How To Detox Your Armpits To Prevent Breast Cancer


Did you know that beauty products like the deodorants, body washes, soaps, and other treatments sold widely are causing greater numbers for breast cancer? These products contain toxic ingredients like aluminum chlorohydrate, triclosan, parabens, glycol, TEA, FD&C, DEA, and various other toxins that no one should be absorbing through their skin, especially in excess. I found this gem of information while scouring the internet researching sicknesses because I am crazy.

There are so many different businesses out there who create natural products for people to wash and stay clean with that are awesome! Like way too many to type right now in this blog post. But definitely do some research. I know on Instagram alone if you search things like #NaturalBeauty or #OrganicBeauty or simply #Deodorant - you will find a handful of businesses making their products from home.  

I was particularly interested in this DIY because it is breast cancer awareness month and because you can never be too cautious. Let us all make sure we are taking care of ourselves and really paying attention to the things we are exposing our bodies to. Leaving you with that, I have found a way to detox your pits to clean out those pours to prevent diseases! 

Here it goes // Pit Detox



    • Organic Apple Cider Vinegar – 1 Tablespoon
    • Rosemary Essential oil – 3 Drops
    • Cilantro Essential oil – 5 drops
    • 1 tablespoon bentonite clay


Mix the ACV with clay in a bowl or glass. Add the essential oils. It should look like sour cream. You can also use Thieves oil or oregano oil. Spread a layer on your armpit and leave let rest for few minutes. If you aren’t in a hurry, you can leave it there for a longer duration so that it can really soak up the toxins.
Rinse the mixture from under your arms thoroughly and repeat the process at least once a week.

Another way to detox or to keep yourself healthy is to simply switch out your deodorant. There are a handful of natural beauty supply stores that use all organics when creating their items. typically you find the bad chemicals in the brands we know and have been using for years. It is always good to branch out and try new things, and what do you know - it may just save your life!
