Deodorant

Many of us use deodorant to prevent unpleasant smell when we perspire. I was guilty of that few years back. Then I realized how the ingredients inside commercial deodorants would create havoc in the hormonal, lymphatic, immune, and other body systems sooner or later. Some of the common ingredients found in the commercial deodorants are:

  1. Aluminium. It has been linked to breast cancer in women and increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
  2. Propylene glycol. It is a petroleum-based material and it has slick consistency. Studies have shown that it can cause damage to the central nervous system, liver and heart in large quantities.
  3. Parabens. It can disrupts our delicate hormonal system. Paraben exposure has also been linked to birth defects and organ toxicity.
  4. Phthalates.  High phthalate blood and urine levels in women of child bearing age have been linked to a higher risk of birth defects. This suggests that phthalates may disrupt hormone receptors as well as increase the likelihood of cell mutation.
  5. Triclosan. It is utilized as the odor killing part of antiperspirants for its anti-bacterial properties. It is also commonly used in antibacterial wipes, soaps, and hand gels. It is actually classified as a pesticide by the FDA and also classified as a probable carcinogen by the Environmental Protection Agency.

I have stopped using commercial deodorants few years back. I turn to Young Living deodorants and essential oils.

Here are few examples of YL products which you can use as deodorant.

My favorite is Lemon Essential Oil or Lime Essential Oil. I like the smell of Lime best. It’s refreshing and relaxing. It makes me calm and happy.
Beside great aromatherapy effect on my brain and hormone, Lime is good to support healthy immune system as well as skin health. Citrus oils are also known to whiten the skin. The precaution is not to expose the skin under the sun minimally 12 hours upon application. Well, under arm is not going to be exposed anyway. At least, mine is not.
I notice a whitening effect after 1-2 months usage. It’s a great bonus as I initially only wanted to have pleasant smell. All in all, all benefits in one bottle.
Thing to note though, under arm has many lymph nodes and it could be limesensitive to some. If you are thinking to use essential oils directly, do prepare carrier oils nearby in the case sensitivity occurs (read this for safety usage of YLEOs).
