Description

Tired of worrying about the presence of aluminum and chemicals in your antiperspirant? The debate continues about whether aluminum increases the risk for Alzheimer's disease, and if Parabens are associated with breast cancer. Make the switch and try a deodorant containing only natural, safe ingredients known for their moisture absorbing and deodorizing qualities.

Containing arrowroot powder and baking soda, this deodorant stick does absorb moisture, and does its job for a typical day. Everyone's body chemistry and activity level are different, so some people may need to reapply before the day's end. If doing hard physical work or under extreme stress, a deodorant may not totally eliminate sweating under the arms, but not being an actual antiperspirant that is to be expected.

The active ingredient used in most antiperspirants is aluminum. Aluminum minimizes wetness by blocking the pores which prevents sweat from escaping. Our bodies are designed to sweat and it may be harmful to force the body to hold in harmful toxins that should be excreted. Remember that diet has a lot to do with how much we sweat and how that sweat smells. The old-fashioned drink consisting of raw apple cider vinegar and honey (1 tbsp. each) added to a glass of water and drank once or twice a day can help the body absorb toxins. As far as the concern with aluminum contributing to the risk of alzheimers and cancer, The FDA continues to have the "wait and see" attitude until definitive studies are released.

Two other ingredients to look for in commercial products are propylene glycol and phthalates. Propylene glycol is a petroleum based material that is added to soften and give that glide which makes skin care products more easily applicable to the skin. Phthalates are another class of chemicals used to dissolve ingredients so that they blend efficiently. The argument for these ingredients is that they are not in large enough amounts to be a safety issue. The concern is that we use these products every day, therefore these chemicals are always present in our tissues. Kidney problems, cell mutations, hormone disrupters...why worry. Made with all natural ingredients, this deodorant cream has its own nice, smooth consistency that goes on smooth and absorbs quickly.
Should you notice any little particles on the insides of your clothes, this is from the baking soda and easily brushes off.

Arrowroot powder is used for its smooth texture and effectiveness at absorbing moisture.

Aluminum free baking soda also helps absorb moisture, but it is a very effective deodorizer as well.

*******Some people are sensitive to baking soda in that it irritates their skin. The pH of sodium bicarbonate is around 8.3 and skin has a pH of around 5.5, therefore this can cause sore armpits for some people. Some people have no problem with sensitivity but if you think this may be the case for you there are options. We can easily reduce the amount in your cream or substitute.
Food Grade Diatomaceous earth is a natural, easy on the skin source of silica which absorbs moisture and toxins. It will change the color of your deodorant from white to a darker color.
Just let me know at checkout if you prefer to use the original recipe with the baking soda or if you'd prefer the diatomaceous earth instead of the baking soda or you'd like to use half and half of each.
For some people it has been observed that though diatomaceous earth is an effective alternative to the baking soda, the deodorant may need to be reapplied before the day is done.**********


Coconut oil and shea butter are the two oil bases used. The anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties of coconut oil along with the way it softens the skin, have earned coconut oil such a positive reputation that people don't seem to mind dealing with its tendency to melt in warm temperatures. Coconut oil begins to liquefy at around 76 degrees and gets harder in colder temperatures. Beeswax is added to help keep the cream firm, but if your home tends to become very warm during the summer months, you may want to place the jar in the refrigerator to firm it back up. On cooler days, you may find the consistency harder than usual. It will soften upon body contact.
Whether in a solid or loose state the quality of the product is not affected.

Shea butter is a wonderful moisturizer and blends very nicely with coconut oil. A rich, therapeutic butter, shea is gentle on the sensitive skin under the arms. Shea butter also helps add body to the cream.

*****************Allergy to coconut oil? Allergic to propolis in beeswax?*******************
Using shea butter is a nice alternative. Just let me know if you need the deodorant made with all shea butter and no coconut oil. Such alternatives can easily work around sensitivities.**********************

***********Should you be pregnant or suffer with seizures from epilepsy, please let me know and we will leave out the rosemary and sage essential oils. Lavender would be a safe alternative.************

Being both coconut oil and shea butter have a long shelf life of up to two years, no preservatives are added to this deodorant. Synthetic preservatives such as parabens can be avoided with "made to order" items that are usually used up long before problems arise. Being this product contains no water, and the chosen ingredients used contain antibacterial properties, you should have no problems. The concern with parabens is that absorption of these chemicals on a regular basis can disrupt delicate hormonal balance and build up organ toxicity. Be aware of this when you see the words methyl, ethyl, propyl, benzyl and butyl.

Rather than be exposed to things like triclosan for its anti-bacterial and odor killing actions, why not utilize the power of our plant world. Certainly safer than using a known carcinogenic pesticide.

A touch of neem oil is added as it soothes irritated skin, and studies show it is very useful for killing harmful bacteria on the skin.

Sage essential oil has antimicrobial qualities and its sharp, clean smell add a scent appealing to both men and women. The actual herb is said to reduce perspiration if drank in tea form.

