This is definately an off topic conversation.
Just wanting to be more o-natural and thought I'd see what all of the 811ers use for deodorant?
I'm wanting something more natural.
Also, When I shave, I ALWAYS get little pimples under my arms that look and feel gross...anyone have any advice???
Yay for another hairy lady! Maybe we should have a group for unshaved women. :D haha (i just joined and am going bonkers over how many groups i just joined!)
Most other people don't have a very good sense of smell so you can smell a bit and be fine. I am around people who absolutely reek all the time, and no one seems to notice. In fact, I can smell the layers of their smell. The perfumed products they wear, including deodorant, and then the body odor beneath it.
To answer your question more simply, I am not fully raw and I find that the most important things not to consume in order to smell fine are: 1) Meat and dairy, 2) Garlic, 3) Onions. I think it took me a couple months initially to stop being so smelly, but I don't remember exactly. If I eat a lot of onions, I'll smell the next day, but the following day I'll be fine.
no need to shave ur armpits or legs or whatever there's so little hair usually anyway. we've kind diverged from other animals in that respect, why not leave the little hair that we have left?
Yeah, here's to hair! I don't like the feeling of stubble and the time and expense of shaving. If my husband shaves around his mouth, then I won't let him kiss me unless he is freshly shaved because otherwise, I get bad stubble burn. Luckily, he keeps a goatee or a beard most of the time.
I find that the best 'shave cream' for my legs and pits is coconut oil. It leaves my skin super moist and shiny. I love having that shiny leg look :)
I don't where deodorant as I don't feel I need it. But I think Alum stone is a good natural deodorant it's like a rock you wet and rub on your underarms. It is often packaged and sold as deodorant in health food stores etc.
My husband uses this and likes it o.k. I think it helps with the smell. He would prefer an anti-perspirant, but those things are super-toxic.
Sugaring!! Its like waxing but not really its amazing and saved my life.Look up homemade vegan sugaring. As for deodarant well I'll be honest I don't really use any I always have a nice shower after a workout and I find that when I stay hydrated (clear urine) I barely sweat and I don't even think my body odour smells bad, its seems to have a sweet odour to it now. Maybe my sweet smelling sweat is related to all the fruits lol
Okay...so I am very new here, but long before we changed our diets my husband and I got rid of cleaning supplies and body products. I don't use deodorant of any kind very often. But sometimes you just want to make sure you don't smell bad. For those cases I make my own deodorant.
Mix water with some cornstarch and then add a little baking soda to it. How much you make is based on how large your bottle is. I always have way more than what fits in my little spray bottle. I usually start with 1/2 cup of water and add a teaspoon of cornstarch and 1/2 a teaspoon of baking soda and then a little more cornstarch to help thicken it up a little. Add a few drops of tea tree oil and any essential oils that you want for a pleasant smell (it's a good idea to know that your essential oil of choice is safe). Mix well. Put it in a spray bottle. Shake before using and away you go.
