Do You Want to Get Rid of Nasty BO? Try This Deodorant!

Everyone sweats! You sweat, I sweat, your momma sweats, and even your little ol’ sweet granny sweats.  In spite of the great American dream of designing sweatless armpits, sweating is human. Sweating is normal. But bad BO is not!

I am a trainer by trade, so, sweating is a part of my job description. It’s actually a badge of honor in my industry.

However, I would sweat my pants at the thought of having bad body odor around my clients! I would not want to be a human repellent.

So, what do you do if you’ve been cursed with bad BO and when even the most expensive, chemical laden concoctions on the market do not cover up the skunk under your arms?


Just over three years ago I created a magic homemade deodorant that’s kept me BO free, regardless of how much I sweat or how hard I work. I used it while training, gardening, cleaning, running errands, chasing Sprout or combining all of these activities in one day.  And I remain BO free!

In fact, since creating my own deodorant recipe, I converted my husband to using it, and have shared it with thousands of others (not in person, of course :)).

Today I want to share it with you, so you can finally sleep, BO nightmare free, relax around your friends and co-workers, and dance your tooshie off next time you go clubbing.

It’s costs pennies, take only minutes to make, has no harmful chemicals, and will set you free from the worst BO worries forever.
