DIY Armpit Detox Mask ( & How To Use It)

by - January 26, 2021

The first time I used bentonite clay was to make a detox facial mask, which I still love and use until this day. If you haven't tried it yet, I encourage you to give it a try, I promise you won't be disappointed. For the longest time, I've been wanting to use bentonite clay to make an underarm detox mask. Using a detox paste on the armpits has several benefits, as it helps the body release toxins and decreases the amount of sweat your body produces. Conventional deodorants and antiperspirants contain several chemicals and additives that do more harm than good.

Some might included...
  •  Parabens
  •  Aluminum
  •  Phthalates
  •  Propylene glycol 

I recommend switching to natural deodorants, whether that's buying one or making one from home. When you switch to natural deodorants, using this detox solution will help ease the transition. When I first started using homemade deodorants, my armpits released an unpleasant smell because my pores were no longer blocked. However, it's all part of the process and is completely normal.

To make this underarm cleanse, you only need 3 simple ingredients.

  • 1 TBSP Bentonite clay
  • 2 TSP Apple cider vinegar
  • 1 TSP Water 
  • (Optional) 3-5 drops of lemon or tea tree oil

  1. In a non-metal container, add the bentonite clay, vinegar, and water.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients together until you get a smooth consistency.
  3. Evenly spread the solution on the armpits and wait 5-15 minutes.
  4. Rinse off the clay in the shower with a soft washcloth.
NOTE: Repeat for a few days until your body odor goes away, and follow up with a natural deodorant.
