Want to hear something kinda crazy? I haven’t worn deodorant in well over a year! I have tested a few types of non toxic brands, but I mostly just wear… nothing. I know many of you are interested in switching to a non-toxic deodorant brand- but you feel intimated. So I want to help make that process a little easier by sharing some ways to show your pit some love that will help them stay healthy and detox to get all the odor GONE. Because guess what? your armpits don’t just smell bad naturally!
ways to detox your pits
- one of my favorite things lately is DRY BRUSHING! And I never miss out on dry brushing my pits. This is a great way to gently exfoliate.
- use a toner! I use a homemade blend of acv, filtered water, and essential oils. I also love using cocokind rosewater because it is super gentle!
- do an armpit mask! I try to do this weekly, or bi-weekly. I use this clay mask and purchase from amazon- it is amazing for so many uses, cheap, and lasts forever!
- try the takesumi detox kit! Even though I haven’t used deodorant in awhile, I still tried this out and I loved it. More about it below!
about the takesumi detox kit
I have been using this kit for a few weeks- and I love it! It comes with a charcoal detox deodorant, deodorant booster bar, charcoal detox bath, and a detox guide book that walks you through the steps of armpit detox and what to expect. I noticed a few things in using this product, the biggest being that I actually was able to sweat a little bit. I have struggled with an inability to sweat normally all my life. But in using this, I actually sweat a few times, which was GOOD. Not something this product is made for, but I found that interesting that it helped detox my armpits enough to help that happen… pretty amazing. And no odor, at all, ever.
My husband is currently testing this and is detoxing from his conventional deodorant. He has tried natural brands several times and always go back to his conventional brands… ugh. But this is helping him detox properly and he is so excited about the process. He is almost done with the detox phase, and then can be wearing natural stuff from here on out! So we both are loving this kit!
It’s funny how most of us NEVER consider taking care of our armpits. It just never crosses our minds. But once you start to take care of this part of your body, you won’t be able to stop! Have you tried any of these?
