NaturalNews) If you’re like me, you have tried many natural deodorants. Many of them that claim to be natural are not natural and/or are not healthy. Most of them do not work. In fact, I’ve only come across a few that worked well, and they didn’t last very long.
These days I don’t need it. The healthier I eat, the less body order I have. In fact, if I do stink, I know exactly what I ate to cause it. A healthy body with a balanced inner eco-system (a healthy gut) doesn’t exude a foul body odor.
On the other hand, nobody’s perfect. It’s good to have deodorant for the day that follows a night on the town, one with a few drinks, a restaurant, etc.
The best deodorant I ever used, I made at home. It still doesn’t last too terribly long; for me, it works for about 4 hours. But it’s certainly my favorite, out of the many I’ve tried.
