I want to live into my 90’s or 100’s.
Not just be alive, but be living – and they’re a difference. If you’ve read many of my blog posts, you’ve likely heard me talk about my grandfather.
He’s over 85, and still an avid snowboarder and hiker. I’ve been snowboarding for almost 20 years, and he’s still able to outpace me on the hills.
In short, he’s a badass.
He had some health issues in his 40’s and 50’s which caused him to start taking his health seriously. He switched his diet, and was much more conscious about his lifestyle and products he used.
Why am I talking about this? Because I think my best bet at living in my 90’s or later is by following the same path.
One idea he’s impressed upon me is to avoid unnecessary chemicals.
It’s not so much that they’re inherently bad. It’s that you don’t find out normally until many years later which are bad. That’s why I’m more cautious than the normal person about what I use to clean my house, what I eat, and what I put on my body.
There aren’t a lot of products I put on myself everyday, so I want to make sure the ones that I do are as safe as they can be.
DDT, Talc, Asbestos, Lead Paint, Smoking, or even recently Roundup weed killer. All were thought to be safe until proven not to be YEARS later! That’s why I’m a fan of Native Deodorant and mostly for what it doesn’t have in it, like phthalates, parabens, aluminum, or talc.
Another reason I like Native is because it actually works. I’ve tried other natural deodorants before, and I haven’t had much luck. I’ve been using Native for at least 6 months and I’ve been happy with it. It doesn’t have aluminum in it, so it doesn’t completely block your sweat, but it does seem lessen it and of course keeps you smelling “fresh.”
Another “pro” for native is that it also glides on like a normal deodorant stick. It doesn’t stain either and acts like you’d expect a normal deodorant to ( I only mention this because some other natural deodorants don’t)
I’ve tried multiple scents and my favorite so far is Eucalyptus & Mint.
Have you tried out any natural deodorants? What brands have worked for you?
