Don’t Smell Like A Beast When The SHTF

A while back (has to be over a year now), I read an article about how many deodorants/antiperspirants contain chemicals that are bad for your body.  As a result, many people choose to make their own deodorant.

For those of you who don’t want to go to the trouble of making your own with essential oils, creams and other stuff, I have another option.

A family member gave me a crystal stone a while back.  All I had to do was wet it and apply it under my arm.  Amazingly, it worked!  The bad thing was that the stone was jagged and it took careful application and time to finally wear it down to a smooth surface.  Then, one day, I dropped it.  The crystal shattered all over the bathroom floor and it was gone.

Then, about a year ago, I found a “smooth” Thai Chrystal Deodorant Stone in the health section of my local grocery store.  Since I was fresh off of reading the article above, I decided to buy it.  Well…it works.  I’ve used 1, not completely, it is up at the country.  I’m now on my second one…they seem to last forever.

Recently, I found the product on Amazon for about 1/2 the price ($6.38) that I bought it at my local store.  But again, I’m only on my 2nd one in 1 year.  Here are some comments from Amazon customers…

I think that this product is great. I really didn’t think that it would work but it does. The trick is to put it all over the under arm not just where the hair grows. You need to go lower down the side and higher up the arm. Form a large circle and wet it twice if you need to. My friend was disappointed with hers until I made these suggestions then she was quite amazed and it doesn’t stain as far as I know. So put it on liberally and don’t worry it’s only salt. I did a test and mine lasted two and three days most of the time.

This natural deodorant is more effective than any chemical laiden product on the drug store shelves. It costs slightly more to buy, but it will last you over a YEAR! And, those yellow stains on your white shirts that you attribute to perspiration…? Guess what, they aren’t from perspiration… they are from the aluminum and other harmful metals and chemicals in traditional deodorants. This product makes the entire deodorant/antiperspirant industry obsolete and a health harming scam…

The skin if very porous and absorbable, especially in the sensitive underarm areas and a daily dose of aluminum and chemicals will cause ill health eventually. Stop using that crap and use this natural salt stone… it contains all of the trace minerals that your body needs and the salt helps to keep you dry. If your body needs minerals it will abosorb them, if it doesn’t, they will add protection from odor and staining. Need I go on???

Now, the Thai Crystal is only a deodorant.  It took some time to get used to not using an antiperspirant.  Mostly, I just wear a t-shirt now.  But if you think about it, you shouldn’t really be using antiperspirants anyway.  Perspiring is your body’s way of cooling off.  If you put a substance on your body that causes it to not do it’s natural function…well…that’s not good!

The Thai Crystal Rock is scent free for those of you who are allergic to scents.  It can be used by men and women.  Just wet it, apply liberally all over your armpits and you are good to go.  I have not had any “stinky” issues since using this product.

Have you tried a crystal stone before?  What are your thoughts?
