Switching to a natural deodorant for the first time?

If you are switching from an anti perspirant to a natural deodorant one of the main differences in ingredients is that a natural deodorant will not contain aluminium. Aluminium actually prevents you from sweating and so by eliminating this you will feel slightly different at first. You may feel sweatier than usual or slightly sticky leading you to believe that your natural deodorant isn't working. This isn't the case, your under arms are detoxing and there is a period of change to get through as you detox. Here are a few tips to help you to stick with it. Its definitely worth it. The result will be peace of mind knowing you smell great naturally, without needing chemicals. 

Why Is There A Detox Period? 

When you first make the switch to a natural deodorant your body will start releasing excess bacteria and toxins which have built up over the years. This means your new natural deodorant will be working extra hard to keep up. Be prepared that the toxins and old aluminium you are sweating out ,ay not smell nice but its part of the detox process and it wont last forever.

How Long Is The Detox Period?

This varies for everyone, you can expect a 2 to 4 week transition period when switching from antiperspirant to a natural deodorant. I prepared myself for the worse case scenario but it wasn't necessary, my detox period lasted one and a half weeks maximum and I had been using an anti perspirant since my teens. 

Will I Be Smelly? 

When you switch to a natural deodorant you are removing the ‘block’ and will start releasing all of the toxins, waste, bacteria and some aluminium which has built up. Yes, this you may find that this can be smelly, don't worry this isn't your normal aroma and it will get better.

Tips to get through the detox period?

I would recommend being prepared that you may need to shower more often or perhaps give yourself a rinse and reapply your natural deodorant throughout the day. 

Choose the right clothes

Wear loose clothing for those first couple of weeks. Choose natural, breathable fabrics such as cotton and linen. Synthetic or restrictive clothing can trap moisture and make you feel more uncomfortable. I particularly avoided wearing tight clothing around my underarms.

What is Detox-a-pit?

Earth Purities Detox-a-pit is a natural formula created to magnetically draw out toxins and impurities and help restore your PH levels. It can be used whether you currently using a natural deodorant or not. You could use it as a tool to help in the detox period. Directions for use are: Apply and leave it on for 10 minutes a day for 7 days. Use it prior to bathing. You will notice a strong smell of apple cider vinegar.
