Natural Deodorant Option
Hold your noses ... I haven't used a commercial deoderant/antiperspirant in about seven years.
Good hygiene, diet and keeping the body hair free helps to control natural body odor. But, for those of you who must put something under your arms to be "sure..."
Try using a few drops of tea tree oil mixed with a few drops of lavender oil.
I drop both oils into the palms of my hands, rub together and apply under my arms.
The tea tree oil is antiseptic while the lavender is soothing for the skin (bye bye razor bumps!)
I like using Dessert Essence 100% Tea Tree Oil (http://www.desertessence.com/special-oils/organic-tea-tree-oil) and Aura Cacia Lavender Oil (http://www.auracacia.com/dspCmnPrd.php?p=t&cn=Lavender&ct=anpceoeo&i=y&br=Aura Cacia.
The combo of the oils creates a pleasing, comforting, clean scent that lasts all day.
Make up your own combination of scents and benefits that suits your needs.
Just try it!!
