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. Probiotics are contraindicated in SIBO, except soil based probiotics.

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.

Deodorant:
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. 

Hair Serum:
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.

Bath Soaks/Home Spa Products:
Ancient Minerals Magnesium Bath Flakes – These are magnesium chloride bath flakes. Great for relaxing muscles and calming down before bed.
Aztec Secrets Indian Healing Clay – This is a really pure bentonite clay for detoxing the skin and tightening pores

Toothpaste:
Toothpaste has been the hardest product to find without toxic and mast cell activating ingredients. The non-toxic ones often have guar gum, 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.

Fragrance/Essential Oils:
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

Fragrance Free Non-toxic Cleaners and Dishwashing Detergent
Seventh Generation Fragrance Free Dishwasher Detergent Packs – enzymatic based that actually cleans the dishes; I use white vinegar diluted 50% with water in a glass container on top rack instead of glass rinse aid
Seventh Generation Glass and Surface Cleaner
Baking Soda – for cleaning sinks and tubs; mix with a little white vinegar for cleaning chrome
Seventh Generation Fabric Softener Sheets, Free & Clear
Fragrance Free Tide – this is what I’m currently using because none of the all natural products are cleaning well. Let me know if you find a good alternative!

Non Toxic Cleaners (with natural essential oils)
Seventh Generation Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner – I use the spray to disinfection the kitchen. I take the wipes when I fly to wipe down my area on plane. I take the spray to hotels to disinfect the room.
Seventh Generation Toilet Bowel Cleaner*
