Thankful Moments #CrystalRollOn #CBias

It's not just Thanksgiving... but the entire "Christmas season" puts me in a very thankful frame of mind. I try to practice being thankful year-round, but there's something about the holiday spirit that reminds me very deeply how blessed my family has been!

We have a beautiful home, loving family, adorable son, a strong faith we share, and ... our health! As the saying goes, "If you don't have your health, you don't have anything." I know from minor illenesses I've gotten that being sick takes all the fun and joy out of life. You just aren't in a state to enjoy it, and you certainly don't FEEL like being thankful for life's goodness. So I am deeply grateful that our entire family is in good health overall.

Know what else I'm thankful for? It might sound silly but... if it weren't for blogging, we probably wouldn't BE in such good health! Blogging has introduced me to great brands and products that are all-natural and good for us. From blogs I have learned how to remove some unnecessary harsh chemicals from my cleaning, my foods, and now, even my body products! I'm thankful that I got to try out the new Crystal Roll On Deodorant - because of my blogging work!

I've long been aware that putting aluminum on your skin and in your body is not healthy. There are links to Alzheimer's disease and other neurological disfunctions when aluminum is absorbed into the body. So it's been a long time since I have used deodorants and anti-perspirants that contain aluminum (for the record, I have YET to find an anti-perspirant that does NOT contain aluminum!). I've tried an assortment of natural deodorants with varying success.

I wasn't sure I'd like Crystal Roll On Deodorant because it goes on wet. However, despite not loving that cool, wet feeling, this deodorant actually works GREAT! I have been reaching for it again and again the past few weeks, and saying bye-bye to my regular stick deodorant! See, I sometimes get nervous when I have to speak in public or be in large social settings, or even when I get caught off guard - I guess my "embarrass" reflex is set way too high. When I get nervous, I get sweaty! Sweaty = stinky! Yeah, I go through laundry like crazy!

Even family gatherings like Thanksgiving dinner gets me a bit worked up - so thankfully I had Crystal Roll On this year to help me keep my cool (and save my new sweater from getting stinky!:

So... I have been happy to say that with Crystal Roll On, every time I use it, I either don't even get sweaty at all, or I might sweat a little but I don't smell bad! PHEW! Lifesaver! And yet another thing to be thankful for!
Bye Bye old deodorants! Hello Cyrstal Roll On!
Crystal Roll On is available at Walmart, but you might have to hunt for it on the top shelf - it can be shy! Hopefully as it grows more popular, we'll see it right in that prime center space for everyone to find! And, you can get a $1 off coupon on their website! I'm very happy to know Walmart has started to carry more natural products!

Have you ever considered switching to a natural deodorant like #CrystalRollOn ?

It is so scary to think about all the chemicals that people put on their bodies without even knowing. Thanks for sharing, and glad to hear you found a product that takes care of your body!

I need some serious protection during a workout. I have vigorous workouts that involve a lot of sweat. Its better to use some chemical free Deodorant Crystal.
