Let it all sweat out . . . .

Sweating is good for us.

It is the way our body regulates it's temperature.   Equally important, it is one of the ways we eliminate toxins from our body. 

Today's modern society bombards us with choices of deodorants and antiperspirants (the ones that clog your pores and stop you sweating) both of which are not necessarily good for us long term, based on the extended ingredients lists you will find of chemical names you can't even pronounce, let alone know what they are or do.

So, why not try a natural, completely chemical free version?

A DIY option of your own.

---------------------All you need are 3 simple ingredients;-------------------

Coconut oil

Bicarbonate of soda

Essential oil     

TIPchoose one with anti-bacterial / anti fungal properties, tea tree, lemongrass, orange ....

Mix equal parts coconut oil and bicarb together to form a paste, then add a few drops of essential oil.  Smell, add a few more drops if you wish.


That's all you have to do.  Place the mixture in a suitable storage container and just scoop a pea size amount out with your finger and rub into your pits to use.

There are many variations on-line, this is the simplest I have found and I can definitely confirm, - It really, really works (or tell me I smell !). 

It may take a week or two for your body to de-tox from the shop bought stuff and you may experience some odour. This is only temporary, as is for some, a lot more sweating at first.  The sweating will reduce to a minimum in time.        And sweat is good, remember.

TIP: If you are overly sensitive, the bicarb may irritate - simply add more coconut oil than bicarb to assist.  

Live strong and prosper, with healthy alternatives in life.
