The Eco-Friendly and healthy alternative to chemical deodorants. 100% natural and bio-degradable, no alcohol, preservatives or perfume. Can be applied all over the body.
Contained in handy plastic casing with screw top clear cover, the stone is secured to the base which forms a convenient holder for applying the stone.
We perspire for two reasons - to reduce the body temperature, and to discharge toxins. Body odour may be a result of perspiration produced and many poeple choose to combat this by using a deodorant. Most deodorants, however, contain chemicals which are bad for us and may be bad for the environment.
Holistic Valley Deodorant Stones are made of naturally occuring mineral salts formed into a crystal called Alunite (also known as Aluminium Alum. This is not like Aluminium chlorohydrate and Aluminium zirconium chlorohydrate as found in most commercial deodorants. These can cause cause skin irritation and prevent the body from eliminating toxins through perspiration, and greatly reduce our ability to regulate body temperature.
This Natural Deodorant stone works by killing the bacteria that causes body odour, whilst letting the body perspire naturally. When you first use the stone, it is possible (although not in all cases) that the body odour will temporarily increase over a day or 2 as the body works to rid itself of the toxins from your previous deodorant but this only lasts a coupld of days and your body will soon regulate itself.
Commercial chemical deodorants contain other toxins too. All these toxins enter the body when you apply it to the skin. This can actually cause the body to perspire more in order to expel these toxins, thereby causing a 'vicious circle' effect. There are also many controversial chemicals in anti-persperants and deodorants that many believe are linked to breast cancer.
HOW TO USE:
Use after a bath or shower under damp armpits, or moisten the crystal with tap water and rub under armspits. The crystal will work at least 1 year under normal usage.
HINT - Use with one of our floral waters (from the aromatherapy section) for a natural scent. Lavender, Orange Blossom and Rose are best!
You can also break the crystal up and soak the pieces in some floral water for a few days and then transfer the liquid to a mister bottle for a spray on deodorant effect!
