Farmgirl beauty secret #49: Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Diaper Ointment as a skin-soothing deodorant.

I'll let you in on this little secret- Burt's Bees Diaper Ointmentis the best natural deodorant...no joke! The zinc oxide in this product combats body odor and the zinc oxide is basically suspended in a base made of natural oils and butters, which makes it extremely soothing.

5 years ago, I had a severe case of allergic reaction to a "natural" deodorant. Since, I’ve figured out how well zinc oxide calms and neutralizes odor. I was on a hunt for the most desirable zinc oxide-based product. You can use the conventional zinc oxide diaper cream, but you'll smell like cod liver oil the whole day, which is unpleasant in itself- eww, stinky! This actually smells pretty because of the essential oils. I've been really into natural essential oil scents recently and it really does smell like lavender due to the lavender extract. If you haven't had luck looking for a natural deodorant, this comes highly recommended by me. My armpits smell nice :)



Here’s my disclaimer: I write extremely researched reviews after extensive, self-conducted testing. I do not review products I dislike; it's a waste of time and typing skills. This review contains products I purchased. I was not paid to write this review. My first priority is to my readers; company gratis does not guarantee placement. Affiliate and non-affiliate links are provided to inform readers of where to purchase products. All in all, you can be sure that items seen on my website are the very few products that qualify for recommendation after rigorous testing.

My husband totally got a reaction from natural deodorant too. It was horrible! Enviromom.com is doing a fab exploration of all kinds of deodorant alternatives and this is a great one. You should check it out!
