If you didn’t already know, husband and I are sort of Bohemian. We stopped eating most processed foods, don’t use normal soap or deodorant, and he uses baking soda and water for shampoo (I’m not there yet). Husband has noticed that our lifestyle changes have facilitated diminishing body odor. This decrease is not just after working out, but in life in general. Additionally, I’ve shared about our love affair with the Vibram Five Fingers. His feet hardly smell when he takes his off. Now let’s talk about me…I smell….not all the time, but on occasion I’ll be going through my day and just catch a rank whiff of myself. This is not a good quality when you teach middle school, except I suppose I likely fit in and they don’t even notice, but I digress. Also, the Five Fingers are out of control when I take them off. They need to be febreezed immediately and my feet go into the sink. This is not fair. Boys are supposed to smell and girls aren’t. I would just go back to real deodorant, but since we’re kind of hippies, I’m sure I’ll get cancer if I do. When this stick is done I’ll be trying a new brand. Anyone out there had good experiences with natural deodorants?
