The topic of natural deodorant is nothing new to Velvet’s Edge. The debate on the effects of aluminum (found in most regular anti perspirants) is real, yet it is still somewhat hard to fathom that such a toxic chemical wouldn’t be absorbed by our bodies when placed on our biggest organ (our skin) every single day. It is especially concerning for women who shave their armpits and may have an occasional nick or wound.
Yet even still, with all of that said, deodorant seems like a necessity, especially if you don’t want to smell and still the biggest complaint about natural deodorant is that one may work for a month or two, but then it just didn’t anymore.
After trying almost EVERY natural deodorant made to man, I accidentally stumbled Poetic Pits Underarm Charm, by Living Libations and feel like I may have finally found the solution to the pit problem. Poetic Pits is different in that it’s and oil made with the purest essential oils that work to balance the bacteria that causes the body odor smell when you sweat. So while it will not stop you from sweating, it will help balance any odor that your body may produce from that. Before you stress too hard about the sweat, remember that sweating is good for our bodies. It is how your body cools itself down and releases toxins – so actually your deodorant shouldn’t prevent you from sweating like an aluminum filled anti-perspirant.
