Natural deodorant? I’ll be the first to admit I haven’t been one to try it much. After sampling a vinegar-based spray – and getting whiffs of vinegar from my armpits all day long – I’ve stuck to safer commercial brands.
But I’ve been a dissatisfied customer. Synthetic-based deodorant or not, it leaves me stinking when I’m truly sweating. Since this typically happens when I’m in the middle of some sort of a public presentation – like teaching a class – the LAST thing I want to do is smell my own body odor and wonder if others can smell it, too.
When the Moody Sisters approached me to review their products, I was excited to try a powder deodorant. And a little skeptical. Could handmade deodorant with ingredients like organic cornstarch, organic arrowroot powder, baking soda and essential oils really deodorize my stinky pits?
I decided to try it under extreme conditions – during a walking tour in hot and humid Williamsburg, Virginia. Every morning before I left for a day of sightseeing, I applied Moody Sisters’ Vanilla Orange Powder Deodorant with a big powder puff. Since I was on the go all day long – for five days in a row – I didn’t have a chance to reapply throughout the day.
On four nights, I was shocked to return to my hotel room and discover that the deodorant worked wonderfully. I had absolutely no body odor. Only one night I noticed any odor – and that was after walking for 6 hours in 90+ degree heat.
I was amazed at the effectiveness of this deodorant. (And I love the way it smells like candy!)
