Natural Deodorant and Why Probiotics Are Crucial When It Comes to Body Odor

Jill Stacey

Bacteria Causes Body Odor

Bacteria Causes Body Odor

We've all had it happen: While in a public place, maybe a crowded train, at the gym, or even while waiting in line at a local Whole Foods store... All of a sudden, without warning, you catch an other-than-pleasant odor emanating from someone within sniffing range. You might attempt to distance yourself a bit, but in this situation, oftentimes you just have to practice shallow breathing and wait for it to pass. You are immediately reminded of the importance of deodorant. 

About body odor

No matter who you are, you have some sort of body odor. Whether it is detectable to the average nose or not is another story. Some people are naturally without strong scent, while others fall on the opposite end of the spectrum. I have tried to unlock the mysteries of this little puzzle, and it has proven quite tricky to figure out. There seem to be many factors at play here....

It is said that perspiration is actually odorless. So it is not actually sweating that causes an unpleasant scent, but rather bacteria and odors from other sources.

A common contributor to body odors lies on the surface of the skin. Because of the nature of the underarm area (being a place where perspiration is likely to transpire), it can be a place of refuge for all sorts of bacteria. This is perfectly healthy and natural. However, with the use of common deodorants, resident bacteria can easily get tipped off balance, causing the proliferation of odor-producing undesirable bacteria...and contributing to more strongly scented body odors. It can become a challenging and difficult to resolve cycle.

Another possible cause of body odor are toxins being shifted around or released from the body. Strategic, targeted, and personalized cleansing regimens can greatly assist in decreasing body odor. Addressing dietary and nutritional imbalances in the body can also serve to assist in the alleviation of unappealing odors. 

How to get rid of body odor

Because there are many potential causative factors that can contribute to body odor, it is best to take a multi-directional approach when working to resolve the issue. First, do a careful evaluation of where you are at with your overall health. Implement gentle detoxification strategies tailored to your own needs. 

The next strategy is to find the perfect natural deodorant for your body. If you are currently using a product that contains unnatural ingredients (which are also found in most "natural" deodorants), its time to make the switch to something that promotes balance rather than imbalance....something that actually helps you to break the cycle of unpleasant body odor. 

All natural deodorant

When shopping for a safe and effective natural deodorant, be sure to read over the label carefully. Unfortunately, it is extremely difficult to find products that are actually as natural as they claim to be. Taking the time to educate yourself about the ingredients in the products that you choose and use is an empowering endeavor.

Certain chemicals present in deodorants actually kill all of the bacteria that live on the skin at the site of application, even the bacteria that is favorable and works to prevent body odor. In addition, you will oftentimes find chemicals that are toxic to the body. Anti-perspirants further the damage done, through their action of blocking the sweat glands and preventing the release of toxins, as well containing health damaging heavy metals, like aluminum.

The creation of something new: Why I developed my own line of all natural deodorant

I could see that there was a tremendous need for safe, effective, healthy and harmonizing natural deodorants for people to choose from. I was unable to find anything that met my standards, so Elaa probiotic deodorant was born. Elaa probiotic deodorant works with the body's natural processes, promoting the growth of healthy bacteria on the skin. It brings balance to this special region of the body, allowing for it to function at its optimal level, and also assists in the removal of toxins from the body. In addition, the by-products of this natural and balanced process co-create an intoxicating scent. Elaa probiotic deodorant is powerful in its ability to not only eliminate odor, but also to encourage lasting balance. It is gentle and healing to the delicate and sensitive skin found on this part of the body.
