Hi friends! I am passionate about teaching others how to live a chemical free life, and as a wellness coach I want to share something with you that so many people have no idea about, because we are getting scammed by big companies and “natural” stores. This is the exact reason why I only use Young Living deodorant!
This morning I shared a few quick videos over on my Instagram stories and I’ve had a lot of people asking more detailed questions, so I felt like a blog post was a better idea.
The details I’m about to share with you are probably going to blow your mind, so prepare yourselves.
I hate to break it to you, but marketing teams across the globe are straight up deceiving us. They are! Here’s why: when a company’s marketing team advertises something as “natural”, its usually far from that. Its a whole bunch of “natural” chemicals and toxins, honestly. Just because they use words like natural, does not mean it’s okay for you. You must read the labels in detail!
Let me break it down for you.
Why I will ONLY use Young Living deodorant
Okay, I want you to go grab the deodorant you use every day. Got it?
Now, flip it over and look at the label. What’s the first ingredient listed? What’t the main active ingredient?
I’ll bet you it is: Aluminum Zirconium Trichlorohydrex.
Can you pronounce that? Do you know what that is? What it does?
I’ll help you out, or you can hop over to Google and read whatever sources you would like. 😉
Aluminum Zirconium Trichlorohydrex is an aluminum compound found in almost any deodorant you find on the shelves in stores, and even in some out of store companies who claim they are focused on all natural products. I have been researching and looking up almost every ingredient label of deodorant known to man, and probably more than 90% of them contained this.
This aluminum is the active ingredient because it stops us from sweating. Some people may be thinking, “but that’s exactly why I use deodorant”. And that’s not true, because an actual deodorant just keeps your sweat from smelling like body odor. Antiperspirants prevent you from sweating at all.
And how to they stop you from sweating? Well, that handy dandy aluminum just goes right into your pores and sweat glands, clogs them up, and blocks you from sweating.
Now, something I want to point out is: you need to sweat. Our bodies were designed to sweat to eliminate waste and toxins. There are 4 ways your body does this: waste (#1 and #2), sweat, and tears. Those are the only ways your body can flush out harmful toxins. So when you stop your sweat glands from being able to sweat, that’s a lot of toxic build up.
When those toxins build up, they have to have a home. And that would be your organs like your liver, heart, blood stream, spinal cord, and brain.
I’m sure you have done your research by now, but in case you haven’t, those toxic aluminum compounds can cause horrible damage on your body. First being oxidative stress which can damage our DNA and add age to our cells. It also puts you at risk for imbalanced hormone release, which will increase breast and prostate cancer risks, Alzheimer’s Disease, central nervous system failure, and more. Among those, the littler side effects you may be experiencing every day are things like brain fog, migraines, and often infertility or other reproductive problems.
Not only this, the aluminum compounds deplete the natural minerals we need in our bodies for normal cell health and proper brain functions. (And since there are so many other free radicals entering our systems that are hard to control, I take a supplement of all natural core mineral complex, called Mineral Essence.)
Don’t stop there. Take a look at all the other ingredients. Those are more chemicals that are harming your body. Also, see that warning about ingesting? I get that you would never want to eat deodorant, but if its such a poison that Poison Control Center needs to be called, why would you put this on your skin? What makes it okay?
So think about that for a minute.
We stopped using the antiperspirants found in stores a long time ago, when I made the switch to a chemical free lifestyle with Young Living.
Take a look at this product label on my deodorant from Young Living. No chemicals. No aluminum. No propalyne glycol. No fragrances. No dyes. No synthetic materials. All natural.
See that? I love this part, look at the first ingredient listed. Coconut oil. Yes! Then Beeswax. Yes again! The rest? 100% pure, high quality essential oils from Young Living.
I know what you’re thinking: it probably stinks. It doesn’t at all! It’s a light, fresh floral scent. There’s also another option of a more manly scent too! And besides, after the facts you just learned, why would you be concerned about it smelling like the others that could possible kill you?
I love this stuff you guys!
Not only does it keep you from putting those nasty products in your body, but when you use this, the essential oils go into your body and helps draw the toxins out! When you look up benefits of Young Living essential oils, and see the different uses and benefits of them, you are getting that by using this deodorant too!
I had no idea the health and wellness industry could be so misleading until I dug a little deeper and did my research. Now I’m floored at how these people still have jobs!
Please, please, always read your labels! This goes for any thing you are using in your home, on your body, and especially on your kids. We are filling ourselves with thousands of chemicals everyday, but with some awareness, you can choose what to use and what to avoid. Be smart with your consumables! 🙂
