Aluminum found in deodorant has been linked to all kinds of issues like Alzheimer’s, cancers and more. Quite scary side effects for a product most of us use everyday (sometimes more). In the USA, it is considered taboo to have stinky pits. Believe me, nobody wants to sit next the the stinky dude on the subway, airplane or even on the bus stop bench. We view stinky as gross. This is why we rely so much on deodorant, fragrances and more to keep us smelling fresh and accepted.
So, the dilemma is there…
What can you do about the aluminum found in deodorant but also not be ‘that stinky guy’ that everyone is avoiding because they can’t breath your nasty odor?
I have thought about using natural deodorant a dozen times. My aunt convinced my mom to start using it after she was diagnosed with cancer. My mom has been using it ever since. I was just a kid when she started using it, and I have never thought she was a stinky-hippie. Actually, I have never noticed her odor at all. In fact, for those who think it might not work as well as standard stuff, you can be reassured that ingredients like sage oil, lemon, citrus and rose are very effective at masking body odor from sweating.
So why have I still not tried it? A few things. I felt it was not as easy to get natural as it was to get the aluminum-filled stuff they sell on the grocery shelves. You have to go out of your way to get it at one of those expensive natural stores, right? Nope, there are plenty of aluminum free brands at everyday drugstores. OH.
Okay, the last thing stopping me from ever trying them was that they have got to be expensive, right? Again, I was wrong…not exactly expensive. While some aluminum-free natural deodorants cost up to $30, others are available for $5 or less. Fine, I had no excuses left. Nothing should be stopping me from making a healthy decision.
I decided to test out Truly’s natural deodorant and if I liked it, I would never be able to make an excuse again. Truly’s is easily accessible and not outrageously priced. You can get a 2 oz. jar for $7.99 or try a variety of their natural scents in a sample pack for $10. They can be easily purchased online. The price was reasonable, and I knew if I liked them, I wouldn’t mind paying that price for future natural products.
So I tested Truly’s. At first, I found it a little unusual to use deodorant from a jar, but embraced it as part of the natural deodorant ways. The cream is easy to apply, and smells fresh and coconut-y. I was able to enjoy my typical normal lifestyle without having to question my stink level. I felt the solution prevented odor and worked in a similar manner as my other stick type.
