It’s obvious that you wouldn’t want to swallow a spoonful of toxic cosmetic ingredients. But what many may not know is that smearing them under your arms in the form of deodorant or antiperspirant may be even worse.1
When looking for deodorant alternatives there are 3 common ingredients you should absolutely avoid:
Finding a healthy and chemical free alternative to deodorant that actually works can be tough. But there are plenty of simple and clean options that can do the job just as well, if not better than commercial deodorant sticks.
Tea tree oil is an essential oil that can be used for several purposes and makes for a great alternative to traditional deodorant. You might be surprised to learn that sweat itself does not actually smell. However, when secretions from your sweat glands combine with bacteria on your skin, a moderate to strong odor is produced. Tea tree oil’s bacteria-fighting properties help control underarm odor related to perspiration making it an ideal natural alternative to commercial deodorants and antiperspirants.8
Tea tree oil contains a number of compounds, including terpinen-4-ol, that have been shown to kill certain bacteria, viruses and fungi.5,6 Terpinen-4-ol also appears to increase the activity of your white blood cells, which help fight germs and other foreign invaders.7 These germ-fighting properties make tea tree oil a valued natural remedy for treating bacterial and fungal skin conditions, preventing infection and promoting healing.
Our Tea Tree Essential Oil Roll-on makes applying this oil as a deodorant easier than ever. Simply apply the roll-on directly to the underarms to deodorize and refresh. The roll-on is pre-diluted with fractionated coconut oil to 50% so it can be applied directly to the skin while still being strong enough to destroy the bacteria on your skin that causes body odor.
