Baking soda: The world's cheapest dedorant

Baking soda: The world's cheapest deodorant

The amount of unnatural chemicals in food, air and water just keeps increasing. The increase has been tremendous, with thousands of new chemicals being introduced every year, many of them insufficiently tested. A recent UN report points out that every third child in the world, or 800 million children, have lead levels in their blood exceeding the limit of five microgram per deciliter. With this in mind, it seems wise to try to reduce the exposure to chemicals as much as possible, for example aluminum, which is used in many deodorants.

What is the reason why we smell under our arms? Normally sweat does not smell, but instead the odor arises from bacteria that live under our arms. When the bacteria eat old skin cells in the armpit, an acidic substance called trans-3-methyl-2-hexenoic acid (TMHA) is released. When TMHA is mixed with water and air, the odor occurs. Baking soda reacts with the acidic TMHA, which neutralises the smell. Learn how to create your own baking soda deodorant.

    Conscious Breathing has helped me come home to myself

    "Breathing properly is not always easy. Where to start? What is breathing? Why did I join this course? What is the point of it all? Why should you learn to breathe? Do you not just, like breathe, as usual, always? What is so special about a breathing course? Breathing is easy, I suppose. Especially for a yoga teacher.

    The breathwork was pretty tough at first, mainly because of the large amount of saliva that came out. But it was extremely rewarding as I experienced a completely different existence in my everyday life!

    I can testify that the breathing retraining has been incredibly rewarding.I felt happier, more relaxed and lighter in both body and mind. My inner stress started to melt, and lots of tears were pouring. It has been like coming home from a long journey and getting a hug. Coming home to oneself, into oneself."
    Breathe through difficult emotions

    Breathe through difficult emotions

    There is a very interesting connection between how we breathe and trauma and unpleasant, unprocessed emotions that we have experienced. Expressions such as butterflies in my stomach and stress stomach indicate that the difficult emotions are often situated in our stomach-area. The reason why many of us have a shallow chest breathing is simply to avoid getting in touch with grief, fear, anger and so on. Moving up our breath into the chest is an attempt to “run away” from the unpleasant feelings often situated in our abdominal area.

    When we are afraid, tensed up and worried, another common breathing pattern is to breathe in and hold our breath. It is a natural reflex as our body prepares to meet a perceived danger. The expression “The danger is over, so now we can exhale” as we sigh in relief, reflects this breathing pattern well.

    In the short term, it is a survival strategy as we are unable to deal with the painful emotions that seem overwhelming. In the long run, it is, however, not a particularly wise strategy.

    The four steps of honesty

    The four steps of honesty

    There is something magical about honesty. It is contagious and inspiring, just like self-confidence and harmony. A person who radiates honesty is a person we feel we can confide in—a person we can trust, who keeps his or her promises. We tend to feel confident about this person. But what does honesty really mean? Not stealing, of course, is being honest. But honesty is much more than that. To be honest is to be true—true to myself and true to others, honest with who I am, what I want, what I like as well as what I do not like or want.

    Here you can read about my journey from dishonest criminal to naturally honest from the heart. Maybe it can inspire you to climb the stairway of honesty.
