At Last, a Natural Deodorant that Really Really Works!

2016-biteable-beauty-earth-conscious-hippy-paste-natural-deodorant-2

I tend to experience some disappointment when it comes to natural deodorants. Some work for a while, then don’t, some don’t work at all, and some still have some questionable ingredients in them in my opinion. So when I received Earth Conscious’ email asking if I would like to try their Earth Conscious  Organic All-Natural Deodorant I reservedly said “yes, please”. I never want to …
