Do you stink? Going toxin free for your personal care items is important. Especially if you have a weakened or impaired immune system and/or are serious about your detoxification. Some people know that their deodorant probably contains aluminum and other toxins but don't read the label. 'What I don't know won't hurt me' syndrome. There's another way, a healthier way.
I was told about Dom deodorant from one of my instructors at CSNN. It is made on Saltspring Island and you can buy it at Pomme Natural in Nanaimo. It's base is certified organic virgin cold-pressed coconut oil (anti-bacterial), pure, unrefined baking soda (helps neutralize odor and absorb moisture) and natural arrowroot powder (helps absorb moisture).It's not cheap, though. It costs $17.99, but the jar will last you for up to 6 months (depending on the season). It lasts so long that you forget how much it costs when you go back to get more, so that's a good thing. I prefer the green one which is lemongrass, cedar and tea tree oils. The yellow one is citrus fruits which is good but didn't hold up as well for my body chemistry.

Anyway, I ran out of my Dom's deodorant and couldn't get to Pomme Natural to buy more so I opted for The Green Beaver Company's Natural Deodorant which costs around $7. I didn't realize that for my body chemistry and summer kicking in that I would actually smell worse than a beaver. Perhaps because my body chemistry needs something stronger than citrus scented. I'm not slagging this brand just a head's up to those who want an awesome natural, toxin-free, deodorant, try DOM's first.
