Excessive Armpit Sweating Deodorant

Excessive Armpit Sweating Deodorant

Excessive armpit sweating (hyperhidrosis) is a common problem, especially of the palms, armpits and soles.

Excessive Armpit Sweating effects roughly 1% of the world population. It can be distressing and can have a serious impact on their life. In some cases, affected people avoid social contact with others because of embarrassment about the problem.

What is excessive armpit sweating?

excessive-armpit-sweating-deodorantNormal sweating helps to keep the body temperature steady in hot weather, during a high temperature (fever), or when exercising.

Every healthy human produces approximately 1-2 pints of sweat a day, which is an odorless liquid. Chemically based commercial products have been known to contain products that block the sweat glands and inhibit their natural temperature regulation. The decomposition of bacteria on the skin form substances with odor. Our homemade herbal deodorant recipes, do not contain products that block the sweat glands however they contains products that prevent odor from forming.

Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) means that you sweat much more than normal. Even when you are not hot, anxious, or exercising, you make a lot of sweat.

Excessive armpit sweating results from excessive sympathetic stimulation of the eccrine sweat glands. Some herbs, such as Sage (Salvia officinalis), have been found to be very useful in the treatment of excessive armpit sweating.

You have probably lived with this condition for some time and have done a lot of research online yourself so I am not going to delve into the medical side of the problem here. If you need more in depth information for Excessive Armpit Sweating you can find it HERE.

Deodorant For Sensitive Skin

Deodorant For Sensitive Skin

Deodorant for sensitive skin is easy to make. But do you really need it?

deodorant-for-sensitive-skinTry my deodorant for sensitive skin recipe if you think you have sensitive skin. If skin care products, or household products that contact your skin, cause stinging, burning, redness, or tightness therefore that could be an indication that you have sensitive skin. Some say they have sensitive skin because even though they have no visible effects after contact with a skin product, it always makes their skin feel uncomfortable.

But here is what dermatologists look for when diagnosing sensitive skin:

Skin reactions such as pustules, skin bumps, or skin erosion
Very dry skin which doesn’t properly protect nerve endings in the skin
A tendency toward blushing and skin flushing

How do You know if You have sensitive skin?

Have a dermatologist check your skin. That’s the best way to find out if you have sensitive skin or whether something else is causing your skin condition.

I’m pursuing a healthier life.

Over the last 20+ years I’ve become aware of not only what I put in my body, but also what I put on my body. I started to look more critically at the toothpaste I use, the lotion I put on my skin, and yes, even the deodorant I use.

Our skin absorbs a great deal of what we put on it. So, if we’re putting chemicals on our body, it will absorb those chemicals. Here are a few of the things you should be aware of that are found in conventional deodorant.

1. Aluminum
2. Parabens
3. Propylene Glycol
4. Phthalates
5. Triclosan

Knowing that many of these chemicals found in deodorants are toxic carcinogens and may cause major health problems make me look for alternatives. Making my own deodorant and other skin care products was one of those alternatives. Why? I could control what was in it.

There are, indeed some fantastic alternatives, but I wouldn’t look in your local grocery store for them. Even some of the “natural” deodorants I’ve picked up from the store contain some of these chemicals.
Herbal deodorant sprays are especially good for sensitive skin.

My deodorant for sensitive skin recipe will keep you smelling fresh even if you sweat a great deal over the course of a day without having to reapply. No unknown chemicals to worry about. I use just simple, effective, natural ingredients.

My homemade deodorant for sensitive skin recipe, does not contain products that block the sweat glands however they contains products that prevent odor from forming. Zinc-oxide is an odour-free, natural raw material, combined with Calendula and Lavender oils which kill the bacteria that make your perspiration smell unpleasant. Zinc-oxide doesn’t close the pores or stop the natural process of perspiration.

If you have sensitive skin you can safely try the recipe below:

Basic Recipe

2 tsp. zinc-oxide powder
2/3 cup witch-hazel extract
2 tbsp. aloe-vera juice
30-40 drops essential oil(s)

Directions:

In a small bowl, stir the zinc-oxide powder into the witch-hazel extract, and add the aloe-vera juice and essential oil(s). Fill an 8-oz. dark-glass spray bottle with the fluid.

For Deodorant for Sensitive Skin

Use Basic Recipe (above)
30 drops calendula extract
10 drops lavender essential oil

Calendula Extract and lavender oils are mild yet potent fighters of bacteria and odor.

Application:

Wash your armpits thoroughly and dry them well. The components of your herbal deodorant have reliable and long-lasting effectiveness only when applied to clean skin. Then spray the deodorant across the skin several times to dampen it. Let it dry before getting dressed so it doesn’t stain your clothes.

Foot Odor Deodorant Recipe

Foot Odor Deodorant Recipe

Making Foot Odor Deodorant the Natural Organic Way

foot-odor-deodorantThe need for a foot odor deodorant is pretty clear. Sweat causes foot odor. Your feet have more sweat glands than any other parts of the body.

These glands can produce as much as a cup of sweat each day. The ideal environment for bacteria to grow is moist and warm. Because you wear shoes most of the day this creates an ideal environment for bacteria to run rampant, resulting in foot odor. Additionally, anxiety or stress, certain drugs, and body hormone shifts can also cause a spike in foot odor.

Our raw materials for making foot odor deodorant will help you to avoid high street versions, which contain aluminium hydroxychloride, which can be irritating to the skin.

As this is easily absorbed by damaged skin, it is not the best solution for our foot odor problems. So why not make your own Natural Foot Odor Deodorants, the Organic way!

Dealing With Foot Odor

  1/2 cup of baking soda

2 tbsp. of zinc oxide powder

2 tbsp. of fine, dry white clay

4 tbsp. of powdered sage.

Directions

Blend all the powders together and store in a small container with a lid.

Application:

Clean your feet and dry them thoroughly. Dust them with the above mixture. Sprinkle a bit inside your shoes as well, to keep your feet fresh all day.
