Did I Really Stop Wearing Deodorant?

First step along my journey to using more natural products…deodorant.

For the longest time, I have had THE biggest issue with aluminum filled deodorant, which honestly was a feeling that I had before this rabbit-hole-of-a natural beauty path. After looking into the research, I haven’t come across any evidence that shows aluminum to be cancer-causing. I don’t want to say that it bothers me, but it does. How can applying metal into a porous part of your body not negatively affect you?!?!

Quite frankly, I don’t like the idea of it. And I mistrust the research to conclude that it is safe for our bodies.

At first, I tried making my own coconut oil/corn starch/essential oil deodorant, but I didn’t love the feeling of that and it didn’t even really “work.”

So…one day I just stopped wearing deodorant altogether.

At first it felt strange, skin touching skin all day…ew. But then I got used to the feeling sans deodorant, and it wasn’t all that bad.

You are going to mistrust the following statement; but I don’t even feel as if I smell bad without it, my B.O. almost smells sweet….

I know I sound cray to the cray-but I think one less product to buy makes my wallet and body happier, so I am sticking to it.

If you feel as if my decision is too radical for you, DM me for some Paige-approved suggestions!