Rosemary is another very good deodorizing essential oil. It's antiseptic properties help with healing skin, sensitive from shaving.

Tea tree oil is not only a deodorizer and acts as an antiseptic, but also contains anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.

When you make the switch to a natural deodorant, it may take your body a few weeks to get used to the ingredients and eliminate chemicals already in the pores.

Should you be sensitive under their arms after shaving, perhaps you could shave the night before and apply the deodorant in the morning rather than immediately after shaving.

Some people are sensitive to baking soda in that it irritates their skin. If this is the case for you, we can easily reduce the amount used or substitute.

To use, turn the dial just enough for the amount to be used. Apply to clean, dry armpits.

Everyone's body chemistry is different. What works for one person may not work for another. One person may find that a natural deodorant keeps them dry and odor free, while another may find it failing after a few hours. You'll have to be your own judge. Reviews on such a product are very subjective.

Coconut Oil & Shea Butter Stick Deodorant comes in a 2.5 oz. plastic tube.

If you would prefer another essential oil blend the following are nice options, just let me know at checkout:

Lavender, Lemon, Frankincense
Lavender, Lime, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree
Lemongrass, Rosemary, Tea Tree
Tangerine, Sandalwood, Sage


Also available is the same basic recipe but as a cream in a 2 oz. jar

"This stuff seriously is fantastic. Over the past few years my skin has been getting more and more sensitive, initially to 'store' brand detergents/soaps, but then suddenly my baking soda deodorant was on that list... After using a few earth/clay blends, they just don't really seem to cut it for my BO. I was delighted to see the "half and half" option for this stuff and decided to give the baking soda another shot. I am happy say this stuff not only smells great, but it *lasts* all day. I slap this on before I go to work, go work out, come home and there is no BO to be had after 10-12 hours of running around! Judging from my skin, it seems pretty okay with whatever baking soda ratio this has too! 100% I will be back once this tube runs out. I'm thrilled to finally have found something that works!"

"Second time purchasing this. I love that it never irritates my skin! I have discovered my new favorite deodorant! Everyone in my family keeps taking some too, so it must be good! I have had some very sweaty days recently and very happy to say I didn't even need to reapply this. I couldn't still smell the essential oils in it but I detected no body odor, just simply fresh smelling. You really need to try this one! Every other one I've tried, with the exception of one other, I've had to reapply throughout the day. Nice knowing I'm covered and don't have to worry about it!"

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged

  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)

Returns and exchange details
Due to the nature of all natural perishable products and personal likes and dislikes, we cannot except returns. Should there be a problem, please contact me and we'll decide whether to refund or replace the item.

I want you to be satisfied with your purchase. If there is a fault with the product itself, you are entitled to a replacement or a full refund which would include the shipping costs.
If you simply do not like the product but have to admit there is nothing wrong with it, then I will offer you a refund on the order less the cost of shipping.

Please review the ingredient list of the product before purchasing and be aware of known allergies. Immune systems function differently so there is always the risk of a sensitivity even with natural ingredients. The preservatives used are an antimicrobial called grapefruit seed extract, the antioxidant Vit. E and the concentration of essential oils. These are a non-synthetic, natural means of extending shelf life but are not the broad spectrum preservatives found on the commercial market. Being the risk of contamination is always present in any perishable product please try to use the item within 6 months or keep in the refrigerator.

Shipping policies

Packages are carefully wrapped to ensure it reaches its destination safely.
If the package weighs 13 oz. or less it will ship by USPS First Class Mail. If it is something perishable such as creams or body butters during the heat of the summer I'll send it Priority Mail. If the package is over 13 oz. it will automatically need to be sent Priority Mail.
Packages that ship Priority Mail are automatically insured up to a value of $50.

I live on the east coast, therefore depending on to what zone the package is to be sent will determine the actual shipping costs. Shipping costs for Priority Mail varies greatly as a package travels further across the country. Should the package need not travel as far the actual shipping will of course be less, therefore the buyer will receive a refund on the shipping costs charged at the time of purchase.

For buyers with multiple items, if they end up overpaying on the totaled shipping costs compared to the actual shipping costs, I will reimburse minus the packaging costs.


INTERNATIONAL ORDERS:

Should a buyer choose the Other option as payment please be aware that I cannot accept personal checks. There may be problems with a check drawn on a non-US bank in a foreign currency. In fact, I'm not sure our banks will accept the payment. Payment needs to be as an International Postal Money Order in USD.

Contents of the order are itemized on the custom forms which is the requirement of the seller. Customs duties are the responsibility of the buyer. Each country has different limits and it is up to the buyer to educate himself/herself on that particular country's fees. Custom fees are often based on the dollar value. Businesses are not allowed to mark an order as a gift, it is marked as merchandise.
Below is a helpful resource for finding out how much you may have to pay in fees:

Due to restrictions on Bath and Beauty products we do not ship to Mexico

Please be patient with the shipping times for international orders. The minimum shipping time is about two weeks, but depending on location it could be a month or longer till the package arrives at the buyers address.
