Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I realize that Young Living now makes a deodorant containing essential oils. However, I still love doing what I learned from other distributors years ago, and that is to use a small dab of Dentarome Plus toothpaste in each armpit. I experience a minty tingling for a few minutes and then it goes away. However, it keeps me odor free the whole day!

One thing my wife noticed was that the toothpaste somehow promotes hair growth. When she uses it, her under-arm hair requires more frequent shaving. She tested this by not using the toothpaste for a few days and the rate of growth slows down. A theory could be because this toothpaste contains Rosemary oil, which is excellent for the hair follicles and scalp.

Perhaps this may help people who are trying to grow hair on their head? If you have success, please do share.
