap, which has hormone-disrupting triclosan. Use castile soap instead. It’s simple, natural, and can be used as hand soap, body wash, and dish soap. The aluminum salts in antiperspirant deodorants aren't healthy as well. Use homemade versions instead! Buy organic food to avoid GMOs and pesticides. At home, use BPA-free products and filter drinking water.
Commercial deodorants contain potential carcinogens like aluminum and parabens. Switch to coconut oil deodorant because it is free of chemicals and kills bacteria, which reduces odor in the armpits. Using dry powders will soak up moisture and sweat. To make the deodorant, mix equal parts coconut oil, cornstarch or arrowroot, and baking soda. For extra drying power, add more cornstarch or charcoal powder.

The deodorants that we use on a daily basis contain toxic chemicals. The toxins could cause skin irritation and imbalance the pH levels. Instead, opt for natural alternatives, such as baking soda, lemon juice, and coconut oil. They are organic, safe, inexpensive, and efficiently fight body odor!
Coconut oil has several benefits and uses in the everyday household. It can be used as a mouthwash, lip balm, hair oil, baby oil, moisturizer, wood polish, insect repellent, and even stain remover. It has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which may help wounds heal faster. It also has antioxidant properties which can keep the liver and kidney healthy.
We all are tempted to use the sleek, and attractive body care products. Triclocarban and other dangerous chemicals are used in the marketed cosmetics, not safe for our tender skin and lips. Avoid the toxic ingredients: parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde, triclosan, and fragrance in body care products. Instead, make harmless and aromatic DIY essential oil home made products that are gentle on your skin: soap, toothpaste, shampoo, lotion, and cosmetics.
Commercial deodorants contain harmful chemicals and petroleum-based compounds which are absorbed by your skin and end up entering your blood stream. If you want to smell great and avoid chemicals, try switching to natural deodorants. This list has natural deodorants recipes with different combinations of ingredients. Choose one that works best for you and go natural.
ACV is a good deodorant. It kills the bacteria that creates body odor by breaking down the sweat on our body. Dip a cotton ball in a 1:1 ACV and water mixture. Swab the armpits with it. Let it evaporate. Then powder them with a 1:1 cornstarch and baking soda mixture to keep dry. You can also add it to your bath water. Add a few drops of a fragrant essential oil. Always use a diluted form and test for allergy.
