The Wanderer's Pot o' Mud - Plant-Based Vegan Antiperspirant Deodorant
Mail gets left in all sorts of places with poor ventilation, and since we are getting into the warm months again, this means melty salves, balms and deodorants. Open tins and pots with care and fully upright / level, and if it has melted, fret not! Give it a nice stir with a toothpick, popsicle stick or any old tea-spoon and pop it into the fridge for up to half an hour to get it firmed up again!
For those who are skeptical about natural alternatives to store-brand deodorant, but nonetheless looking to ditch the harsh chemicals, this is the stuff for you! Scented with the same essential and gentle fragrance oils that are used across the Apothecary, these pots of "mud" last a deceptively long time and give you a powerful coverup without being overwhelming.
Made with only a handful of natural and organic ingredients, you can leave your worries behind about harmful chemicals soaking into your skin in the name of smelling nice - now you can just smell nice!
Spread one to two pea-sized globs (whatever is enough to cover the desired area- everyone is different) under each arm, rub it in like a thick lotion or cream, and voila! This miracle "mud" neutralises body odour and helps wick moisture without clogging your pores to do so- it will even get to work on clearing up your skin of rashes and cystic acne borne from use of other underarm products, thanks to its two antibacterial and antimicrobial powerhouses- cocoa powder and tamanu oil! Perfect for sensitive skin types.
Pick from 70+ uniquely-blended scent palettes- or leave fragrance out of it if that's not your thing- it will work just as well!

WHAT IS TAMANU OIL? - Extracted from the nuts of an evergreen tree called calophyllum inophyllum, tamanu oil is a remedy long used in Polynesia and Southeast Asia on the face, hair, and skin for conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and scars; also said to reduce inflammation and destroy bad bacteria. It is a fast-absorbing oil that is green in colour (so it will slightly tint whatever it's put in).
WHY COCOA POWDER? - The properties of raw cacao enhances elasticity and hydration in cells - flavanols help to soften, clear, and detoxify your skin. This also helps with fine lines, wrinkles and reduces the appearance of scars.
AND WHAT ABOUT ARROWROOT STARCH? - This powder will soak up extra oil/sebum (when put on acne and zits), thereby reducing inflammation considerably and reducing clamminess when used topically. It also functions as a thickening agent both in body products and in cooking, and helps whatever it's put in have a creamier, smoother texture.
