This is one of 3 aromatherapy blends which include a gentle, plant-based base formulation to meet the changing needs of most people: GENTLE, EVERYDAY and ADVANCED. They all have a firm “slip” factor that leaves a light, breathable layer on your skin – where an important lymph node is – while facilitating healthy perspiration. Using antimicrobial coconut oil for the base, non-nano particle zinc (not pore clogging), detoxifying bentonite clay, arrowroot powder and the customary essential oil blend (see ingredients) provide antifungal, astringent, antiseptic, antibacterial and deodorizing properties. It may take a day or two to detoxify residue build up from other products – be patient with this transition. Some people also restore their skin’s natural pH with water:apple cider vinegar (1:1) after bathing to help this process along. Some people will have to evaluate their expectations based on experiences with commercial deodorants to be more connected with their precise needs; this is not an antiperspirant, although the actions of the pine and clay will support moisture balancing. The primary function of my product is to de-odorize in a breathable base. It has NO aluminum, parabens, palm oil, artificial fragrances or plastic packaging.
HOW TO USE: Dispense by pushing up from bottom. Apply directly to clean and dry underarms, up to twice daily. One gentle swipe is a good starting point, but each person may adjust as needed, allowing a moment to absorb before clothing contact.
STORAGE: Keep the surface of the applicator dry and free from other debris and store in a cool and dry (50-80 F). If the product is exposed to extreme temperatures, it may crystallize (develop a slight graininess) which melts upon contact, and you may prefer to warm the tube with your hands for a minute to dispense product – the balanced texture prevents melting or overapplication. The large paperboard tube has a push-up insert in the bottom and is compostable, so you can throw it in your kitchen scraps pile when you’ve used it all up. With 1.5 ounces of product, it will last up to 6 months of everyday use for one person.
NOTE: This product contains essential oils. As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier. Discontinue use if irritation occurs.
