What are the ingredients?
Organic Baking Soda, Organic Arrowroot Powder, Organic Coconut oil, Organic Shea Butter, Candelilla wax and Essential Oils.
What scents are available?
- No scent ( which will have a slight coconut smell )
Do I need to store it in the fridge?
No, its perfectly okay at room temperature, however during very hot days it might become a little runny, so if you prefer to keep it in the fridge to avoid this you can, but there is no need.
How do I use it?
Simply use clean fingers to apply a pea sized amount to each armpit and rub it in.
Is Bodhi Balm deodorant also an antiperspirant?
No, sweating is a healthy body function that should not be suppressed, commercial anti antiperspirants have aluminium in them, which causes the cells in your sweat glands to swell and block sweat from escaping. Aluminium has been linked to cancer and many other health issues, it also stains clothes.
I found when I first stopped using antiperspirants and switched to Bodhi Balm natural deodorant there was a little more sweating at first, but after a couple of weeks, this settled down, and be assured that even if you sweat, the active ingredient in Bodhi Balm will control body odour.
I noticed that my deodorant is hard some days and then much softer other days
As Bodhi balm natural deodorant only has natural ingredients, on very hot days the oils may rise to the top, if this happens, just mix it back together. If you live in a very hot climate, and this bothers you, you may want to pop it in the fridge on hot days. On colder days you will notice its much harder, this is the natural consistency of the ingredients, and it will not change its effectiveness.
I am sensitive to other deodorants, can I use Bodhi Balm
As Bodhi Balm only contains natural ingredients sensitivity is reduced, however if you have extremely sensitive skin, we do recommend you test a small area first.
As with any skin care, if any irritation occurs, we recommend you stop using Bodhi Balm immediately.
Does Bodhi Balm have a use by date?
Bodhi Balm should be used within 6 months of opening
My Vanilla deodorant is getting brown patches
-The Vanilla deodorant may darken over time, the oil contains Vanillin. Vanillin discoloration is a 100% natural process, which can only be slowed down by adding chemicals, and as Bodhi Balm is 100% natural, we chose not to. The discolouration does not change how Bodhi Balm works, and will not stain your clothes
