This super concentrated, non-oily, clay-based deodorant has a fresh, unisex scent. Just one swipe gives a long-lasting but not overpowering scent. Home made in small batches and all natural - no aluminum, parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, silica, talc or triclosan.
Directions for use: Hold against skin for a few seconds to soften (if very cold, quickly blast surface of deodorant with a hair dryer to soften), then gently swipe once or twice under each arm and allow to dry. Reapply if needed. Some product may transfer to clothing if too much is applied - if this should happen, simply pre-treat stain and wash as usual.
Please note: If your body is used to chemical-laden anti-perspirants/deodorants, it may go through a detox phase which could make your armpits feel more sweaty and smelly than usual. This is caused by your body trying to rid itself of built up toxins and does not mean that you cannot successfully use our deodorant. If this should happen, swipe a bit of organic apple cider vinegar (with the "mother" intact, like Bragg's) a couple times a day under each arm to aid this detox phase. Once your body adjusts to our all natural deodorant, it will naturally begin to sweat and smell less than usual and less deodorant will be needed. Discontinue use if irritation occurs for more than two weeks.
Ingredients: Kaolin Clay, Shea Butter, Tapioca Starch, Beeswax, Palm Stearic Acid, Coconut Oil and Baking Soda.
Essential Oils: Tea Tree, Hungarian Lavender, Oregano, Lemongrass and Key Lime.
Summer W. Lynchburg VA I discovered your products this weekend at the Forest Farmer's Market and I LOVE them! I purchased a sample of the deodorant, the bug spray and a lip tint. Yesterday, I put all 3 to the test! My husband and I went for an 8 mile hike and I wore the deodorant, and it was amazing! I was concerned about a possibility of odor but there was none! The bug spray was also amazing! We had to reapply several times due to perspiration but it was worth it. We could always tell when it was time to reapply because the bugs came back. I loved the fact that it kept them away and did it all without the sting of store bought, chemical laden bug sprays! Also, don't know if it's supposed to work against ticks, but the only place my husband got a tick was on his heel where he couldn't spray the repellent! The lip tint kept my lips moist the whole hike:) I love this too since I don't wear a lot of make up but do like a little color!
Keith B., Cape Cod, MA - My wife and I had the luck of working at a farmer's market during Darlene's last summer on the cape. She is a magician at making wonderful all natural beauty products! Her soap is to die for, but her other products are great too! The pet friendly natural bug spray is perfect if there are little ones around you don't want to get anywhere near DEET. Tested and approved on good old cape cod, AKA mosquito and tick country, USA. Unfortunately, we have to mail order her products now, but very much worth it! Thank you Darlene!
