30 Bananas a Day!

Hiya :)

 

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???

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.

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.

I don't use deodorant. If you work out and shower consistently, and eat clean 811rv, you shouldn't need it. 

I use nothing! Woo!

Shaving less may help the bumps...

I hardly shave...

cool, now I have not thought of that...I do use lemon sometimes on special occasions.

You can try shaving with coconut oil and see if that helps with any sort of razor burn/bumps you may have. When I do shave, that's what I use.

As far as deodorants go, I usually don't wear anything. I have found that when I am maintaining a completely raw diet, I don't smell like anything foul and I much like my natural odor, but when I am around others who may not feel the same way, I wear deodorant that does not contain any aluminum or any of that other junk.

Hope this helped some :)

I haven't used deodorant for a few years now..... I just wash with water if I need.

From a man's point of view - I believe that the main reasoning to this is body hair, as the perspiration dry's on the hair - besides the potential obvious if one carries excess body fat (excess bf being a common cause of excessive perspiration - unless they medically have over active glands or something..), or even drugs, etc. I do trim so, I think this is the reason why I keep so "fresh" I suppose. Plus I have very low BF and keep healthy.

 

It is nteresting to read all of the alternatives, advice and experiences though.

exfoliate under your arms or use a scrubby because this area is always protected

adding coconut oil helps with both under arm pimples & odour because its anti bacterial 

you can also shave using coconut oil 

hope this helps

I use "salt of the earth spray" You can get it online at holland and Barrett :)
