A very FAQ in my group is what is a safe yet effective deodorant? I’ve been making my own for 4+ years now & it fits both those criteria, but it is a cream style, meaning you apply a bit of the cream with your fingers. For some, that is not something they want to mess around with, they just want to be able to roll it on. Many times when this question is asked, I’ve seen people comment that they use liquid magnesium & nothing else, and it works… So when Nicole, a group member, contacted me asking if I’d like to try her magnesium-based deodorant I thought it would be a great time to try this simple ingredient out!I asked Nicole to describe her business in a few words and she said this: start up company, organic when possible, cruelty free (I only test on friends 😂), non-GMO, nature-based ingredients.

I’m happy to report the deodorant has worked well for both myself & my Husband, we’ve both used it for a full month & went through just about 3/4 a bottle. I LOVE that it comes in a glass bottle! Also, there is a refill available!!! The refill is a glass bottle that will refill the roll on bottle four times!! The roll on is $5 and should last you 6-8 weeks of daily use ($3 shipping) and the refill is only $12 and should last you 6-8 months! ($4 shipping).

It goes on very easily & smoothly, and soaks in quickly. I also love the lemon scent as it’s refreshing, uplifting, and has beneficial properties itself. But also, as I’ve mentioned I’ve been using natural deodorant for many years, so had no detox period which is a very real thing for most who are switching from a more conventional deodorant. We were on vacation a good deal of the time we tried it, and often ended up swimming mid-day in a lake, and sometimes re-applying afterwards, sometimes not. But also while home, my Hubby was doing a lot of work around the house, preparing for winter by splitting wood, etc. And he was happy with its effectiveness (he also uses mine otherwise).

Ingredients: magnesium hydroxide, purified water, organic corn starch, organic lemon essential oil. That’s it!! I did a bit of reading on different types of magnesium as Milk of Magnesium was the 1st thing that came to my mind, here’s an article if you want to read up on the differences: http://www.livestrong.com/article/472107-magnesium-hydroxide-vs-magnesium-oxide/. She also currently offers lavender as a scent, and has friends testing out more manly scents presently.

 

You can order via the “shop” button here on her FB page: https://www.facebook.com/LifeAndBalanceLAB/. Or email: LifeandBalanceLAB@gmail.com

Great news to add: Life and Balance will be a new addition to my Eco-friendly One-Stop Shop (AKA buying club) order, and she’s offering us an introductory special offer: her deodorant at $1 off meaning it’s only $4/glass jar! She also has lip balms which she’ll offer us for $2. That order isn’t until 9/11-9/26, with delivery ~2 weeks later in Oct. If you don’t want to wait that long, I urge you to order from Nicole now, try it out, and then stock up with your buying club order if works well for you! For more info on that, I have a tab on my website with this note, which constantly gets updated with new details for each order: https://ecofriendlymamausa.com/buying-clubdeomy-poofy-organics/eco-friendly-usa-buying-club-2/
