I’ve been on the search for the perfect hard working deodorant for a really long time. I feel like I’ve tried them all and never really been happy with any of them. A lot of the more “natural” deodorants smell great when you put them on but when you start actually sweating you end up just plain stinky. This deodorant is different. I first tried this on the morning that I went to pick up a couple hundred pound wood stove that we had to pick up and lift into the truck. It was a hot day to begin with so by the time the stove was finally back home I was sweating buckets but you know what, I still smelled so good!!! This stuff really works, even by the end of that day there wasn’t a hint of stink.
Solid 1oz pucks that come without all the extra packaging. We’ve put them in wax paper bags and wrapped them just for shipping. To use: lightly rub the puck over your underarm. You only need a really thin layer. That’s it, you are ready to rock and roll. If you are new to using deodorants without aluminum or paraben it may take a little bit of time to transition. Try using a Underarm Detox bar to help clean out those pores and treat those pits right.
Since this deodorant comes unpacked we suggest finding a container to store it in. I use a clean glass jam jar. Your storage container needs to be air tight since the aloe in the deodorant can start to evaporate making it harder to “glide” the deodorant on. If this happens just give it a little spritz to re-hydrate and create that easy glide application.
Available in either: Unscented or Desert Rose and Citrus. Both smell beautifully clean.
