Where it all began....
For as long as I can remember I struggled with excessive sweating and undesirable body odour. I tried everything I could get my hands on, but nothing seemed to work. I STILL smelt funky!
This is the story of how natural deodorant changed my life....
I was just 9 years old, after a hot summers’ day in the playground, when I noticed sweat and a funky smell coming from my armpits. I immediately felt confused and embarrassed, and started asking myself an array of questions:
- How could my armpits smell so bad?
- What if my friends noticed?
- Would I be known as ‘the stinky kid’?
Little did I know this was the onset of puberty!
I convinced my mum to buy me a can of Impulse deodorant I had seen advertised on TV, hoping it would mask the terrible odour. Unfortunately, it wasn’t my saving grace…...
I continued to struggle, year in year out, with the amount of sweat and odour that would emanate from my body. Undesirable body odour would even embed into my t-shirts and I eventually had to throw them away.
It became an embarrassing burden in my life and crushed my self-confidence.
I will never forget when an older male friend of the family said, “I think you need to change your deodorant, yours is a little stale!” and handed me a can of men’s antiperspirant deodorant. I politely accepted it and slid out the door, red faced, how awkward!!
After trying every deodorant, antiperspirant, crystal, and aluminium infused body odour eater on the market, I started asking myself different questions. I wondered:
- What effect are these chemically laden products having on my body?
- Should I resort to surgery and have my sweat glands blocked?
- If I had the surgery, where would that sweat go?
I cringed at these thoughts....
Finally, I came across natural deodorant and loved the idea of making my own.
I was super excited at the thought of an all-natural, safe product! I loved the idea of selecting my own ingredients, knowing where they came from, and making my own blend of essential oils. So, I decided to play around in my kitchen in the hope of making my own deodorant that works!
After several attempts, blood, sweat (of course), and tears, and the use of my friends and family’s armpits (they all got a tin for Christmas!!), I was over the moon that I had made my own body odour eating, life changing, natural deodorant I called ‘Natural Approach’.
I had found my saving grace. It has changed my life!
My once undesirable body odour has GONE, and my self-confidence has soared. While I still sweat a little (which is essential), I am also able to wear what I want without worrying about huge sweat marks and smelly armpits.
And I love knowing that when I use Natural Approach deodorant, the ingredients are safe, smell amazing and are highly effective.
So now I want to share it with YOU.
I hope you LOVE using Natural Approach deodorant as much as I do and feel fresh and confident.
To do good and build healthier communities.
