After a conversation with some friends (Sana primarily), I learned the importance of using “aluminum free” deodorant.
By using regular deodorant (with aluminum), we are blocking the pore on our skin where we get rid of toxins naturally. It is a part of our lymph node system and it is unnatural to block this with regular deodorant. Also most lotions also clog our skins and worse, can allow bad chemicals to enter our blood stream. The skin is the largest organ in our body and it absorbs what it put in contact with.
I use Tom’s of Maine or Herbal Clear as my deodorants of choice. They’re good, cheap (about same price as other deodorants). If you want more info, just google “natural deodorants” or something like that.
