Description: Love the scent of our original Geranium Lime 'Pit Putty but feel like you need just a little more deodorizing power? Try it with baking soda! It's the same great formula as the regular Geranium Lime 'Pit Putty but with added baking soda. Baking soda is a natural odor-blocker and also raises the pH of the underarm so it's less hospitable to odor-causing bacteria. Geranium is a rose-like scent, but with more earthy mid-notes. Lime is a pure citrus that mellows out the floral notes of the geranium. 'Pit Putty uses potent organic essential oils to prevent bacteria from growing. It doesn't kill the bacteria that is already there, so apply immediately after drying off from your shower for optimal results. (Plus, make sure you smell fresh by doing a sniff test before you even leave the shower.)

I have tried and been disappointed in a lot of natural deodorants. I was hoping through the reviews and guarantee I would find a deodorant that would work at Bumble and Bee. My biggest complaint with the other deodorants was it did not mask the sweat smell. I tried the Geranium and Lime with baking soda and love it. I also bought the Pit Primer as well. So far I am very impressed with the deodorant. On days I know I will sweat a lot I will use the Primer. Whether with or without the primer I have not had any sweat odor.
Finally, a completely natural deodorant that works! I've tried so many different brands and even tried making my own. Either they were not strong enough or the product irritated my skin. Geranium Lime 'Pit Putty Organic Deodorant with Baking Soda works all day long and my skin has never looked better. I usually can't buy scented products but the Geranium Lime scent smells lovely and is not overpowering at all. I will definitely be purchasing again!
at 45 yrs old I suddenly could no longer wear deodorant - severe itching, burning, red pits. Tried the "no scent/no fragrance" kinds - still no help. Tried this after a web search. First few days it didn't seem to work - I stunk! I hadn't been using anything for a couple of weeks b/c it hurt so much. I'm guessing it took awhile for the bacteria to get gone...I'd shower and scrub and I could still smell me. Then about the 3rd day it started to work. I'll say for me though, I have to put on quite a bit more than just the 2-3 swipes the directions indicate. I'll be buying more.
The deodorant does not keep me dry. By the end of the day, my underarm had an odor. Every time I applied the deodorant, pieces of it would fall down; cracking and falling all over the floor. REPLY: @N. Ambroise--Sorry to hear it wasn't the right one for your body chemistry! No natural deodorant will keep you from sweating--Pit Putty is the next best thing because of the wetness-absorbing powders. But if you sweat through the powders you may develop odors. Be sure to contact us so you can take us up on our deodorant replacement guarantee! We'll be happy to help you find "the one." You may benefit from layering the cream and the stick--a good solution for moderate to heavier sweaters. -Stephanie
i use it with the G/L scented pit putty. the deodorant with baking soda helps during the summer, i don't always use it in the winter. as for the smell, i'm sensitive to strong smells but this one doesn't bother me. i love it . been using it for 6 months now and have no intentions on changing it! doesn't do well with black tank tops in the summer though - but, i've adjusted!
