Why The Natural Bandwagon?
When I teach classes on detoxing your lifestyle, the very first product I emphasize to ditch and switch in your home is your dryer sheets (get that info here). And for your personal care products? Believe it or not, it's your deodorant! Why would that be? Here is a quick breakdown of industry-standard ingredients:
Yikes! So you can see why it's super important to get that yuck away from your lymphatic system. Our solution to keep this yucky stuff far away is to make our own! It's easy, saves us lots of money, and most importantly of all it works.
Did you even know you had lymph nodes in your pits?!? If you want to deep dive nerd out on lymphatic health including deodorant importance (and breast health ladies), check out this Boobies 101 lesson!
Maybe you have tried switching, be honest, how did it go?
What, there is a natural one that doesn't... suck?
Yep, I said it. Let's get just that right out of the way. As a person who has used a heap of different brands, styles, and flavored pit concoctions, I can say with confidence many are terrible (yep, full Michael Scott sad face bad). Or rather, maybe the experience switching from traditional to natural without a protocol to follow was terrible. Either way, no one wants to be the stinky kid! #AmIRight?
So what are the tricks and secrets to success? I'll tell you.
Step 1, "let them prepare, and if necessary, detox!"
How and Why to Detox
'I tried to switch before Echo and I just ended up being too stinky'. That is the top comment that I hear from people who tried to switch in the past. What makes this full protocol so great is understanding the detoxification process, tackling it, and then moving into rockstar DIY recipes.
Before I unleash all of this awesomeness, two quick lessons learned to save you on your journey...
Wax, Fingers, and Armpits
Two things. 1) Ditch the wax, save it for your lip balm. You will see in my notes why I don't recommend the beeswax magic for this DIY. We will tackle that DIY when we make our own lip balm which is yummy!
2) Embrace your finger in your pit. I know that might sound weird, but you will have a beautiful jar from which you will gather up some of this Unicorn Lymphatic Love (that is my name for it), and rub in. It won't be weird long, you can do it ;)
Even if you haven't done many DIYs in the past, I promise you can handle these. So have no fear, go for it! If it's not quite right it's easy to tweak in the next batch. Seriously, don't sweat it! (see what I did there?)
