And I’m not talking about these lovelies from my front yard…
I’m actually talking about a bit of a stinky situation…
My 10th grade teacher refused to wear deodorant. Did I mention we were in a school with intermittent air conditioning? Well, this know-it-all teenager thought he was a crazy, smelly old man who was just afraid of getting cancer.
My wisdom is baffling.
Turns out his worries were valid – ever heard of aluminum salts, parabens, triclosan, need I go on?
I finally came to my senses and made the switch to a natural deodorant. My mind was convinced, my nose was not… let’s just say that finding a product that actually worked was quite a challenge.
First, I tried Arm & Hammer Essential’s Natural Deodorant… I suffered through 3 stinky weeks and moved on.
I tried Toms, then I promptly threw it away and went back to my old, conventional standby.
I returned to the search but JASON was just another bust (although I LOVE their toothpaste).
Then I tried Kiss My Face and let me tell you, no one would want to…
Just when I thought I had exhausted all of my options, I discovered Weleda at my local health foods store.
This stuff lasts through yoga sessions, 5 mile runs, spin classes, BodyRock workouts and walks with the dog… all in one day.
But seriously… since I have this crazy allergy to tea tree oil, I chose the Wild Rose scent and now my world smells a whole lot sweeter.
