Pretty Pits Herbal Deodorant w/organic essential oils


Maybe it’s just a little whiff when it’s particularly hot. Maybe it’s full-on funk. All you know is you need freshness that’s amazing (not loaded with chemicals), and you need it now.

What you’re looking for is this: an aluminum-free, 100% natural, handmade creme/paste deodorant that changes everything about the way your pits smell. It doesn’t simply mask your odor. It neutralizes it, and does so naturally.

BONUS: 7 out of 9 ingredients are high-quality, certified organic, from resources that value sustainable practices. Anything going near your pits needs to be that good.

Let me tell you what keeps you fresh as a breeze, and why it’s life-changing.


Organic coconut oil –  natural anti-microbial, antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory. Is highly moisturizing and absorbs easily. A super oil.
Baking soda – naturally neutralizes odors, rather than masking or absorbing them.
Arrowroot powder – (used in place of commonly-used cornstarch, which can be irritating) acts as a natural thickener and is thought to draw toxins from the skin. It’s been used as a skin healer/soother.
Organic beeswax – a natural skin nourisher, and provides outstanding moisturizing and protecting effects.
Organic shea butter – gives superior hydration to the skin and provides healing benefits (needed for skin that has a razor dragged across it!)
Organic grapeseed oil – a super-lightweight, highly absorbing, naturally soothing oil that helps keep your follicles happy.
Organic lemongrass essential oil – an herbal anti-fungal and antiseptic. It has a clean, fresh, uplifting scent, sweeter than lemon citrus.
Organic tea tree oil – well-known as an antimicrobial agent and helps to eliminate and deodorize body odor naturally.
Organic lavender oil – legendary for antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties and just plain smelling great.

NOTE: This is not an antiperspirant. Your body was naturally designed to sweat and thermoregulate – stopping that process is not your goal! Controlling odor-causing bacteria IS your goal.

Directions: Apply to pits with fingertips.


Be patient. Give your body 1 or 2 weeks to adjust to the switch from synthetics to natural ingredients. You may experience a little irritation at first. This is not unusual and will likely pass quickly. Your body gets used to the new stuff and goes happily on it’s natural way.

*Every blue moon, a handful of people just can’t tolerate baking soda on their pits. It happens, and it’s a bummer, but if an itchy irritation persists past a couple weeks, stop using the deodorant.*


IMPORTANT NOTE FOR THE SUMMER: During warmer months, your deodorant may melt and separate a little. This is totally okay, and the deodorant is still in perfect working shape, it’s just that the shea butter and beeswax do sometimes give in to heat. In addition, it is highly likely that, after sitting in a hot delivery truck all day, it will reach you in this melty state. If you want to reset and firm it, just leave it at room temperature for a few hours (below 75 degrees should do it). That should bring it closer to a solid than a liquid, although keep in mind the consistency of this product is somewhat creamy.

Anticipated shelf life: up to 1 year from date of purchase.
For best results, store in a cool, dry location out of direct sunlight.

If you have sensitive skin and/or allergies, doing research and being your own advocate is encouraged where new products are involved. Talk to your doctor first about which products are right for you. If you are not sensitive but want to be sure you and the product will love each other, try a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body first and watch for reactions.

    This stuff is amazing! I was using salt crystals to avoid the toxic aluminum in conventional deodorants, and then a friend gave me a jar of “pretty pits” for Christmas. What a difference! Not only did it keep me smelling good through an eight hour shift on my feet, but my shirt still smelled good, too. It’s a bit pricey, but a little goes a looong way, and it’s well worth the extra cost. Thanks, ladies!
