Feed your Head, and Skin

Be mindful of ingredients not only in food, but also in personal care products. Did you know that lots of deodorants contain aluminum? Right, that same nasty element that has been linked to Alzheimer's disease. Might be time to try a natural deodorant. Natural deo's don't contain chemical antiperspirants to prevent sweating (yet), so you may need to reapply during the day. A brand you might like is Weleda. Either Citrus or Sage Deodorant -- it's basically an alcohol with essential oils and some herbal ingredients added to it. Alcohol or grapeseed extracts are the good guys -- they're in a lot of natural deo's and they act as natural preservatives. Natural preservative...has a nice ring to it. One more thing -- it's not cheap, but Don't Sweat the Small Stuff.
