LOTION DEODORANT SAMPLE - CITRUS
We encourage you to try our sample three pack, one of each of our varieties for just $1.50 more. same shipping cost. Available here:
This is a sample version of my popular deodorant in the new Citrus scent!
You will get 1 generous sized sample in a food grade, FDA approved 2.5" x 5.5" foil pouch.
I provide a large sample so you can make sure you like it and it agrees with your sensitive underarm skin. Some people find baking soda deodorants too alkaline for their skin's Ph. (Luckily, these are the same people that tend to have less issues with body odor. For these people I make my Mineral Deodorant roll-on. See my website on information on why some people might rash using Baking Soda: http://ziryabs.com/question_about_rashes/)
Please visit my review page for testimonial about my deodorant, I am honored that so many people have taken the time to give me feedback.
You'll need a paper clip or something to keep the sample closed and put it in a cup to keep it upright. Alternatively, you might want to pour the sample in a travel sized bottle so it can be shaken. Give the sample package some shaking before opening.
Please, only two samples per intended person (although you can order more for other people, just note that when you order).
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! Now in a citrus scent made with a new selection of oils unlikely to cause allergies.
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 another top with me. The commercial brands of deodorant worked at eliminating the body odor smell but replaced it with a smell that quickly turned unpleasant. The smell of old deodorant was almost as bad as body odor. I feared anyone who got close to me would be able to smell the distinctive deodorant-gone-bad sscent 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 hydrogen peroxide it at all times. When I arrived home, I'd take off the shirt I was wearing and put it in the bucket and put 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. And I made a citrus deo hoping to offer the kind of deo and scent people need. 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 contain oils our skin likes! The clay and tapioca I use help it to 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. (Sometimes when the deo gets cold or is left open it gets too thick. No problem, you can just add water - it won't impact the shelf life.)
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).
My citrus scent deodorant contains:
Aloe Vera Juice
Non GMO Tapioca
Witch Hazel Distallate
Rice Bran Oil
Sunflower Lecithin (helps as a conditioner and natural emulsifier
Karanja Oil (a great antibacterial etc.
Xanthan and or Guar Gum
Essential Oils of Pink Grapefruit, Clementine, Orange, Lemongrass, Litsea Cubeba, Lemon, Lime, and Petitgrain
None GMO T-50 Vitamin E
This sample can last yu up to 5 applications.
My customers confirm that one bottle lasts a long time. I'm glad but worried if my business can survive if my clients only need a bottle from me every 2 to 4 months. So, you can help, if it turns out you love my product as much as other people, help me (and others) by spreading the word. Tell friends and family, give me a review, favorite me, whatever.
