1. Your smell changes
Something that admittedly doesn’t sound too great but happens, is the fact your body odour smell changes when using natural deodorant. Due to the fact your body no longer absorbs the toxins and chemicals other conventional deodorant are made up from. The smell of your body odour ends up changing slightly, this is your natural scent and is very normal.
2. It smells different
You are no doubt used to the powdery, floral smell of deodorants and antiperspirant. Natural deodorants have a different smell enterally due to the ingredients. With the botanical and essential oils there will be a more natural smell similar to the type of fragrances you notice in spas etc.
3. No bad stuff
Unlike other conventional deodorants that contain a number of toxins and chemicals which have been linked to the cause of diseases, such as breast cancer. Due to the fact these are absorbed into the skin and into your lymph nodes. Luckily the ingredients of natural deodorant are botanical and full of essential oils that nourish and tend to the skin in a more gentle and therefore natural way. Without any added toxins being absorbed into the armpits.
4. It still works
It is widely thought that natural deodorants don’t work as well as other products. People either end up using too much of the product or even mix it with other deodorants and antiperspirants. In all honesty, the results you get from using a natural deodorant is so impressive you won’t need to worry about it not working, it does an amazing job without all the extra chemicals and toxins!
5. Works better over time
Once you have had your armpit detox and have been using your natural deodorant for a number of weeks, you will notice that the amount of the product you use will become less. This is due to the fact it begins to work more effectively the more you use it and as time goes on. Some users have even been known to say they can go a day without applying it at all. With your skin being able to breath and have the benefits of using an natural product the balance in your body and skin means you can even give deodorant a miss for the day!
6. Post shaving sensitivity
Much like other deodorants, after shaving or waxing your underarms you may experience some skin sensitivity and maybe a slight rash if you apply the deodorant very soon after shaving. This is due to the bicarbonate of soda reacting with the sensitivity you experience after shaving. It is best to hold off applying the product until about 10 minutes afterwards. This will give your skin a chance to calm down after shaving and absorb the deodorant without any tingling!
7. Follow the instructions
Natural deodorants are very different to conventional deodorants, and they also vary depending on which brand you are using.
