DeodoRite by Native Remedies Review

I was lying in bed next to someone I occasionally hit the sheets with, and after several hours of extraneous activities I decided I was due for a deodorant touch-up (thanks to my apple cider vinegar trick I was BO free at the time, but totally paranoid that if a few more hours of heavy sweating took place I’d reach the danger zone. As a preventive measure a deodorant touch-up was a must)! While it was a daringly unsexy move to make while he was lying right beside me I figured it would be even more unsexy to start smelling like a toxic armpit, right?

I mumbled a casual “Sorry, gotta freshen up” as I reached over to my nightstand and busted out my Pit Putty. Sexily I slathered it on while doing a slow mo hair whip. Oooooh yeah. Applying deodorant never looked sexier, or so I hoped.

Then he uttered the words no smelly girl wants to EVER hear “Oh, I don’t wear deodorant”

This could not be true… seriously? What?! I’ve known this guy for three years and I just discovered he forgoes a main necessity in my life! My world revolves around layering 30 different deodorants so it was hard for me to fathom a person not wearing deodorant! “You’re kidding me, you don’t wear deodorant at all??”

“Nope”

“Not even in the summer?!?! I would smell awful if I didn’t wear deodorant!” …Little does he know I smell awful even when I do wear deodorant, but I plan to keep that on the DL.

“No, I like the smell of myself, it’s manly but I don’t stink. I shower daily and drink lots of water so I’m fine”

Sure, he did have a bit of a man essence going on, but he didn’t smell like BO which naturally made me jealous. For a split second I wanted to punch him in the face instead of make out with him. To really make matters worse I discovered he was one of those people. The kind of person that spews the ideals of ‘as long as you shower, eat right, drink plenty of water you should smell fresh as a daisy’! Those elitists assholes. People who don’t have BO issues don’t get it, it’s not that simple!

Perched on my couch later that night with a bottle of wine I started thinking about my body, no, not his body on my body. Sheesh. I was thinking about what kind of havoc must be going on internally within my body. If you read this blog you know that I am a train wreck- chronic yeast infections, acne, BO… you’re probably surprised I even had someone in bed. I’ve often figured there must be a connection, some sort of army yeast overgrowth overtaking my entire body causing me to be a human cesspool of toxic waste that affects my vagina, skin and underarms… I’ve researched it! Last summer I went raw. Gave up most sugar (I fully admit I still drank caramel macchiatos, if someone can find me a sugar free and raw variation for a caramel macchiatos I will PAY you). Moral of the story is the entire summer I worked hard at cutting out sugars, crap processed food and nothing changed. Still battled acne. Still battled yeast infections. Still battled unpleasant underarms. With no validation in my theory to maintain the raw lifestyle I eventually gave up the kale smoothies. All I had to show for being 3 months raw was a stomach that was slightly flatter and a dresser I painted in attempts to take my mind off eating candy. I chalk painted the hell out of that dresser too. All my rage and sugar cravings went into that little gem.

One glass of wine in I suddenly remembered a product called DeodoRite by the company Native Remedies, I stumbled across it while doing some shopping on Abesmarket.com. It claimed to help eliminate excess perspiration and body odor by aiding the liver work better and eliminating toxins. I’ve done everything for my BO externally so I decided to go back to the theory that something is going on inside of my body.

Here’s what DeodoRite claims to do, you can read all the info about it here: http://www.nativeremedies.com/products/deodorite-control-body-odor.html

DeodoRite temporarily:
Relieves all unpleasant body odors
Reduces excessive perspiration
Cleanses the body of toxins
Improves liver functioning
Promotes efficient elimination of waste products

Now I am not one to advocate tossing back random pills. Sure I take my vitamins, and during the summer I take Chlorophyll to help my BO (which does mildly help)! But other than that I am not a pill popper and always research any vitamin I take. It’s safe to say I was leery in regard to taking DeodoRite. Most of their ingredients I had never heard of! For instance what is Galium???? Apparently it’s a plant.

Here’s the ingredients of Deodorite: DeodoRite is a 100% homeopathic formula and contains the following ingredients: Calc sulph 6X HPUS, Carduus mar 3X HPUS, Galium 3X HPUS, Mag phos 8X HPUS, Merc solub 30C HPUS, Silicea 8X HPUS.

