After wearing many different natural deodorants over the years and always being slightly disappointed, I decided to strike out on my own and create one that addressed all of my needs - moisturizing, soothing, non-toxic, nothing artificial, and, most of all, effective! This all-natural deodorant is something I've been formulating for a very long time - it's a tricky thing to get right!
Plant Pits contains arrowroot powder and baking soda to help neutralize odor, as well as aloe, mango butter and coconut oil to keep skin soft and soothed. Essentials oils of ylang ylang, vanilla, rose, and sweet orange lend a subtle, sweet floral fragrance.
To use: apply a pea-sized amount to pits, and then continue to live your best, funk-free life!
Contains: Beeswax, mango butter, coconut oil, arrowroot powder, baking soda, aloe vera, vitamin E, essential oils of ylang ylang, vanilla, rose absolute, and sweet orange
**A note about natural deodorants: when switching from chemical deodorants to all-natural, some people experience what is called a "detox period", during which their armpits may feel sensitive and a bit irritated. This is thought to be a symptom of the body adjusting to the natural elimination of toxins. It maybe also be a slight sensitivity/adjustment period to using baking soda. If your pits feel a little irritated at first, try waiting about 30 minutes after showering to apply the deodorant, and give it a little time to adjust. Of course, if irritation persists or worsens, discontinue use.**
