Why Your Natural Deodorant Stopped Working

by - 11/12/2019

So you started wearing natural deodorant,
you found the perfect one that works for you
and for the last week your pits have been FUNKY!

What changed?!

This happens. It is alright. It is natural.

There are a few things that may be going on.

1. That brand just doesn't work for you anymore right now. 
Your body has changed and it just doesn't cut it.
Go back to the drawing board and find another brand.

2. You may have changed something in your diet which is impacting your body odor.
Reduce processed foods, junk foods and sugary foods - these can cause body odor.
Focus on greens, fruits, and alkalizing foods.

3. You may be stressing right now, which causes a smellier sweat than exercise sweat.
Do your best to minimize your stress -
(if you want help with this please feel free to message me - I offer personal coaching to reduce your stress by looking at it from a holistic point of view (food, mind, and body))

4. There may be some bacteria in your armpits that are just not jiving with your deodorant.
Mix 1 part water + 1 part apple cider vinegar and wipe your armpits 
before applying your natural deodorant.

As you can see, it isn't the deodorant that is the problem.
Natural deodorant works.
It just isn't working well with your body right now.

And that is NORMAL!
Your body is constantly changing.

This is something I am currently experiencing right now.
The brand I have been using for the past year hasn't been holding up well recently.
So I have bought a few other brands and have been giving them a try.

I still use the original brand that I love so much, but I know better than 
to put it on in the morning and think I will still smell good when I go to workout at night.

Keep in mind - with natural deodorant it is common to have to reapply during the day.

Be patient with your body and be proud you are taking a step in the right direction 
of taking care of your health and reducing the amount of chemicals you are putting into your body.

Remember - health is inclusive of the foods you are eating, 
the products you are using, the thoughts you are thinking, and more!
