How To Detox Your Armpits With Essential Oils
Even if you aren’t a super sweater, it can be important to give your underarms a detox from time to time. Researchers at The University Of Oxford recently discovered that a specific protein located in the armpits is responsible for converting odorless compounds into stinky sweat. An effective armpit detox can help the body eliminate toxins in the body and keep you smelling fresh.
Regularly using OTC deodorants and antiperspirants can cause a chemical buildup on the skin over time. Along with good ole’ fashioned soap and water, essential oils can help clear away chemicals and odor-causing bacteria. Tea Tree essential oil is a natural astringent and antiseptic. Its antibacterial properties can help purify the body and cut back on underarm sweat.
Before you begin an armpit detox, rinse with our clarifying Charcoal Natural Bar Soap in the shower or bath. Naturally exfoliating, it helps draw out impurities and protect against free radicals. After you cleanse, follow our guide for the steps to make your very own Natural Armpit Detox Spray.
