Originated in a farmers market, and created via the desire to make healthy products, while staying away from the chemical laden, saturated market of deodorant - body products. Award winning, cruelty-free, vegan, gluten-free, and one of the top selling natural deodorants in the country. Not only that, but you're conditioning the skin, in a normally un-conditioned area! Bergamot & Lime is the most universal, and a best seller. Lavender & Sage is a way for men to wear lavender while not smelling girly, as it has a bit of a kick. Cedarwood & Juniper is for the woodsy enthusiast (and the BOSS LADY's fave), but not for the super sensitive-skinned individual. Rose & Vanilla smells soooo damn good, it basically doubles as women's perfume.
Unisex across the board (except - Rose & Vanilla). The jars are a completely different consistency than the sticks (due to a few variables). When you apply the deo, don't apply up and down, but I recommend applying in one direction – up (and brush off the excess if needed). The sticks have the consistency of a body scrub, and your skin might get a bit red at first, but will get used to it after a few days. If you develop a RED RING in your underarm region (that doesn't go away), discontinue use, as you might be sensitive to either the essential oil(s) used, and/or the baking soda.
Apply as needed throughout the day. Aluminum-free, so it's not an antiperspirant. You'll sweat but you will NOT smell, as baking soda is the neutralizing component.
