Here in America, our culture does not naturally embrace our “natural smell” like others. We label it as “body odor”, which has a negative connotation. Some people’s natural body odor is pleasant to us. They’re called pheromones. No one wants to smell unpleasant, which is why some are hesitant to try a natural deodorant. However, studies have revealed that the aluminum in antiperspirants perpetuate cancer and other chronic illnesses. Americans are beginning to switch to aluminum free deodorant. The switching might be difficult for some. Aluminum free deodorant can work for all body chemistries. If you find that natural deodorant isn’t working for you, there are steps you can take to help make the switch easier.
You’ve Made The Choice
Somethings work best when you drop them cold turkey, some don’t. Making the switch to aluminum regular use of conventional deodorants and antiperspirants can change the bacterial microbiome in your armpits, causing an overproduction of bad bacteria which give a worse odor when you stop using them. Some may have to prepare their body before switching to aluminum free deodorant. If you’ve tried to “Just switch” and you smelled terrible at the end of the day. Consider all the factors before going back to antiperspirant.
Try an underarm detox.
How To Detox
*If you feel pain after application, you should rinse off the mask immediately, although it’s more likely you will experience a tingling or warm sensation as blood flow to the area increases – this is normal.

Introducing chemicals to the body can lead to side effects. The human body is a perfect ecosystem. Adding things that don’t belong upsets a perfect balance. Your body will tell you when it’s time to take a break and detox.