I spent some time researching Native Remedies and the ingredients in DeodoRite. While the ingredients are mostly plant based you still have to be careful because natural/plant based/homeopathic doesn’t always equal safe, especially if you are taking other prescription drugs or vitamins. Often times certain supplements/vitamins/prescription meds cannot mix, so it’s always a safe bet to check with your health care provider. With my initial research DeodoRite seemed safe to my untrained eye (apparently I don’t take my own advice of checking with my health care provider). If you look up some of the ingredients they are just fancy names for Milk Thistle and such, but I still decided to take a pass on trying DeodoRite, not because my research turned up anything bad but rather because I was skeptical. Seemed too good to be true and I couldn’t find a lot of reviews about the product beyond the reviews on the Native Remedies… can you say shady?? Thus why I am taking the time to write this novel of a review.

Several weeks later I came back to the Native Remedies site after an epic deodorant fail mid-day. I smelled horrible, was annoyed, and angry. Combine all those emotions it made for an excellent combo to force me into making a desperate purchase! It was totally one of those badass ‘F-it moments’. The DeodoRite was on sale at Abesmarket for $29.00, and I had a 20% off coupon and it was free shipping. Bam. Ordered placed! I ended up paying about 23 Bucks for 180 pills. I highly recommend ordering from Abes Market, they offer better sales than the Native Remedies site.

When my order arrived I didn’t take the DeodoRite because my F-it badass moment was over and the skeptic in me came back. So there those little pills full of promise and hope sat… until a glass of wine fueled my courage. I got off my couch and decided to bust those suckers open. Fuck that booty call who doesn’t need deodorant! I’ll show him! Show him what, I wasn’t sure, but I was determined to prove something.

I started off by taking 1 pill in the morning and 1 pill at night. The bottle says for adults to take 2-3 pills 2-3 times a day. I opted to start with a low dose at first.

Well, 1 pill in the morning and 1 at night did nothing. I almost returned them. Instead I upped it to 2 pills in the morning and 2 at night, and after several days of that dosing I was amazed. I had no ill side effects and I was almost BO free!!!!! Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I could magically go without deodorant or anything crazy, but it was such a relief to only layer two different deodorants in the morning and still be fairly fresh by sundown. At the end of the day I’d have a bit of funk, yet it wasn’t anything out of control. For the first time I felt like a normal person. It worked consistently. Everyday I smelled great. Suddenly I could go about my day without worrying if I needed to touch up my deodorant.

This sounds like a fairy tale… I know, you’re on the edge of your seat thinking I hit the jackpot! Ehhh… well, settle down because after several weeks of use I noticed I was starting to pit out again. I figured my body was becoming accustomed to the DeodoRite. It’s a curse of mine. When I find a deodorant or supplement that helps it usually stops working on me after several weeks. This is why I never get too excited when I think I’ve found something that ‘works’.

So I upped my DeodoRite’s to 2 in the morning, 2 in the evening, and 2 at night. This did the trick, it started working again and I was back to being 80% BO free. …Until that stopped working several weeks later.

Out of annoyance I stopped taking the DeodoRite for a few days then started back up and this helped. Now I make sure to take breaks from DeodoRite every few weeks. Sometimes my breaks are only a few days and other times I give it up for a week or so. Then I’ll start back on the DeodorRite, 2 twice a day, and work back up to the 2 three times a day when needed.

Basically the effects kind of wean off as your body becomes accustom to DeodoRite.

No matter what, even when it ‘stops working’ it still helps a little, as in I don’t smell AS bad as I normally do. But when it’s working, man, it WORKS and it will work consistently, until, well it stops working.

Another thing I noticed is that once you find a dose that works for you if you skip a dose you’ll start to stink immediately. The pills are super tiny, so I keep a few in my purse just in case I forget a dose or I’m out and about when I need to take my next dose. The effects aren’t prolonged. Once you stop taking these pills you’ll start to smell back your old self right away. Notice the site makes a point to say it ‘TEMPORARILY’ helps. This is not a cure. No long-term effects.

I already bought a backup bottle, even if I decide not to continue to use them regularly I will keep them around to take if I have an event or some sexy date to go on. Also it takes about 2 days before you see results.

