It all started with my armpits.
One day, after having my two children, I realized that my armpits had changed a lot with breastfeeding. They had gotten much darker and now I had a bunch of pimples around me that, while not itchy, didn't feel good. I like to wear sleeveless shirts and t-shirts band-aids, and I didn't feel comfortable wearing them anymore, with my armpits like that. Also, my regular deodorant was no longer helping me control body odor.
Doing some reading, I realized that the constant use of commercial deodorants causes the skin of the armpits to darken, due to the aluminum, antiperspirant agents and synthetic fragrances, which these products carry, accumulate in the axillary gland and cause this darkening, as well as pimples and an increase in bad odor, this is because the body naturally tries to detoxify the gland.
Also, I learned that the armpit's job is to sweat and help remove harmful toxins from the body, so using an antiperspirant prevents the body from staying clean and flowing.
I looked for more information and found several recipes to make natural deodorants for myself, which would allow me to detoxify my armpits. They were all so varied and different that I didn't know where to begin. So I decided to try several that took the supplies that I had on hand, or that were easy to get.
