A Healthier Deodorant

A Healthier Deodorant

November 29, 2010 |  by  |  Products

There is a lot of convoluted information out there about antiperspirant and the dangers of aluminum. Aluminum has been linked to Alzheimers Disease and Breast Cancer, that is of course, disputed  by the powers that be. My take is, if there is even a slight chance it is a contributor to either of those, I’m steering clear.

I’ve tried quite a few natural deodorants, including the crystal, which really didn’t work for me. After wetting the rock and then rub, rub, rub, and rubbing some more, I had to find a quicker fix.  I started making my own a few years…

We hopped in the car over the weekend with no real destination in mind besides “North.” I did want to stop by Nature’s Touch Nursery and Harvest in Templeton, so I guess I actually had one destination. We thought we would head over to the coast and possibly Big Sur after that.

Those who know me, know I am a huge fan of anything coconut, especially coconut milk. So, when I ran across this coconut milk at the health food store I was very excited. It’s a bit pricey ($4.99 Lassen’s Whole Foods) so, I will probably not be buying it all too often. I went with the vanilla flavored and it really is soooo delicious.