I can’t vouch for their long-term safety or anything as I am no doctor- nor am I sleeping with a doctor otherwise I’d ask him. However I’ve had no issue with any strange side effects and I’ve been taking them for almost two months now. While I’m leery to recommend a supplement like this, I would say if you do your research and you’ve found nothing externally is working to help eliminate your odor these are worth a try. I’ve had decent success with them, and when they work I feel so ridiculously free! Being BO free is amazing, makes me feel like I want to run around wearing sleeveless tops and stick my armpit in people’s face. Ok, so I wouldn’t go that far but if you suffer from any body odor you know how exciting it is to not have to worry about whether you stink or not.

If you try them let me know!

Moe’s Apothecary Zinc Cream Deodorant Review

Currently I’ve been wearing a combo of Healing Scents Deodorant Cream and topping it off with Bubble and Bee Orange Vanilla Pit Putty. However it seems my pits have been getting immune to this combo, because it hasn’t been working as well as it used to, but still works better than anything else I have used as of late…. UNTIL…..

Moe’s Apothecary Zinc Cream Deodorant. My new favorite Deodorant!

I was looking for a deodorant that had zinc in it, but in a Orange Vanilla scent (I tried the unscented Bubble and Bee Pit Putty with zinc, and like anything else unscented I totally pitted out, ugh! P.S. Review of Bubble and Bee’s Pit Primer is soon to come)! My obsessive nature lead me back onto Etsy where I discovered the Moe’s Apothecary Shop. On my screen I saw a picture of a jarred deodorant, and the heading read: ‘Zinc Cream Deodorant. 100% Natural, It really works’. I wasn’t sure, because it’s rare something works on my rebel pits, but when I found out the owner would make me a Orange Coconut scent I quickly made the purchase before I could talk myself out of spending more money on yet another deodorant.

Image

Ingredients to Moe’s Apothecary Zinc Cream Deodorant: Zinc Oxide, Kaolin Clay, Arrowroot Powder, Essential oils, Organic Fragrances, Small amount of Baking Soda, Organic Coconut oil, Organic Shea Butter

The day the Moe’s Apothecary Zinc Cream Deodorant arrived, I had already applied Healing Scents Cream Deodorant by the time I got the mail. So I went ahead and added my usual layer of Pit Putty (ok, it’s two layers), I then I added a layer of Moe’s Apothecary Zinc Cream Deodorant and went about my day. I’m not ballsy enough to try a new deodorant out on its own at first.

…..At the end of the day I smelled fresh. I was a little shocked because I hadn’t even done my usual Pit Putty touch up mid day. I’m hard to impress, so at first I figured maybe my pits had randomly decided to behave that day and it had nothing to do with my new deodorant addition?

Next day I decided to use Healing Scents Cream Deo and the Moe’s Apothecary Zinc Cream Deo. No Pit Putty (which is a huge deal)! Again I smelled fresh at the end of the day, and even until the next morning!

Then I got ballsy and started using ONLY the Moe’s Zinc Cream Deodorant…. and low and behold I manage to stay pretty fresh all day. Say what? If I were a 15 year old I would have said: “ This is cray-cray!’, but since I’m 31 I actually said ‘What the f***, this is crazy!’. It’s pretty much impossible for me to wear ONE deodorant and stay fresh all day AND through the next day. I still prefer to layer it with my Pit Putty, simply because I like powder-y finish Pit Putty Leaves behind because it makes me feel extra dry, plus the Pit Putty is a little more heavy on the scent, which I happen to like, if I’m not smelling orange-y throughout the day I get scared. However, Moe’s Apothecary Zinc Cream Deodorant totally stands on it’s own and can be worn alone.

One BIG test I always put my deodorants through is finding out if it can eliminate odor on contact. I live in fear that I will get stuck out in a heat wave while I’m on a date. I’ll be standing there in a cute sun dress pitting out because my deodorant will suddenly revolt against me and my sex life… (we’ve all been there when out of nowhere your deodorant gives out on you… you may not be on a hot date when it happens, but it could happen)! Being assured that I have a few deodorants that are great for odor prevention, and also a few that are great for odor elimination on contact is key to me. For the test I put on a random deodorant I had lying around, and within a few hours I didn’t smell so sweet. Perfect! It was prime time to test and see if the Moe’s Apothecary Zinc Cream Deodorant would banish pre-existing odor…. *drum roll please* …. It did pretty darn well! It instantly ridded me of most of my odor and left me with a light and subtle scent of Orange/coconut. It wasn’t a complete clean slate, but it did better at freshening me up than most deodorants. Most of the time if you try to layer a deodorant over your pitted out pits, it makes things smell worse. This made things smell better!

