I’m not a fan of traditional deodorant for women because they all contain antiperspirants which contain potentially yucky aluminum. That being said, I haven’t found a natural deodorant that works just as well at keeping my underarms feeling and smelling lovely all day long. That is, until I found Poetic Pits Oils from Living Libations.
I’ve already raved about a few of these essential oil-based skin and body care products, made by owner Nadine Artemis and her husband in the wilds of Canada. I love to use the Seabuckthorn Best Skin Ever Oil in facials because it leaves the skin so soft and fresh. I figured I’d their underarm deodorants because I’d heard such good things. Here’s the scoop: they do work – but they are (as they mention on their website) more of an ‘odorant’ than a deodorant. That being said, they do prevent any unwanted funk and keep underarms feeling fresh all day. I love the Lavender, and was told the Rose is also one of the most popular scents.
Essential oils, when made and used properly, are powerful and efficacious. These Poetic Pits Essential Oils are fabulous and I highly recommend them for natural ‘odorant’ or gentle perfume! Find more information from the Living Libations website.
