Your body produces sweat as part of its natural process to keep cool when it’s hot, and to flush out toxins from the lymph nodes located just under your armpits. But the sweat itself is naturally odorless.
What causes body odor is what’s living on your skin -bacteria.
When it comes to sweat, you have 2 choices – you can either stop the sweat or neutralize the bacteria.
Commercial antiperspirants use the exact same strategy of stopping the sweat from even coming out of the sweat glands!
Check the back label of any commercial antiperspirant, and you’ll find an unpronounceable active ingredient like “aluminium chlorohydrate” or “aluminium zirconium tetrachlorohydrex gly.” These chemicals interact with sweat to form a physical plug in the duct of the sweat gland. The aluminum salts also act to constrict the sweat ducts.
There’s one big problem with this: our bodies need to sweat in order to maintain proper health. Also, remember that one of the reasons you sweat in the first place is to flush out toxins. So when your body detects multiple blockages in your sweat ducts, what will it do? Sweat. Even. More.
Even if the antiperspirant stops you from sweating under your arms, you might find that you’re excessively sweating in other places, like your arms or your back.
Recall that antiperspirants work by plugging up the ducts of your sweat glands with aluminum compounds. Some of that aluminum gets absorbed into your body. But since your body can’t process aluminum, it stores it up in tissue deposits.
If you’re making the transition from antiperspirant to a healthy deodorant, it’s true that you may feel a little sweatier while your body is flushing out those nasty aluminum salts from your sweat glands. Once you make it past the transition period, however, your body will find a new equilibrium as it produces sweat at the appropriate level it needs to maintain in order to cool you down when it’s hot.

Japan’s cherry blossoms aren’t just pretty flowers blossoming for a very short time. People drink cherry-blossom tea called “sakurayu” on special occasions, and if you ask a Japanese high school student how their exam went, they may reply with “sakura saku,” literally meaning “the Japanese cherry blossoms,” but actually saying that they passed the exam successfully. Generally, people associate the flowers with new beginnings, as it is one of the most vivid expressions of changing seasons. Spring is a time of reflection and deep thought for many.
