As the days grow shorter and cooler, it’s a good time to make a change and switch to a natural deodorant. But before you do, you need to do a pit detox! This may sound strange, but it’s an important step in making the transition to a natural deodorant. By doing a pit detox, you can help unblock sweat glands and reduce redness and rashes in your armpits. Plus, it’ll help naturally absorb toxins like heavy metals, leaving your underarms fresh and clean. So take the plunge and give yourself the best chance at a successful transition to a natural deodorant.
The most important ingredients are:
Apple cider vinegar is much more than just a kitchen staple. It has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for a variety of skin conditions, and for good reason. This powerhouse ingredient contains antimicrobial properties that can help kill bacteria and other pathogens that cause unwanted odors. In addition, apple cider vinegar works wonders for balancing the natural pH levels of your skin, which can improve the overall health and appearance of your skin. With so many benefits, it’s no wonder that apple cider vinegar is quickly becoming a must-have in any skincare routine. Whether you’re looking to improve your skin’s health or simply looking for a natural way to fight unwanted odors, apple cider vinegar is definitely worth a try.
Bentonite clay has been used for centuries for its incredible ability to pull toxins from the skin, leaving it detoxified and refreshed. This powerful ingredient, formed from volcanic ash, works by adsorbing oils and dirt from the skin, ultimately leaving it feeling clean and healthy. In my personal recipe, I use the bentonite clay powder to specifically target oils and bacteria that can accumulate on the skin. By drawing away moisture and pulling toxins from the skin, this clay has become a go-to ingredient for many looking to take their skincare routine to the next level. Give it a try and see the difference for yourself!

What you need:
- 1 heaped teaspoon Bentonite Clay
- 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
- 2 drops of desired Essential Oils (Rosemary or Cilantro recommended)

- Great to do this once a week if you have odour issues, otherwise I like to use this once a month to help keep my pits fresh.
If you are looking to transition to a natural deoderant, we suggest using this detoxifying pit paste for about 2 weeks prior to transitioning every 2nd day.
Important to note: Do not apply to recently shaved skin or if you have open/broken skin in the area.
You may feel some tingling or redness in the area, this is completely normal. If you have any concerns seek medical attention.
