Unlike natural deodorants, most conventional deodorants are loaded with toxic ingredients that penetrate the skin fast a lot of health issues including cancer. These deodorants contain aluminum which is used to block your sweat glands to prevent sweating. However, aluminum is a very toxic ingredient that, according to many recent studies, causes breast cancer. Additionally, it depletes calcium from your body and damages the endocrine and lymphatic systems.
Did you know that manufacturers often put 10-25 percent concentration of aluminum in deodorants because the FDA requires that all antiperspirants decrease the average person’s sweat by 20 percent? Believe it or not, it’s a whole lot of toxic aluminum for just one product.
Also, by using these antiperspirants you are preventing the toxins in your body from coming out in sweat. This is why we must stop using these conventional deodorants. I have found that homemade deodorants do a great job killing the bacteria and preventing odor. How to make your own natural deodorant that works
Why wheatgrass juice in this natural deodorant
Chlorophyll in wheatgrass (here) makes this a TOP NOTCH DEODORANT. Chlorophyll is a great neutralizer. It has a very calming effect. Pure baking soda can easily irritate the skin, but adding both the coconut oil and the Chlorophyll helps prevent the irritation caused by baking soda.
This natural deodorant has maximum efficiency and long lasting. It leaves no stains on clothes.
1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup arrowroot powder
5-6 Tbsp Coconut oil
Mix baking soda, coconut oil, and arrowroot powder together until it gets a firm texture. Mix in essential oils and wheatgrass juice. Transfer to a container (with lid) and store in the fridge.
