Benefits Of An Armpit Detox Cleanse

I've tried a lot of detoxes in my life but never an underarm one. So I googled and looked at the ingredients I had in my pantry and gave these guys a bit of a mix. Big thanks to Stella from Naturalista Australia who inspired my cleanse today.   

Armpit Cleanse and Detox  


This guy has anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties which fight harmful bacteria, fungus, and virus that cause diseases and infections. Its antioxidant property helps eliminate toxins from the body.

Bicarbonate Soda

For under two dollars you can buy a box of this if you want to avoid the parabens and aluminum found in many deodorants and antiperspirants. This alkaline substance has antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also a powerful medical tool effective at combating everything from colds to oral problems to skin issues.

Turmeric Powder

This natural powerhouse powder is used in innumerable ways and it has a lot of benefits for skin and hair. Turmeric has been known to contain numerous antioxidants as well as antibacterial properties. Giving you amazing benefits for your skin, hair, and health.

Coconut Oil

Not only does it taste and smell amazing but coconut oil is also has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties. It's great for our skin, an excellent moisturizer and penetrates into our skin and hair better than other oil. 


Simply mix all of the ingredients together until you get a paste.  

Other ingredients you can use are apple cider vinegar, lemon, or witch hazel.  Healing bentonite clay, apple cider vinegar, water. Or just use some lemon juice or bicarb soda and mix with some water until you get a paste consistency.

Why we should do an underarm cleanse and detox; 

  1. To clean out the build-up of toxins on the skin
  2. Reduce the volume and odor of your sweat
  3. Boost the immune system and decrease your cancer risk. 
  4. It unblocks your pores and reduces product build-up in the glands of your armpits
  5. Reduce the volume and odour of your sweat and may cause less irritation and less perspiration

So go on! Give your underarms so loving today. Especially for those of us who have been wearing conventional antiperspirants or deodorants for quite some time. It feels great and I'm feeling refreshed and odour free as I type. 

Make sure you stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water to flush out your toxins!
