I enjoy the shock value of stating "Did you know that I have not worn deodorant for over 20 years?"
Since I heard the words exit my mouth this week, I thought I would bring it up on the blog again.
It was about 1993 when I first heard someone talking about using a SALT CRYSTAL instead of deodorant or antiperspirant. They stated that your body needs to sweat, but the odor is caused when bacteria is present. The salt kills the bacteria. Bingo. I was sold and never looked back.
Twenty years ago a salt crystal 'deordoent' could only be found in specialty stores and looked like ball of salt that fit in the palm of your hand. Now they are readily available at places like Walgreens or CVS and the packaging makes them look like conventional deodorant. Whether using the crude ball of salt or the sleek stick, you simply moisten the salt and apply liberally to your moistened underarms after your shower or bath.
Besides protecting my body from the nasty chemicals, I enjoy knowing that I am protecting my clothes. I used to be annoyed that the film from my deodorant would leave a film on my clothes. And rings.
Our bodies are assaulted with enough toxins everyday without massaging more on to our skin every morning.
By the way, it is a money saver too. One Crystal Stick (above) costs about $6.99 and lasts for months. Unless you drop it on your slate floor.
I started Mother Rabbit Says blog as a place to share my motherly advice for my bunnies who have left the nest... spoonfuls of wisdom that I have heard myself say again and again, which they possibly need to hear again. I love that I now have a bunny following bigger than my three girls and our wonderful blended family. This is fun.
Now I am blogging about our house renovation and Mike's cancer journey too.
