I’ve had a lot of medical symptoms and just wasn’t sure what was wrong- I’ve slowly been plugging away at natural ways to diagnose and fix the problems because the doctors don’t seem to have a clue.
Symptom 1: Nauseous.
Symptom 2: Hot all of the time. Even playing outside in the snow. I wore tank tops most of the winter this past year.
Symptom 3: I stopped sweating.
After some research, I realized that sweat is a very functional part of our makeup. It helps us detox and cools our bodies down. By using antiperspirant as consistently as I was, I was potentially causing some of my symptoms. Because guess what? Over heating causes nausea. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to stop using antiperspirant. Which was great. During the winter. I stopped having issues with being hot all of the time, I started sweating again, and I wasn’t having as many issues with nausea. Yay!
The only problem is that it hit summer and I had to start using antiperspirant again. Because gosh I smell when I sweat. I decided to switch to a deodorant but didn’t know what kind to buy and GOSH the organic stuff is expensive. I did some research and discovered that magnesium oil makes a great deodorant. So I gave it a try and IT WORKS! I still sweat, but I don’t smell. It is also super easy to use in the spray on bottle. The baking soda stuff is a pain because it’s a white mess.
Supplies listed below may include affiliate links to the products.
- 4oz bottles (I only used one of these)
- 12 drops lemon essential oil
- 6 drops tea tree oil
- Magnesium Oil, slightly less than 4 oz
Not much to this. Pour your magnesium oil into your bottle. Add your essential oils. Mix.
Spray on and rub in to use. Super easy.
