About a year ago, I began making my own deodorant/antiperspirant using baking soda, coconut oil, and essential oils for scent. Why? Because I started to get concerned about the link between breast cancer and aluminum in most store-bought deodorants. Now, I don’t have a history of breast cancer, and I know correlation doesn’t equal causation. But I thought it couldn’t hurt to try to break away from it, anyway. And I’ve never regretted that decision. It also made me start wondering about the other stuff I’m using on a daily basis. For example, Lysol kills germs (which is good), but it also kills spiders – I know this from experience. Do I really want my children around it that much? Um, NO!
At least, that’s the way I was thinking until last night when I watched a movie called STINK that solidified the importance of avoiding as many chemicals as possible in our everyday lives. You must, must, MUST watch this movie. Everyone in the world should watch this movie – even my eight-year-old daughter agrees! Still haunted this morning by what I learned by watching that movie last night, I took the Norwex plunge, and I’m super excited. I only wish I hadn’t waited so long to do it.
