Schmidt's Cedarwood + Juniper

1.16.2015

I have been searching for the perfect natural deodorant for quite some time now. I've tried a few including Tom's, crystal rock deo, liquid crystal deo, and a few homemade versions but they either didn't work for me or gave me a horrible itchy rash. Then I came across Schmidt's and their overwhelmingly positive reviews so I ordered their Cedarwood+Juniper deodorant right away. I received it in the mail this week and let me just say that it smells amazing!
Ingredients:
shea butter, baking soda, arrowroot powder, cocoa seed butter, himalayan cedar essential oil, vitamin E, juniper essential oil, and hop extract.

 The consistency is really creamy too, which i love! It comes with a little spatula and then you warm it up between your fingers and it applies very easily.
Unfortunately, on the second day of wearing this I noticed red patches in my armpits due to the baking soda. I stopped using it and have been applying coconut oil to get rid of the itchiness and redness. I read online that baking soda's pH is much different than our skin's so that can cause problems like rashes in some people. I would totally recommend trying this deodorant out if you're not sensitive to baking soda though because it smells really good. So...my search for a natural deodorant continues...

Update: I wear this deo occasionally because I love the way it smells and I found a little trick to get less irritation I rub on a layer of coconut oil & roman chamomile essential oil first then I put a small amount of this deodorant on.
