To make an armpit cleanse: add 4 drops of Rosemary and Lavender essential oils and 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to a 2 oz bottle, fill with water. Shake this, spray on both armpits before going to bed, leave it on overnight. Repeat this. You may need to wash your armpits during the first 2-3 days, but your body will respond to the detox after 5 days.
A daily smear of chemicals under your arms that intentionally clog pores is probably a bad idea, but that’s exactly what most people do. They smear a host of chemicals to make themselves smell ‘good’. But the results hardly last all day and may take frequent re-applying depending on the sweat level of the person. Hence, for healthy armpits, free from chemical smear, you need a natural armpit detox.
According to the Breast Cancer Awareness Fund, commercial deodorants contain these ingredients that may cause cancer:
- Triclosan can affect hormones and could be linked to breast cancer.
- Phthalates are endocrine disrupters, which interfere with the body’s hormone function and also are linked to breast cancer, although the studies have only fueled controversy.
- Parabens have been found in breast cancer biopsies and are known to be absorbed into the skin. They also disrupt hormones and mimic natural estrogens, a cause of breast cancer.

You can avoid this by using natural deodorants and create an armpit detox which will help your body get back to its natural state of clean perspiration faster, flush out the old bacteria and chemical residue.

Mos under arm bought deodorants are made from a base of rendered pig fat .. Your body will sweat if it cannot breath ..
I just go au naturel (jaya only once said I stink ) - shower morning and before I go to bed, in case Harish objects too.
I`m trying out a new aluminium free deodrant from Tesco called Biosen. Will let you know if it works!
Same reason why mc Donalds exists.. Because it can! As long as people buy bad things there will be bad things.
This is such crap...the part about a vegan diet contributing to low testosterone....I will unsubscribe to this because it's obvious they get their info from a cereal box. My husband and I have been together for 20 years..both vegan for over 5 years now and I assure you there is no testosterone deficiency...on the contrary actually. Sex life has never been better. Take this false info and shove it where the sun don't shine.
Yes baking soda then lemon juice mixet it and apply i On your underam, before you take a bath! Used it everyday! Then apply rexona as a deodorant if you want to go out! But if inside the house no need! I have a severe problem about my underam smelly and wet! Even during winter and hot it's the same thing! And I'm trying to used lots of deodorant but it'doesnt work! Just only I'm trying to used lemon with baking soda! And it is very very good,to rid off body odor!
Really, and where would one find this research. ????? It is only thought to be a contributing factor as are other chemical, like smoking and alcohol.
That's true Moni Mayorga, not only aluminum but some harmful ingredient as well,that's why it link to cancer. In our family we use the KING OF DETOXIFIER -ganoderma products.... It's purely natural and no harmful ingredients
That's horrible advice , there is a ton of aluminum in deodorant a direct tie to causing Alzheimer's
In B.C., Canada you can get it at London Drugs, Shopper's Drug Store, WalMart and some health food stores.
Cathy Ord I use the crystal rock deodorant. I was skeptical when I first used it, but have been using it now for a few years. Only one I'll buy now. Love it :)
Really has no one read the research on deodorants! !! There is nothing linking deodorant to Cancer. The bacteria that clings to your armpit hairs combined with not washing causes body odour. Wash properly and apply whatever deodorant you want. The key is to wash properly.
No proof sure but my mother recently discovered she gets sharp pain in her breast everytime she wears her usual deodorant, which she's been using for so many years. I don't think it's worth the risk. My smelly armpits only bother other people, not myself lol
You can get this at Walgreen's. My mom swears by it. But I use deodorant. I think I still stink with it.
