Having read a lot about the side-effects of using antiperspirant – one of them being that antiperspirant is the single biggest cause of breast cancer, I started looking for a antiperspirant free deodorant.
I have used crystal deodorants sometimes, but find that it doesn’t work that well on me.
For the past year I have used my own homemade coconut oil deodorant and it works really well.
Making your own toothpaste is very easy and saves you from having to use chemically produced toothpaste with glycerin and sodium flouride.
Glycerin gives toothpaste a nice creamy texture and coats the teeth for “protection”, but at the same time it also stops re-enamalization which essentially means that cavities can’t self-heal.
Sodium flouride is a by-product of aluminum manufacturing that can also be found in rat poisons and industrial pesticides).
Making washing soda is a very simple process. You basically need to bake “baking soda”.
Tools: An oven, a pan, a heat-proof utensil and the baking soda.
