sooooooooooo since last i posted about deodorant (click here if you missed it), i kind of stopped using deodorant.
that’s right… i said i stopped using deodorant.
like, even through hot ass fucking days of shitty, humid NYC weather.
update 06/19: even through 2 sweltering beach days!
tea tree oil, my friends. i was sick of giving money to companies for natural deodorants that seemed to keep failing me, so i decided to get to the root of why body odor happens. i came across a lot of articles talking about how tea tree oil kills the bacteria that causes body odor, so i went out and bought a small bottle of it. i dab/spread it on underneath an additional essential oil for fragrance purposes (TTO stinks). i don’t smell like a complete hippie once it all dries, and i magically do not stink. i sweat (not profusely – over-sweating was never my problem), but i do NOT stink. it’s nuts.
i suggest testing your skin to see if TTO bothers you, but it doesn’t bother me at all. i googled about this and a lot of people combine it with other stuff like coconut oil (bc omg the entire internet uses coconut oil for everything) or baking soda (which i’m EXTREMELY sensitive to), but i just use it directly.
you’re welcome. ♥