Another important thing to me when reviewing deodorants is texture. The nice thing about Moe’s Zinc Deodorant is that while it’s a cream it goes on dry but smooth. It’s not too wet, or sticky, and it rubs in nicely. If you over apply, like I do, be sure to give it an extra rub down because it can leave your pits a bit white due to the zinc. It’s nothing major though, and a good reason not to be a deodorant whore and over apply like I do.

All in all this deodorant is my new obsession. I really recommend this to anyone who has annoying pits like me. I’m already planning to order a 4oz size for $12 dollars. The 2oz size is 6 dollars. Even with shipping included I think the price is very reasonable.

For those of you who are wondering about scent options here’s a list of the scents offered-. Rosemary/Lavender, Coconut/Lime, Peppermint/Eucalyptus, Orange/Bergamot, Cederwood/Bay and unscented.

I personally would LOVE to see a Lemon and Clove option as that’s another awesome combo that helps with odor (plus I could mix it with the Lemon Clove Pit Putty!) But like I always mention…. when ordering I always think it’s important to realize sometimes certain essential oils/fragrances don’t mix well with your chemistry, so sometimes it’s not the formula failing you. You’ll have far better success if you already have an idea of what essential oils work for your body. If you don’t know what essential oils work best for your body chemistry I’d recommend ordering samples of different scent combo’s! It took me forever to discover ANYTHING lavender, peppermint, or lemongrass seemed to make me smell 10x worse.

Also, I want to mention that shipping did take a while, however the shop owner states that it is just her making the products and it can take up to 5-10 before your product is ready to ship. It’s worth the wait though!

I wanted to put this review up in time for summer… cheers to hopefully being BO free all summer! If you try it I would love to hear what you think!

Natural Deodorant Reviews- Pit Putty, Healing-Scents, In Love with Body Care, and Relax Deodorant

It’s a joke among friends and family that I should be paid to be a deodorant tester… I am literally obsessed with trying natural Deodorants (you can read one of my first run ins with natural deodorant here: https://glambomb.wordpress.com/2010/06/06/the-battle-of-antiperspirant-vs-lavilin-underarm-deodorant-defeat-the-b-o/ ), and for the last few years I’ve probably tried 60+ different natural deodorants.

If you’re questioning my dedication here’s a picture of just ONE of my deodorant stashes. I have many more drawers, boxers, make-up bag stashes littering my entire bedroom and bathroom.

Obviously it’s been a journey exploring natural deodorants, and I think the biggest tip I could offer anyone is this is a process of trail and error. I run into more deodorants that don’t work than do work. But the more you try you start to learn what your body likes, and now that I know what works best for my body chemistry I am finding more and more deodorants that work for me.

For me I’ve learned:

  1. My body chemistry mixes horribly with Unscented, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Mint, and Tea Tree. I do best with lemon, citrus and spicy essential oils/scents.
  2. Baking Soda is a must for me in any formula.
  3. Spray deodorants are not effective for me.
  4. No matter what I have to re-apply/touch up during the day to keep odor at bay (hey I’m honest, I battle BO!).
  5. I do best when I layer different deodorants. I know it sounds ridiculous, but come on I gotta do something with all my dozens and dozens of deodorants! My layering routine changes/rotates, some days I’ll layer 3 different deodorants, and some days I’ll layer 6 different deodorants (I have a sex and a out dancing layer routine that is dynamite…. It’s a no fail godsend!). But I have a few deodorants that are my secret weapon, which I’ll share with you!

If you happen to read this and have a question about a certain deodorant you are looking into feel free to hit me up, chances are I’ve tried it!

Bubble and Bee- http://www.bubbleandbee.com

No matter what deodorants I am layering I always finish off and touch up throughout the day with Bubble and Bee Lemon and Clove with Baking Soda Pit Putty. I love the scent- mild lemon spice, but it strangely mixes well with my sweet perfume, but better than the scent is it’s outstanding performance.

