NATURAL DEODORANT – SEA SALT OASIS
CREATE YOUR OWN MYSTERY IN THE DESERT
Natural deodorant free of aluminum and cornstarch for those individuals with sensitive skin. We use essential oil and phthalate free fragrance oils in our products and we do not heavily scent anything. This product is one we use ourselves on our farm and we do our fair share of sweating.
Ingredients: Beeswax, sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), maranta arundinaacea root (arrowroot powder), butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), cocos nucifera (coconut oil), and fragrance.
SEA SALT OASIS
Escape from the heat this summer in your own personal oasis. This scent has a salty ocean breeze with a hint of mystique. It is a complex, mineral-rich sea salt, bordering on a spa fragrance, cardamom and orange peel top notes balance a rich heart of sea salt resting on an aquatic base of palm, light musk, and amber. This will transport you to memories of deep relaxation on sun-warmed beaches of Florida.
Now a little armpit education shall we:
This product does contain baking soda. Some more sensitive users will have a reaction and some may not. Most people have used antiperspirant their whole lives which does stop you from sweating almost completely. When an individual makes the switch to natural deodorants the most common issue is the deodorant not working immediately. Some will go through a detox phase but that should never last more than ten days. If you go beyond that point then your new “natural deodorant” is NOT working and it is likely time to try another brand. The second most common issue is that a few individuals will develop a rash under their arm. This can be caused by various different reasons but I wanted to share some of those as to not panic anyone if this does occur to you. You could be having a reaction to your own sweat, I know it doesn’t make sense, it belongs to you!! Why would you react to your own sweat….well if you have been using antiperspirant your whole sweat-life your body is not use to that exposure and it is likely changing the pH of that area of your body. There is also the chance that the baking soda in some natural deodorants, ours included, can be adding to the new friction action happening in your arm pit. You have now introduced sweat and something that can be used as an exfoliate to your armpit, baking soda. There are other reactions to think about as well. Most natural deodorants contain coconut oil as well as many other oils to include nut oils. Please take these things into consideration when choosing a natural deodorant if you have a reaction. Keeping your armpit’s pH balanced is key and that means also removing the deodorant, and remember sometimes soap is not removing all of the deodorant. A lot of natural deodorants contain a wax of some sort, whether it is beeswax or plant based wax, it is a necessity in stick deodorants.
This deodorant does not contain any clay at all and will not stain your clothing. Please note you only need to put two to three swipes on or you may have some adverse side effects. That can include some of the stuff we discuss above such as the abrasiveness of the baking soda but it can also can your sweat to be a little chalky white and run down your body or clothing but I repeat this will not stain your clothing. The chalky white color would be the baking soda and/or arrowroot powder, both of which wash out of clothing. 🙂 If you find that this deodorant is not working for you, please ensure you have gone through your detox period as we also discuss above. This deodorant DOES WORK as long as you have detoxed. Please let us know if you have any questions though, we would be happy to help you navigate this crazy natural deodorant world.

I’ve been looking online now for a while for the perfect deodorant and I finally found it. I don’t like wet, gooey, messy deodorants. My wife and I dance quite often, after I applied my new deodorant I worked up a sweat, dripping from my face with my shirt soaked I had no body odor whatsoever. This is the product I’ve been looking for. Thank you Tamara for making a great product. Please keep up the good work.
