Still Not Stinkin' After Almost A Year!

Some of you might remember when I switched over from store-bought antiperspirant to plain ol' baking soda. I did it as kind of an experiment because, in my experience, I had never found a "natural" deodorant to work for me. It has always been important to me to go as natural as possible, within reason. I really had wanted to use something less toxic under my arms than the commercial options, but it is also important for me not to offend you, my friends and patients, especially when I was wanting you to r-e-l-a-x while I was adjusting you. How could you, after all, if I had b.o.?

Well, it will be a year in September that I switched to baking soda only as an underarm deodorant. I can tell you now from experience that it works! I don't stink and my family has not begged me to switch back! I figured that late Spring/early Summer in CA would be a good test, but, let me tell you: Summer in OK definitely puts the baking soda to the challenge. Most of you know by now that I moved here in Early July. I have been here for over a week in sweltering heat with high humidity. Even when working in our new house, with no A/C because we don't have electricity yet, my pits are still odor-free. I am drenched from head-to-toe, but no b.o.!

Look back on my blog in on 11/9/09 if you are interested in the process of switching over. I think it was a good decision for me, and I am happy to decrease my toxic load in one more small way!
