From Willow & Oak Skincare.
Therapeutic essential oils and mineral powders help to keep the stank away. All ingredients work harmoniously to ward off bad bacteria and to work with your body’s natural chemistry.
Magnesium is used to help prevent bad odor which is usually a symptom of magnesium deficiency. It was a no-brainer to use as it is better absorbed transdermally (through the skin) and keeps us smelling good for hours. Arrowroot is added to absorb any excess sweat but please understand this is not an “antiperspirant”. You will sweat (sweating is sexy). Having a peace of mind that a product is working with you long term, with no bad stuff, far outweighs the alternative.

How to use your new deodorant stick:
Start by pushing from the inner edge of the bottom disc and then with a slow nudge push from the center. Use what you need but do not push too much product up, as it does not go back down easily.
Uh-oh what’s happening…TROUBLESHOOTING
My pits are irritated: STOP USING IMMEDIATELY. Take a few days to heal. You may be sensitive/allergic to one of the ingredients and/or essential oils in the formula. Unfortunately, this happens.
Best time to apply: Start with dry pits. A few strokes with the stick or if using the mini cream balm, a pea-size amount massaged into both pits. This gives the oils time to absorb into your skin so when putting on clothes your nice and dry and ready to go.
Doesn’t last all day: You may have to reapply mid-day. Stress, hormones, diet and lifestyle factors interrupt our body’s chemistry throwing our pH off and some folks just "sweat" more than others. Check out our trial sizes as they are a great way to quickly freshen up and are convenient to carry in a bag or pocket.
The deodorant is dry or hard: Once opened and exposed to air this may firm the top layer of your tube, especially in cooler climates. Not to worry, just warm the tube’s tip on your pit or with your finger, this will help soften the product and allow for a more smooth application.