I can confidently say that out of the 60+ natural deodorants I have tried over the years this little gem is the ONLY one that keeps me dry. I don’t have much of a wetness issue, but in summer everyone gets a little sweaty. If you happen to get a little puddley once you apply this it quickly absorbs any moister (and funk) to make you feel fresh right away. A lot of natural deodorants are full of coco and shae butters leaving you with that overly moisturizing/greasy feeling (which I can’t stand). There is nothing worse then applying a deodorant especially on a hot day that feels too moisturizing/slippery, it just adds to that gross sweaty feeling. Pit putty has an odd consistency compared to most natural deodorants. When it’s at room temp it’s kind of hard/powdery clumpy when you apply, and even when Pit Putty gets a little melty in hot weather it’s more of a thicker firm melty?… but once you can rub it in it automatically spreads and dries with no greasy feeling while absorbing wetness.

Yes, if do some research you’ll find some people complain about the white crumbly mess this can leave behind. It works best if you apply it and then rub it in with your fingers. I don’t see this as a deal breaker; I mean I’d rather rub my fingers over my armpit than have BO! However, I will say that this deodorant can be messy! I apply my deodorant in my bedroom, and stuff crumbles all over my hardwood floors. Stephanie (the owner of Bubble and Bee) mentions some tips on making this less messy such as don’t over apply and keep it in the refrigerator (prevents the coconut oil from getting too warm so it keeps the pit putty more solid/harder and less crumbling). Well, these tips are GREAT, but if you’re like me… a self proclaimed over applier of product then these tips aren’t very realistic! That being said I’ve briefly considered a mini fridge in my room to store this deodorant because it is so much less messy when it’s kept at a colder temperature… but that would be over the top, and I thin people would really question my sanity!

Beyond making a mess on my bedroom floor (which I clean up daily with a dust buster) I think the major con of Pit Putty is if you are like me and carry your deodorant around with you for touchups throughout the day… this isn’t the best choice due to messy factor (however that’s never stopped me!). Last summer I was on a date at a guys house (he was cooking for me, awwww), and I raced to the bathroom for a sneaky deodorant touch up (I felt a make-out session coming on), well Pit Putty ended up all over his bathroom floor and in a mad rush I was trying to pick up the little crumbles which prolonged my bathroom visit making me take a suspiciously long time. When I came out of the bathroom I wanted to announce “No I wasn’t taking a crap, I was reapplying deodorant that got all over your floor and I was trying to clean up…” but that sounded like a ridiculous excuse!  The best tip is if you’re using Pit Putty in warmer months is to barely turn the deodorant up, keep it almost level with the sides of the deodorant container and this helps prevent it from crumbling.

Stephanie also offers cream deodorants which eliminate the mess but work just as well as the Pit Putty Sticks for most, I tried the Lemon and Clove Cream version and while I like it, I prefer the stick- keeps me fresher longer. I just deal with the mess, and you also have to keep in mind my mom uses this deodorant- one swipe on each pit and while she has mentioned the fact it is a bit crumbly she doesn’t have much of a mess issue with it like I do.

The awesome thing about Bubble and Bee is that they understand not every deodorant formula/scent is going to work with your body chemistry, so they will keep sending you a new deodorant until you find one that works to keep your BO at bay. I’ve honestly tried every single scent/formula of Bubble and Bee (they offer Pit Putty’s, Creams, Sprays, and bee’s wax sticks!), and most of them didn’t work for me. Stephanie probably got sick of my whiney e-mails, but she always responded and was so helpful. I would have given up on Bubble and Bee right off the bat because the first Pit Putty I tried did not work for me, it’s all about trial and error and Stephanie realizes this and she makes that awful trial and error process as smooth (and stink free) as possible.  So what do you have to lose?

Healing Scents- http://healing-scents.com/natural_deodorant.html

I discovered Healing-scents.com a year ago or so by accident. I think their website is a bit confusing but it’s chuck full of information and a great selection of natural products.

They offer the same deodorant in four different formulas- Cream, roll on, spray, and powder. They’re all the same scent, which is basic a herbal/earthy/natural scent.  Side note: The stick and the cream are the SAME… it’s a thick cream, but you can either get it in the stick or the pot. However the cream is cheaper, so I buy the cream but again a lot of people have issues with applying deodorant with their fingertips and prefer the stick. I’m too cheap for that!

The deodorant states that you should give it up to three days to really work for you, and I found this to be true. By day three it really kicks in, so give it a fair chance.

