LaVanilla Laboratories Deodorant

Most deodorants contain aluminum which is a neurotoxin. Read about the dangers here. The problem for us sweaty folk is that it’s very difficult to find an aluminum-free alternative.

I already mentioned that I’ll swipe witch hazel under my arms. Also, I find that a swipe of rubbing alcohol does the trick as well. But when I want to feel a bit more “normal,” I use Lavanilla Laboratories Solid Stick Deodorant.

My favorite scent is vanilla, so this is a no brainer, but when I spotted this Starlight Deo Trio, I was curious to try some of Lavanilla’s other scents. Here, we have Vanilla Snowberry, Pure Vanilla, and Vanilla Amber. All of which smell amazing! Snowberry has a hint of fruitiness and Vanilla Amber is more musky.

I highly recommend Lavanilla deodorants (I’ve repurchased numerous times) because they’ll have you smelling sweet, but be warned, no aluminum means no dryness after a while. I’m able to get past that knowing the benefits far outweigh the costs however.

Have you tried Lavanilla? Do you use aluminum free deodorant also?

FAITH: When I Chose Modesty

When I was in my teens and early 20s, I was extremely immodest. While I was getting ready to go out, my goal was to look as hot as possible and collect as much attention as possible. 

I thought that if I could be the hottest woman in the room, I would be able to capture attention and it would be mine for as long as I wanted. It didn't occur to me that the kind of attention I was seeking is a fleeting kind. In other words, it didn't matter if I was the most beautiful woman that guy had ever seen. The kind of guy who appreciated my immodesty had zero standards whatsoever. He'd hang on my every word until someone else's skin flashed by. He'd flirt with me and then turn around and flirt with every other girl as well. This guy didn't care about whose makeup was better, who was witty, who had better legs, who was nicest, etc. The kind of guy who is attracted to immodesty is only interested in one thing and that's not your heart. This dude has no other standards an…

FAITH: Are You Willing to Give God Anything He Wants?

Push Up popsicles are interesting.  In order to eat more ice cream, you need to literally push up the stick that's connected to the platform in which the ice cream sits.

My toddlers both lack the strength and dexterity to push up their Push Ups, so I have to make myself available to help them out.  One of my boys understands this.  As his ice cream dips below the cardboard container, he'll eagerly hand his treat over so I can push the stick upwards and he can continue eating.  My other boy doesn't yet understand why he needs my help.  He'd rather chew at the cardboard than willingly hand over his treat for two seconds.  Whenever it's time to push up his ice cream, he grips it tight and puts up a fight against me even though my motive is completely for his benefit.  I never take the ice cream for myself, I only obtain the Push Up in order to make it possible for my boys to have more ice cream.  So they don't have to resort to gnawing on soggy cardboard.

This remin…
