My posts are normally short and sweet but I’m very passionate about this subject and was so happy to find a deodorant that was 100% natural. If you’ve been keeping up with Kim and Kourtney Take Miami, then you may have noticed Kourtney’s holistic lifestyle, which her family has had to learn to adjust to. In one of the episodes Scott and Khloe are trying to get Kourtney to wear some deodorant. The problem is Kourtney won’t wear deodorant because they are all filled with chemicals that when absorbed go through your lymph nodes and into your breasts. Because she is breast feeding she doesn’t want any of that stuff going into her newborns system.
When I saw that episode I was like, HALLELUJIA sista! I could relate! even though im not breast feeding anyone, I always struggle looking for good natural deodorants. GNC and Vitamin Shoppe only have a couple to choose from. I tried a roll on that just didn’t feel pleasant putting on and didn’t work so well either. You can imagine how happy I was when I saw this at Sephora.
While I am not breast feeding anyone my reasons were similar. Deodorants nowadays can be linked to breast cancer in women and I am one of the thousands of Americans who does not have medical insurance! So in other words, AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT! I never go to the doctor. I never get vaccines. And you know what? I’m totally cool with it. I hardly get sick but when I do I let my body heal itself they way it was designed to.
Anyways this deodorant is called, The Healthy Deodorant from Lavinia Laboratories and I got the pure vanilla. It was $10 at Sephora.
