deodorant, take 3

My adventures of finding an effective deodorant have taken another turn. I'm sure many of you are tired of hearing about it, but I wouldn't want to steer anyone wrong. I have new information!

Last I mentioned it, I had found a new solid deodorant that smelled divine. I loved it. I must have jinxed myself because as soon as I posted about the product I started having irritation from it (itchy).

I went back to the drawing board and spoke to the wizard of natural body products at my local market. She informed me that the product I had chosen wasn't so "clean" and it contained propylene glycol, which can be irritating. She suggested switching to a roll-on (so 1970s, isn't it?) or a spray, which are far more effective at controlling odor and less irritating than solids.

Of course I was skeptical. But I tried it and this time, I'm serious, it is a fantastic product called Herbal Magic. I've been using it for a few weeks now and have had great success. No odor, no itchiness. Happy at last!

My next post will be about propylene glycol. If you're like me, you're wondering what it is exactly and why you should care.

Sorry I missed posting last week. We were out of town and I fully intended to post while traveling, but alas kids got sick and I got tired. All is back to normal, now.

Do you have to buy this online or did you find it at a store? I'd love to try it!

I've been on this same search now for awhile. I will definitely check this one out - the other 3 I've tried just aren't working out. Thank you for the information.
