FLOWER GARDEN NATURAL DEODORANT
A Trail or Travel size of my Flower Garden deodorant (1.75 oz). A deodorant with the scents of Lavender, Orange Blossom, Jasmine, Rose mingling with a hint of Ylang Ylang and grounded by vanilla and herb. This is a newer lighter fragrance that I have formulated because of requests from customers who prefer a lighter scent. Also, this deodorant offers alternative oils in the recipe.
Say goodbye to aluminum antiperspirant and hello to being odor free under your arms for 24 hours.
This is the best deodorant I've ever used, never mind made at home!
I am as sweaty and stinky as they come so when I first made my homemade deodorant and it worked, I couldn't believe it, in fact I thought maybe it was just a fluke, my diet or something. It took me 18 months to test it in every situation and to give it to friends and family before I was sure... This stuff was a simple miracle and it did change my life.
Some of you, who don't sweat like I do, may think I am dramatizing but those who suffer from the kind of self-conscious concern about personal body odor know exactly what I am talking about.
Before making my first Body Brew Deodorant, I would use 2 different commercial brand antiperspirant deodorants after showering. Then, I'd carry another brand in my purse so I could reapply during the day. If I forgot to have one in my purse, I'd go to the nearest store and buy one. (I had a large collection of brands at home).
If I wanted to continue my day after 8 hours without a shower, I'd bring a change of blouses. The commercial brands of deodorant worked at eliminating the body odor smell but replaced it with a smell that quickly turned from pretty to rancid under my arms. This smell of old deodorant was almost as bad as body odor. I knew anyone who got close to me would be able to discern the distinctive deodorant-gone-bad smell just as I can on other people.
I lived a large part of my life self-conscious and worrying about the smell of my armpits. It was only after I was free from worry that I realized just what a huge burden it had been. In fact, I get a little bit passionate when I think of all those years of discomfort I endured that could have been solved by something as simple and healthy as my deodorant recipe. That's not to mention the years of exposure to all the chemicals they put into commercial antiperspirants. Even the so-called natural ones are full of ingredients meant to plug up your glands and make the stuff last until the new dawn. And I found that the commercial stuff worked its way into the fibers of clothes making them stiff while staining light colored clothing yellow and bleaching dark clothing light.
Now, I am wearing white and light colored blouses and t-shirts to my hearts content. Before my deodorant, I only wore white when I had to, which was pretty often since I wore a white blouse as a school uniform in High School (may years ago) and worked as a waitress for years requiring a white shirt.
The yellow underarm stains drove me nuts but I couldn't defeat them. Finally, I learned to have a work-shirt soaking in a bucket of sudsy water with a half bottle of hydrogen peroxide in it at all times. When I arrived home, I'd take the shirt I was wearing off and put it in the bucket and take the next day's shirt out to dry.
Free at last! Now, I own all kinds of white blouses and shirts, linen, delicate cottons, silks and rayons. No yellow stains, no deodorant stiffness! Woohoo!
This deodorant has made me so happy I want to share it with others. Sure, there are other natural brands but the ones I tried didn't work for me. I hope there are brands out there that do work as well as mine because there is plenty of room for all of us! Plus, natural, hand-made deodorant makers, working together, can get the message out to more people that no one needs to put potentially harmful, cancer causing crap in their armpits to smell good 24 hours a day!
Once people try my deodorant, they rave about it but getting them to try it can be difficult. I sell it at Farmer's Markets, giving out free samples just to get the word out. MANY people don't want to even bother trying it because they say "Natural deodorants don't work for me"
To these people I say; "I'll tell you what, try it and, if it doesn't work, I'll pay you a dollar." No one has come back to collect a dollar yet but people have come back to purchase a bottle.Sometimes customers meet me at the Farmer's market before I can even set up, or they call me and ask if they can come to my house. (I worry the neighbors will think I am selling drugs!)
Some people don't like that my deodorant is in a lotion form because they don't want to touch it. I don't blame them because they have learned that commercial antiperspirants feel horrible on the hands, I can't even describe the weird sensation. My deodorant, however, feels good on the hands and is harmless so you can wipe it off on towels or tummies without ill effect. Not only that, the deodorant is good for hands in that it contains coconut oil and apricot and sesame seed oil. The clay and tapioca I use help it to It dry out quickly so it doesn't feel wet or slimy either on the hands or under the arms. Sometimes, when I am pouring out samples and inevitably get it on my hands I just dust my hands off, sometimes I give my face a small pat down with my hands because I find my deodorant absorbs any shininess and just feels and smells nice.
Even so, I thought, maybe, to make people more comfortable, I will make it in a roll on, spray or bar... I tried and tried but none of them worked as well as it does in a lotion. I am not sure why. So, I'll keep to the lotion.
AS TO THE INGREDIENTS, I once told my mother the ingredients are good enough to eat. She tells me, once, when she didn't have toothpaste, she used my deodorant as toothpaste! She said it didn't taste very good but it worked! (Now I tell people, it's good enough to eat but it tastes bad and I make it for external use only).
