Happy Valentine’s Day friends! I hope you’re having a great Tuesday & remembering the importance of LOVE today in all aspects of your life.
Today is also my Great Aunt Rita’s 93rd birthday — she is a true definition of love as she does so much for others and is just a light in our lives.
This is one of my favorite pictures of all of us from our Wedding this past summer where Aunt Rita led us in a “Mambo Number 5” dance that was truly unforgettable. #RockinRita
Now that we’ve got our hands in the air — let’s chat about armpit lovin’ like we just don’t care ;] (see what I did there?…I’ll stick to my day job).
Today I’m partnering up with my friends from EO Products to not only bring you a GIVEAWAY from V-Day but to chat about the all-natural approach to deodorant.
For years I didn’t realize how important it really is to think about the things we put ON our bodies as opposed to toxins & chemicals. I am not perfect by any means but I do try to take small steps to lessen the amount in our home, food, & on my body by choosing products that are free from them.
I actually stumbled upon EO Products in Whole Foods a few years back as I was looking for a spray deodorant to have in my gym bag to freshen up between clients or classes. Naturally when they asked to partner up I was pumped as I was already a fan!
Some things I’ve learned along the way were that most mainstream deodorants have ingredients like phthalates or aluminum if you read the label closely & in turn, you are putting that onto your underarms daily — which is connected to sensitive areas/lymph nodes on your body.
Trust me – like I said, I’m not perfect (nor do I ever want to be, ha!) but when you really start to think about small changes you can make to take care of yourself — something simple like a deodorant swap could be step 1!
I was JUST chatting with my client Mary the other day about natural deodorants as she was reading her label on the one she used and truly wanted to make a switch.
I love the smell of the EO products and love even more that they are scented with essential oils as I am a huge fan of oils.
*One tip I have is that if you JUST shaved your armpits — spraying on the EO Deodorant directly after may sting for like a hot second but then it totally subsides.
The slight sting comes from Organic Ethanol that stops odor-causing bacteria at its source and I’ve never felt anything if I haven’t just shaved — just smelt the good smells ;]
EO states that “when we’re active, our bodies sweat to cool us down and help to release toxins. Being mindful of how often you’re active will help speed up the detox process. Natural deodorants work to control body odor, not to stop your body’s natural functions. Remember, sweat is a good thing!”
Body odor can be affected by stress, hormones, diet, and exercise.
Natural Deodorant Transition
Many have tried to switch to natural deodorant but gave up because of unflattering, stubborn body odor. What they may not realize is that there is a transition period where body odor increases as our bodies release the buildup of toxins that can occur with regular use of conventional antiperspirants and deodorants.
EO Products developed the 30 Day Deodorant Detox to help you make the switch without the stink!
They even developed a fun calendar to keep track of the transition!