Consistency/texture wise I am not a HUGE fan, like I mentioned it is very thick and a bit difficult to spread, but the plus side is it doesn’t have a greasy feeling too it. If you apply too much you’ll wind up with a gross thick coated feeling pits, so I’ve learned a little goes a long way with this stuff (which is obviously very hard for me and my heavy handed applications!). I tend to use this for a week or so in my routine and then skip a week, simply because my body seems to get used to a deodorant and then stops working, and I really don’t want my body to get immune to this deodorant because it’s really tough on odor and works awesome!

In Love With Body Care- http://inlovewithbodycare.com

I ended up buying 3 different scents and formulas of In Love Deodorants after hearing rave reviews (My credit card hates me!). I ordered the original, the Est Soothe in freshmint, and the Est in Greece (citrus).

Out of all of them I liked the Est Greece scent and it’s performance, it’s tough on odor! The trouble with this is I cannot use it regularly because it irritates my underarms, which is odd considering I don’t have sensitive pits in the least. While this doesn’t leave a ‘rash’ it simply makes my underarms feel raw if I use it for more than two days in a row. This really bums me out because it works exceptionally well. So I save this for my sex or out dancing deodorant layering routine!

I also had ordered the Est Freshmint Soothe, and it stated the new soothe formula was for sensitive skin, however this also made my pits feel sore, just maybe not as bad. I didn’t think it worked as well, but that also could have been the scent as mint scents don’t seem to blend with my chemistry very well.

The original didn’t bother my pits (I also liked the consistency of the original much better, it’s more silky and invisible where the other two formulas are a pit thick/sticky and needs a few to dry and sink into the skin), but this original unscented also didn’t help tame any BO, but generally anything unscented does not work for me. They offer the original (silk) in the Greece and freshmint scent, so I think I may try the Silk formula in the Greece scent and see what happens.

I would recommend giving this a try though, but I would probably start out trying the Soothe formula and going from there.

Relax Deodorant- http://www.etsy.com/listing/83160515/you-choose-scent-deodorant-2oz

I came across this on Etsy.com and the ONLY reason I bought it was because I was able to mix my own scent and I wanted/ordered a blend of Lemon, Clove, Ginger and Bay Rum. Formula wise it didn’t seem to be anything special at first glance- your normal mix of baking soda, beeswax and so on. I’ve tried dozens of cream deodorants that sounded exactly like this.

When it arrived I could BARELY smell the scent, which honestly made me mad. I felt like I got gypped on the essential oil front, so I chucked it in my stash as disappointment took over.

Recently I went to a funeral so a combination of stress, and a polyester black jacket left me totally pitted out by the end of the day. Generally when I pit out there is no ‘covering’ it up or neutralizing it, I just have to start from scratch and wash my underarms (even with my number 1 favorite deodorant- Pit Putty, if I pit out Pit Putty can’t completely freshen me up, it does a better job at preventing ordor). However I was feeling lazy, and I grabbed this Relax Deodorant and rubbed it on as an experiment. To my absolute shock it completely ridded me of my BO and left me with the lightest of light scents, and then I applied a layer of Pit Putty and I was completely fresh and odor free the rest of the evening. No odor crept  through!

The next day I used only Relax Deodorant on freshly cleaned pits (I do like to initially test deodorants by themselves without my layering routine) and it kept me pretty fresh for half of the day without reapplying (which is actually a big feat), and the second I started to get a little funky I reapplied Relax Deodorant and it took away all traces of  odor.

So I am pretty obsessed with this. It’s the only deodorant I have ever run across that will eliminate odor if I’ve pitted out and the damage is done. For anyone who has BO issues you know how valuable this is, and even if you don’t major pitting out issues we all have days where our deodorants majorly fail! This little guy is AWESOME to keep in a purse, locker, or wherever in case you’re in need of a total touch up/refresher!

Now I am not sure if the effectiveness of this is contributed to my Lemon, Clove, Ginger, Bay Rum concoction… a lot of the blends/scents they offer are fragrance oils and I blended mine mostly with essential oils which are better for battling odor, plus I know what essential oils work best with my body chemistry so this could be another factor in why it works so well for me. But I strongly suggest giving Relax Deodorant a try and blending you own scents of Essential Oils if you are familiar with EO’s- or give one of the MANY blend/scents a try! Plus at the affordable price you can’t go wrong.

….In conclusion I hope this helped some of you out. Keep in mind I am VERY hard to please when it comes to deodorants, almost nothing is ‘strong’ enough for me so I thought it was time to praise the ones that work well for me in hopes it can help someone else out!
