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).
This article will show you how to make your own castile soap bars. Buying natural or organic soap is very expensive today and unfortunately the healthy choice has become the expensive choice. And even if you are willing to pay the price for seemingly “natural products”, you will often find a long list of chemicals (non-natural additives) on the ingredient label on the back and think “what on earth is all this?”
I will advise you to never buy a product only judging from its name, because names these days are very deceptive (e.g. “herbal essence” which not only contains lots chemicals such as the carcinogen 1, 4-dioxane, which is known to cause cancer, but they also test on animals) and there is far between real natural products without chemicals inside.
This is what inspired me to make my own soap, deodorant, toothpaste, and cream. I simply couldn’t find products without chemicals – or rather I found very few (such as Miessence) but they are very expensive.
