Natural Deodorant

This recipe truly works and was made for my husband who found other natural deodorants didn't last all day or keep up to his active lifestyle. Antiperspirants are classified as an over the counter drug in Canada and the United States, if you have been using one, your body will likely depend on it. 

Things to know about our deodorant:

  • NO Baking Soda, while harmless to most some find it quite irritating
  • NO Aluminum
  • Natural ECOCERT preservative.
  • Vegan Friendly
  • Eco Friendly
  • Non-staining
  • Non-greasy

To detox (2-4 week period):

Week 1: You may not notice much of a change, this is because antiperspirants plug your pores to keep the wetness and sweating at bay. Icky.

Week 2: By now you'll have noticed some foul odor and likely the wetness, don't let this scare you. This is your body's natural response to flushing the toxins.

Week 3: The culture of bacteria will begin to subside and stop odor producing bacteria. The diatomaceous earth and arrowroot powder in our deodorant will help to absorb that wetness.

Week 4: Your body should be fully adjusted, for some you may find this process quicker. Continue using your natural deodorant daily to neutralize body odor.

Shampoo & Conditioner Bars

Shampoos containing SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) are designed to eliminate product build-up through the use of harsh chemical cleaners. These shampoos also strip the natural oils from your hair. To detox your hair we need to rid the build up from silicones and waxes on the hair follicles.

Things to know about our shampoo bars:

  • NO Sulfates
  • NO Silicones
  • Eco Friendly
  • Readily Biodegradable

To detox (2-4 week period):

Start by phasing out your current shampoo over several weeks. If you wash everyday, start washing every other day. Once you get to a point where you can shampoo every three days, you can introduce your natural shampoo. Keep in mind natural shampoo does not lather like a sulfate shampoo, this does not mean your hair is not getting clean. 

If you notice by weeks 2-3 that your hair is not happy, consider the products you use on your hair as well that contain chemicals and silicones. 

Tips:

  • Apple cider vinegar rinse to restore your hair and scalp to it's natural pH. Mix water and apple cider vinegar at a 4:1 ratio. Let mixture sit on hair for up to 10 minutes, comb through and rinse. Repeat once a week as needed.
  • Brushing your hair frequently will help distribute the oils from your scalp down to the ends during the detox period.
