So have I, and its scary.
Main store-bought deodorant ingredient, Aluminum has been linked with the development of Alzheimer’s disease and is an endocrine disruptor, messing with your estrogen levels. When your body can’t process estrogen properly, you are at a higher risk of getting breast or prostrate cancer.
And that's not all. Check out http://dontmesswithmama.com/7-toxins-lurking-in-your-deodorant/# for some more information on the harmful chemicals that you could be slowly poisoning yourself with.
On a more positive note, I CAN HELP!
Purify Deodorant is made with only vegan, natural, locally sourced ingredients - most of which are edible! Don't go eating this deodorant though...
I've taken a hint from smudging for this deodorant blend (smudging is an ancient ritual of cleansing space by lighting sacred herbs to ward off evil spirits, bad vibes or juju).
Palo Santo, Lavender and Sage blend nicely to give your pits a sweet smell, as well as penetrate the skin to clear out any stinky skin bacteria (the smell behind BO). Arrowroot powder and Baking Soda help you remain dry while Candelilla wax gives the mix staying power throughout the day. Coconut oil offers antiseptic properties, and light sun protection, while Shea Butter keeps your pits extra soft despite any razors or waxing strips they may have come into contact with.
