Have you ever had one of those days?

I hadn’t slept very well the night before and had to be up at 6 and out the door at 7 (I can usually sleep till 7:15). So in my haste and tired state, I got dressed and forgot to use my deodorant.

Now let me back up a bit. I have tried and used at least 7 different natural deodorants and always thought they were pretty good but not great. Pure Pitz was a great choice, but lavender not being my favorite scent, and the only one they make, was a deterrent. So I used the pretty good ones.

So then I go on Indie Cruise and I meet Stacia and Robert. We became fast friends and I was excited to hear more about their company, Handcrafted Honey Bee. They were rebranding their line and so they were doing a pre-sale of one of their DIY kits. As soon as I got home, I went online and ordered 2, one for my daughter and one for my son’s girlfriend. When March 8 rolled around and the kits came, the girls—they are 20 :-)— were thrilled! For me, as a gift, was a lip balm and a deodorant! I could not wait to try both. So the next day I used the Mango Coconut and the smell was divine. But would the deodorant work? Day 1, and it was so good. Day 2, still good. Day 3 I called and asked Stacia if they would wholesale to me because I wanted to sell it at my shop.

Needless to say, they did and it is a best seller.

So, back to “my day”.  I taught a class on DIY sugar scrub and with no air conditioner in the room and 36 students, I was sweating heavily. I headed to the car and started loading my cart in. What is that odor? I look around. Then I realized that OMG, it was me! I WAS SMELLY!! I quickly put my arms down, headed to work and keep them glued to my body for the rest of the day.

Well, the next day, just like Groundhog Day, I got up at 6 and was out the door at 7 to teach the 2nd class. But this time, I remembered to use my deodorant. Same hot classroom, same no air conditioner, but this time with 40 kids, so I was sweating even more. I got to the car and loaded my stuff in. This time, the sweet smell of mango coconut wafts out from my armpits. I WAS NOT SMELLY ANYMORE!! Needless to say, I was thrilled.

So I raise my un-smelly arm happily as a testimonial to how great this deodorant really works and I will never go back to any other brand.
