All-Natural Deodorant

Smith Family Resources Beeyoutiful All-Natural Flower Fields deodorantBeeyoutiful’s All-Natural Deodorant is available in three scents: Sugar & Spice and Flower Fields for women and Spiced Woodlands for men.

Beeyoutiful’s All-Natural Deodorant is the creation of two young women who have always lived in rural areas of the US where all the roads are dirt and if you want butter you had better start shaking that jar of cream to make some! Growing almost all of their own food kept them super busy in the summers but the fall season was the busiest of all with canning and preserving. Somewhere in the midst of all this, they also managed to squeeze in careers as classically trained musicians which meant practice sessions and performances. They learned about hands-on sweat management by good old-fashioned hard work.

Frustrated with the lack of effective all-natural deodorants on the market, they decided to take matters into their own hands and start formulating one for themselves. After much research, trial and error they came up with this marvelously effective all-natural deodorant.

They made a creamy antifungal base of coconut oil, stabilized with beeswax and arrowroot powder. Baking soda was added for its odor-binding capabilities and castor and vitamin E oils help the deodorant go on smoothly. Each of Beeyoutiful’s three options is scented with naturally fragrant compounds and oils that turn the otherwise mundane task of deodorant application into an aromatherapy experience!

· Sugar & Spice contains fir and clove essential oils along with benzoin resin. (The printed label includes lavender essential oil as an ingredient. This is incorrect! There is NO lavender essential oil in the Sugar & Spice Deodorant.)

· Flower Fields includes lavender and geranium essential oils.

· Woodland Spice is blended with cedar, bitter orange and sage essential oils.

Here are some things you should know about how Beeyoutiful’s All-Natural Deodorants work:

First of all, they are not antiperspirant. This means that they will not restrict or slow your body’s natural elimination of sweat. Our bodies detoxify by sweating and it is an important and healthy function to maintain. In times of stress or sometimes due to eating certain things sweat will smell particularly bad. Based on numerous individuals’ experiences, we have observed that individuals who stop using antiperspirant deodorants to swap to something that allows sweating will have 3 months to 1 year of particularly stinky sweat until the toxins that have built up have had a chance to be flushed out. These individuals also tend to sweat in higher volumes for a time after discontinuing antiperspirant products. Again, this is the body’s way of trying to catch up and restore a healthy stasis.

Because they contain essential oils, please use caution when applying to sensitive, broken or irritated skin (such as freshly shaven skin or skin irritated by a razor that isn’t sharp enough). There might be some burning or irritation as a result.

This is not a completely clear product. Test first before using with sleeveless tops or clothing that could show a transfer residue.

Add Some D to your Day

Add some D to your day. Vitamin D, that is.

You probably already know that Vitamin D helps regulate calcium and promotes absorption which helps with bone mineralization. Did you also know that Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to blood sugar problems, low back pain, high blood pressure, Alzheimer’s, kidney stones, psoriasis, depression, seasonal affective disorder, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and auto-immune diseases? If you are dealing with any of these issues, consider adding Vitamin D to your day.

The most natural way to add Vitamin D is to get outside. Sunlight actually causes the body to produce Vitamin D. “If you’re going to get it from the sun, about 20 to 25 minutes of exposure is helpful,” says Stephen Honig, MD, director of the Osteoporosis Center at the Hospital for Joint Diseases, in New York City.

You can also get it from your food. Fatty fish (including salmon, trout, and tuna) and eggs are good sources of Vitamin D.

Most of us don’t get enough sunlight or foods rich in Vitamin D to provide all that we need, and that’s where supplements come in. Click here to check out more than 12 different supplements containing Vitamin D.  Talk with your healthcare provider about your specific Vitamin D requirements. Then read supplement nutrition facts to determine which of these products will best meet your needs.

Vitamin D Supplements

Now’s a particularly good time to consider Beeyoutiful’s D3. These Vitamin D softgels are  small, they’re easy to swallow (even for those who usually have trouble swallowing pills), AND they’re on sale. For a limited time, you can purchase a 4-month supply of Vitamin D3 for about 7 cents per day!

What’s in a Promise?

ProMiSe!  Hidden in that wonderful word, promise, is that not-so-wonderful problem, PMS (premenstrual syndrome).

Promise BlendHere’s a recipe for relief of PMS symptoms, originally shared by Beeyoutiful’s Stephanie Tallent:

Prepare 1/3 cup of a carrier oil (sweet almond or jojoba–or in a pinch, olive or coconut).  Add the following oils to the carrier oil:

  • geranium oil, 20 drops
  • chamomile oil, 10 drops
  • peppermint oil, 5 drops
  • lemon oil, 5 drops
  • lavender oil, 5 drops

This blend can be applied directly to the abdomen to relieve cramping, or to the wrists or bottoms of feet to address PMS symptoms throughout the body.

Now, with ProMiSe, a ready-to-use blend, the preparation has been done for us!

Beeyoutiful’s ProMiSe Blend is a unique combination of pure essential oils designed specifically to support women when their hormonal health is disrupting their lives.  ProMiSe Blend includes Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Peppermint, Grapefruit, Clary Sage, Chamomile, and Frankincense essential oils.
