beeodorant: natural deodorant has a coconut oil and beeswax base infused with lavender, which is known for its anti-bacterial properties, and sage which helps with excessive sweating. Baking soda and arrowroot powder is added for deodorizing effect and tea tree and lavender essential oil make it smell lovely and add more anti-fungal, anti-microbial stink-fighting powers.
deodorant comes in a 60ml twist-off recycled steel tin (not in a biodegradeable push tube anymore).
overall it actually works! (which shouldn't be surprising to a herbalist, but sometimes I'm still amazed by the powers of herbs). only tested on human friends, family and myself. handmade on salt spring island, BC
