Natural Remedies For Body Odor

There are many benefits for using natural deodorant alternatives. They do not contain harmful chemicals, they use natural ingredients, and they are healthy for your body. Finding the right one for you can be a tricky mainly because they come in many forms other than what you would traditionally think of when you think of deodorants.

The first thing that generally comes to mind when thinking about a natural deodorant are conventional sticks and roll-ons that do not use chemicals such as aluminum, parabens or triclosan. Companies that specialize in these types of products include Burt's Bees, Toms Of Maine and Lavanila.

Chlorophyll supplement products are another wonderful option for body odor control. As we touched on earlier, chlorophyll works internally to absorb odor compounds that cause body odor (and bad breath for that matter). They contain no artificial chemicals and only use ingredients derived from natural plants. A big advantage of chlorophyll supplements for body odor is that it doesn't wear off and need to be reapplied after a few hours. Body Mint is a well known chlorophyll deodorant pill.

Mineral salts have been utilized as another natural body odor treatment. They work by targeting the bacteria that lives on the surface of the skin as a means to reduce body odor. Like the previously mentioned options, mineral salts are natural and contain no harsh chemicals like aluminum, parabens or triclosan. A popular brand is Crystal Rock.

Lastly, and most interesting in my opinion is making your very own deodorant from scratch. It sounds a bit strange, but it's actually much easier than you might think. Much of the ingredients you need are things you probably have lying around the house. Baking soda, baby powder, corn starch and coco butter are usually the base ingredients. People add natural oils, tea tree oil, plant extracts like aloe vera or sage tea and even lemon can be used to top things off, add a bit of fragrance or just a bit of moisturizing effect.

Which ever direction you go, you really can't go wrong with a good natural deodorant. You reap the benefits of not having to worry about damaging your body and you still get the same great deodorant protection; just with none of the side effects.
