Cardamom Manuka Deodorant Balm
The texture is soft and creamy and glides on smooth with a little massage. Cold-pressed coconut and sesame seed oils are infused with Tahitian vanilla bean pods and soothing calendula flowers, to create the exotic and warming base that compliments the essential oils of cardamom and manuka. All oils work harmoniously to ward off bacteria and work with your body’s natural chemistry, not against it.
Magnesium is used to help prevent bad odor which is usually a symptom of magnesium deficiency. It was a no-brainer to use as it is better absorbed transdermally (through the skin) and keeps us smelling good for hours. Arrowroot is added to absorb any excess sweat but please understand this is not an “antiperspirant”. You will sweat (sweating is sexy). Having a peace of mind that a product is working with you long term, with no bad stuff, far outweighs the alternative.
Will last up to two months or longer (depending on how heavy handed you are…little goes a long way)

How to use:
Swipe your finger gently across and scoop up a dime size amount. Massage in hands first, then massage into your pits. The balm will harden or soften depending on the temperature of the environment. Crystallization may occur, this is totally normal and will not affect the balms benefits in any way.
Slowing down and taking time out for you can be a real challenge. Stress and the wear and tear of life can really show on our faces and bodies prematurely. Creating products to help encourage “you” time, that reflects the physical beauty you give daily to your families, friends and colleagues is our commitment and goal. Take care of yourself.
