Safe, natural, and effective deodorant that doesn’t irritate your skin! This organic and all natural deodorant will leave you smelling fresh and feel dry without blocking your body's natural ways to keep cool and rid of toxins. This is not an antiperspirant. The goal of natural deodorants is to absorb moisture and control odor causing bacteria. This natural deodorants won't stop perspiration, which is actually a good thing. Your body needs to keep cool and perspiration is the key. Perspiration helps your body to maintain proper temperature and keep you from overheating. It also expels toxins, which supports proper immune function and helps prevent diseases related to toxic overload. I am using essential oils and other natural ingredients like baking soda, arrowroot, and coconut oil to absorb sweat and kill odor-causing bacteria.
*Organic Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Coconut Oil: full of auric acid that attacks bacteria and protects against odor-causing bacteria. It also kills fungi and yeast. And coconut oil is a great moisturizing agent. Plus it's a natural high source of vitamin E and is packed with beneficial fatty acids.
*Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda) has detoxifying effects that help neutralize acidic or alkaline properties in the body. It absorbs odors effectively.
*Arrowroot powder: absorbs moisture and stands up to acidic mixes. It is extracted in simpler, more traditional methods, w/o the use of high heat or harsh chemicals.
*Shea Butter and optional zinc oxide to make this soothing and add some more odor fighting. Let me know if you want zinc oxide added to your order. Soothing shea butter is a great option because it's not greasy and absorbs quickly. it’s reported to have anti-inflammatory, emollient, and humectant properties.
*Lemon essential oil for its ability to fight bacteria and make this deodorant smell great! It also improves lymph drainage and cleanses the body.
