If you had hidden a mic in my bedroom (CREEP!) here is what you would have heard last night:
ME: (beaming, I shove my outstretched hand ceiling-ward) Smell my pits!!
ME: (Thrusts underarm up towards his face) Smell my pit!!
THE OGRE: Are you super overtired or something?
ME: (still beaming) No, they smell really good! I used this new deodorant this morning, just a deodorant not an antiperspirant, and the package says you will smell at the beginning, but I don't, it smells really good!
He never smelled my pits :/
But they were excellent! 
I had used Bella Organics Deodorant Creme in Vanilla Mint. Let's compare the ingredients in my usual deodorant with Bella Organics. I am not going to tell you what the brand is though, that is my SECRET ;)
Okay, do your tongue exercises before you try to read this list out loud, it has some doozies: Aluminum Zirconium Octachlorohydrex Gly 16% (anhydrous), water (Yay! I know that one!), alcohol denat., propelyne glycol, cyclopentasiloxane, dimethicone, trisiloxane, calcium chloride, PEG/PPG-18/18 dimethicone (Say wha?), oh and fragrance, whatever that is....
Bella Organics: Shea Butter*, Arrowroot Powder*, (Vegan) Virgin Coconut Oil*, Aluminum-Free Baking Soda, Peppermint Essential Oil*, Vanilla Extract*, Teat Tree Essential Oil*
*100% Organic
How does it work? Bella Organic states:
"Organic arrowroot powder absorbs wetness naturally. Organic Shea butter soothes and moisturizes dry skin. Coconut oil has natural anti-bacterial properties as well as soothes and conditions the skin. Organic peppermint and organic tea tree essential oils provide anti-bacterial and germ-killing anti-septic properties. It leaves you feeling confidently cool, fresh and clean."
I don't know if I can ever go back. And why would I?
I want you to enjoy this same privilege and am proud to host a giveaway. If you don't win I wholeheartedly think this is a worthwhile product to invest in at When purchasing consider that only a pea sized amount is needed so the 2 ounces will go a long way!
