I’ve tried a number of aluminum free deodorants. Most of them didn’t work at all.
Crystal Mineral Deodorants have worked really well for me. I’m not a heavy sweater though. And I don’t spend a ton of time in the heat.
I love this deodorant for active days when I’m going to sweat more:
Primal Pit Paste – it comes in unscented and essential oil varieties. This does contain shea butter which can be a problem with latex allergies. It is a bit hard to apply with the applicator. I find the easiest way is to put the amount I’m going to use in my hand and let it warm up a little to soften it, then apply directly with fingers.
Primal Life Organics Deodorant:
Is a new option I am very excited about.
I only use essential oils for fragrance. Not everyone tolerates essential oils. But if you do, Rocky Mountain Oils is a wonderful company. There are major issues with essential oils being diluted with toxic, synthetic fragrance and other additives. Rocky Mountain Oils is certified and third-party tested. Their essential oils are therapeutic grade. And I really appreciate that they aren’t a MLM – Multi-Level Marketing company. I don’t have time for all that complication. I like to just buy my products and be done. I really trust this company. My favorites to dab on for a little fragrance are:
Balance – a floral, citrus, woody blend that is grounding
Citrus Passion – a bright and light, refreshing scent that is uplifting
Calming – a fruity, floral smell that is relaxing
Organic Broccoli Seed Oil: This is a lightweight oil that is perfect for smoothing those fly-aways for frizzy hair days. Even better, it is mast cell stabilizing! Just use a tiny amount and smooth on the top layer of hair. No, it doesn’t smell like broccoli. 🙂 It just has a slightly nutty smell. I store mine in the fridge to keep it from going rancid.
Therapeutica Orthopedic Sleeping Pillow – measure according to directions for proper size
Living Life to the Fullest with EDS PT Strengthening Program by Kevin Muldowny
Kinesiotape – Therapist’s Choice is a more affordable brand that works well
Thoracic/Rib Cage brace
Activator – Chiropractic Adjustment Tool – the 6 level type works better than the J-Tech (spring wears out quick on this one)
Makeup, Personal Care Products:
Primal Life Organics – wonderful skin care company with non-toxic products packaged without plastics. Skin care, soap, hair care, moisturizing, makeup. No fragrances. They do use essential oils. Some products without essential oils.
100%Pure– I love their makeup, shampoo, soap, and skin care. They do use essential oils. Their products are amazing, and they have a very easy, no questions return policy if you react to anything or just don’t like it for any reason. (UPDATE: Some of the 100% Pure products have undergone formula changes. And some of those changes are no longer MCAS friendly. I’m currently looking into good alternatives. For now, please check the ingredients in any 100% Pure product before purchasing.)

Skin Care -Topical Products:
Organic Rose Hip Oil – Contains retinoids (form of Vitamin A) that may help stabilize mast cells. Very light.
Organic, unrefined, Grade A Shea Butter – option for those who aren’t allergic to latex (shea is in latex family). Very thick.
Organic cold pressed Mango butter – can occassionally cause challenges with latex allergy. Thick.
Toothpaste has been the hardest product to find without toxic and mast cell activating ingredients. The non-toxic ones often have xanthan gum, carrageenan, clove cinnamon, or sodium benzoate.
I searched for 3 years to find a mast cell friendly toothpaste option. Finally found one!
Primal Life Organics tooth powder (get peppermint or spearmint, NOT cinnamon. Bubblegum or orange may be ok for those less sensitive) This is a great, clean product.
Tooth Whitening System – These are natural products and safe for mast cell activation.

Probiotic Options for Mast Cell Activation Syndrome/Histamine Intolerance
These probiotics are all histamine lowering or histamine neutral strains. They do not contain the histamine raising strains.
If you have SIBO, go slowly when trying probiotics as even low histamine strains aren’t always tolerated.
Soil based probiotics do not need to be in a delayed-release capsule. Regular probiotics do need to be in a delayed release capsule. Otherwise the probiotics die when exposed to stomach acid.
Overnight shipping is usually not necessary, per the manufacturer. Place the probiotic in the fridge when it arrives and allow it to cool down before opening to bottle to protect the live organisms.
