whats in my shampoo?

Wanted to share a thought provoking video I found.

In the past few years I've switched to almost all natural or home made personal care products. I make my own personalized body wash with Dr. Bronner's castile soap and essential oils. I can change the fragrance when my mood changes. Peppermint or sweet orange for when I need a lift and lavender and ylang-ylang when I want to relax. When my skin gets dry I can add jojoba oil (the earth's best moisturizer). I am currently looking for a good aluminum free deodorant.....that works. I've tried quite a few and I don't think I need to explain why I'm still looking. Have any of you decided to switch to" eco" brands? If so, which ones are your favorite?


  1. I use EarthScience brand deodorant. It is liken to stop the sweating and has a fresh herbal scent... closer to herbal laundry than a bucket of herbs (like the burt's bees spray). I told one of my old teachers about it... They sell it at the co-ops here and a store called Sunflower, but doesn't seem like Whole Foods or anything does... So if you want to try it, you'd have to order it online... Don't pay much more than 5 bucks for it though. It lasts a pretty decent while also. :)

  2. thanks for the tip whit! right now I'm using Avalon Organics Deodorant Spray. It works fine most days but makes me smell like I took a bath in toothpaste. When I work out I end up smelling like toothpaste and b.o. I will try the earth science next.

  3. You can get a deodorant salt they make it looks like a round crystal rock. The Himalayan is a good one. I am going to Florida in February and they sell them a a farmers market there if you cant find one. you apply it while you are still wet out of the shower or you dampen it and apply it.
