Push a small amount of product up from the bottom of the tube. Apply 1-2 strokes to clean, dry underarms. Rub in any excess deodorant with your fingertips. Re-apply as necessary to absorb moisture and control odor causing bacteria.

Here's the thing... Our deodorant is not an antiperspirant and is not intended to stop you from sweating. Your body is meant to sweat! Sweat is how your body cools itself down and prevents you from becoming overheated. Our deodorant is awesome at absorbing moisture and fighting the bacteria which causes odor, but if you perspire excessively, you may find it necessary to re-apply. This is exactly why we package our product in a convenient and portable (and biodegradable) tube!

Everyone's body is different. You've probably already noticed this in your search for a good natural deodorant, but (at the risk of being captain obvious here) what "works" for you may not work for your friends and family - and vice versa!

A FEW TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS:

1. Keep in mind that a little goes a long way - Start with a small amount (about 1-3 strokes per underarm.) If you apply too much and it starts to become a clumpy mess, simply rub in the excess with your fingertips!

2. Supercharge if necessary - Add a bit of our body powder (which contains a small amount of baking soda) on top of your deo to help absorb even more moisture and neutralize odor! - OR - Before applying your deodorant, rub your underarms with a damp himalayan salt crystal then apply your deodorant once your underarms have dried. (Note that this is very effective, but may not be the best option for ultra sensitive types as it can sting a bit - luckily, our deodorant has a soothing effect that should calm any irritation!)

3. RELAX, DUDE - Sometimes, you're going to sweat. You may even occasionally start to stink. You're human. Accept it. Take a shower. Re-apply. Enjoy the luxury of using our natural and wonderfully scented products during your self care ritual. (Or, go back to using that icky old antiperspirant... whatever floats your boat!) If you're in a pinch, "wash" your underarms off with a baby wipe or a few spritzes of toner, then re-apply your deodorant.
