Using Natural Mineral Salts To Prevent Body Odor

I know longer use traditional deodorant!

      Sponsored post: I received samples of Crystal Essence mineral deodorant to facilitate this post.

  Most people have a hard time giving up traditional deodorant as they don't want to be that person who stinks. We all have experienced standing in line next to someone who forgot to wear deodorant and it was not a pleasant experience. I remember back in middle school a teacher who had a terrible sweating problem. This teacher sweated so bad that he would have huge wet spots on his shirt. This teacher also liked to use his arms when talking and he would walk around the room. It was awful when he would stand next to you. This was way before those clinical deodorants so I am sure the teacher just lived with this problem. So I get it when people say they won't give up their chemical based deodorant. I guess since I work at home, it was easier for me to make the switch.


  So I have been trying different brands and types of natural deodorants so I could see how each one works.  Last month I tried a solid type of natural deodorant and they work great until winter time. In the winter I get frustrated as the solids need warmth to spread so I have to hold in under my arm for 30 seconds for it to spread. So when I discovered a roll-on mineral deodorant I knew I had to give it a try. I like scent under my arm so I liked that Crystal Essence came in scents like lavender, vanilla, pomegranate, and chamomile. I also liked that the fragrance was from natural scents. I admit I was I little hesitant in trying this roll-on as it was made from salt. My sensitive skin doesn't like salt, I have broken out in rashes from playing with salt play dough and from my own sweat. So the first time I applied Crystal Essence, I made sure to stay home for a while just in case I had to wash it off. I was pleasantly surprised that I had no irritation that day. Maybe because it is made from mineral salt.


Crystal™ is the world's leading natural mineral salt deodorant. It works to prevent odor while other products attempt to mask it or plug pores with harsh chemicals like aluminum chlorohydrate or aluminum zirconium. Crystal is a hypoallergenic deodorant that is safe, healthy, and totally effective

  I really like how easy the roll-on went on, it did feel a bit wet but it dried in less than 30 seconds. The fragrance was light but had a nice scent to it. In fact, it may have been too light for me as I caught myself smelling my pits to make sure I did not stink. The good news is my pits did not have any bad smell. The next day I applied the roll-on again when I went out running and my pits did not sweat nor stink afterward. I think the lavender is my favorite scent so far.

  The one thing that I have noticed about using natural roll-on deodorant is my pits do stink when I forget to apply the product in the morning. Tip: Crystal Essence works better with clean arm pits so make sure to wash them before applying. When I used the chemical stuff, I could skip a day or two and not stink. Makes one wonder about how strong those chemicals are. So since I tend to forget to apply my natural product, I keep one in the car and by my computer downstairs in addition to one in my bathroom. I do the same with my lotion as life gets busy and I just forget. So if I had to choose which form of natural deodorant was my favorite, I like the solids for their amazing scents. The roll-on form is great for ease of use, especially in the winter. It is all about personal preference as to which type to use. The roll-on leaves no white residue either so when I am wearing a sleeve less dress, the Crystal Essence with be my choice of deodorant.


  My advice for those who are still hesitant about switching to natural deodorants is to try one on a day off from work to see how your body adapts. Then make sure to carry the product in your purse to reapply if needed. Sometimes it can take a week for your body to get used to the switch but if you want to get those harsh chemicals out of your body then you have to give it a try.

  7. I'd love to try these. I hate the stains my current deodorant leaves on all my t-shirts. I'd probably pick the vanilla jasmine one first.

  8. I'm not a fan of roll on deoderants, I prefer a spray because they are less likely to leave a stain. Rich B.

  10. Ohhh I've never heard of this brand before, and the product sounds really interesting. But I'm not sure how comfortable I'd be trying a new product like this... I prefer spray on deodrants, as they don't leave my armpits sticky! x
