While some may be tackling to do lists at home, we want to assure you that it's okay if your biggest accomplishment is the sheer number of Netflix series you've watched -- as long as you're staying home, you're good. And we're right here with you (from a safe distance)!
If you're looking for a new show to stream tonight (that isn't Tiger King), we've got you covered. And we'd love to hear-- and share-- your recommendations, too.
And if you're feeling a bit more adventurous, we can think of no better time than now to make the switch from conventional to natural, non-toxic deodorant. Read on for details and a chance to win a year's worth of our celebrated Magnesium Deodorant!
Being quarantined is the perfect time to switch to natural deodorant! (We'll take silver linings wherever we can get them.) As you make the transition, you may notice temporary changes (ahem... possible odor and wetness). Why not bravely forge ahead with this important, healthy switch when your commute consists of a walk to the living room, rather than a sprint to the subway?
Our bodies are designed to sweat-- this is how we regulate body temperature and detox. When we use conventional antiperspirant/deodorants, ingredients such as aluminum effectively plug our sweat glands, disrupting this very normal and productive process. During your transition to natural deodorant, you may notice increased wetness and a possible change in body odor for a couple weeks as your body adjusts.
You may sweat, but natural deodorants will not leave you stinky.
By eliminating aluminum and other possibly toxic ingredients from your daily routine, you're committing to caring for your body -- and being gentle with ourselves is critical during this unprecedented time.
Our Magnesium Deodorant was a true labor of love for Violets Are Blue founder Cynthia Besteman. As a breast cancer survivor, she will tell you that making the switch to natural deodorant (and eliminating aluminum) is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your health. Our deodorant is sports-tested, free from baking soda, arrowroot powder, and essential oils -- and the magnesium base provides a myriad of benefits. We'd love for you to make the switch with us!
