Grammy's Hug Insurance


I have been trying different natural deodorants for the last seven years or so. I usually resort back to plain baking soda or a coconut oil mix that turns to mush in the summer. Both are effective but a little on the messy side.

Our adopted Illinois “Grammy” was here and she brought along a wonderful find. It was a tube of natural deodorant that combined the best of all my favorite effective finds over the years with the addition of a small amount of beeswax to keep it firm and easily spreadable. The essential oil scent combination was a refreshing and uplifting change.

It was simple to create a batch and I have been using it ever since. I am not sure I will ever go back to any other method. It smells great and deters 100% of odors. It is effective all day long and a little goes a long way.

So whether you are grammy or whether you are wanting a hug from your grammy, this is your insurance to smelling good and getting extra squeezers!
