Description: Lemongrass gives this special blend a zesty citrus aroma. Organic extra-virgin coconut oil has anti-bacterial properties of its own, and arrowroot powder absorbs wetness naturally. (Arrowroot powder is the dried root of the arrowroot plant. Completely edible, it is commonly used as a thickener, in vegan baking, and in baby teething biscuits. This is a "limited-edition" deodorant that's only available a few times throughout the year. Baking soda is a natural odor-blocker and also raises the pH of the underarm so it's less hospitable to odor-causing bacteria.
Size: 2.5 oz tube
Shelf Life: 18 months from date of purchase
Care: Pit Putty Stick is a unique product that takes some special care in use due to the lack of chemical binders. We wanted something that was certified organic, but also imparted powder to the skin, didn't irritate, and didn't stain clothing. So, we used a special ratio of coconut oil and arrowroot powder so it goes on dry. The downside to this is that the only thing holding the powder together is coconut oil, which can be temperature-sensitive and requires a unique application method. It does have the potential to crumble or be soft and squishy. It is, after all, why we call it Pit *Putty!*
Application: Be sure to not extend the product further than 1/8th of an inch above the tube, and just apply one to two downward gentle swipes. Never go up and down or press hard like you usually have to with other deodorants. You might not feel like you're getting product on, but that's just fine. If you over-apply you'll get too much product and it will ball up and fall off...with Pit Putty, less is more. If a light layer ends up not being able to control odor for you, we need to get a different formula for your body chemistry.
SPECIAL NOTE: IN THE SUMMER MONTHS OR IN HOT CLIMATES, PLEASE CHOOSE 'SUMMER SHIPPING' OPTION SO THIS ITEM DOESN'T MELT DURING TRANSIT. If it does melt it is still useable but will be more prone to crumbling or may arrive misshapen. If this does happen, please visit our Pit Putty Help Page.
I keep it in the refrigerator, one or two swipes is all it takes refreshing feel and scent, been using it for 5 or 6 yrs.
I like to leave these in the refrigerator as they apply better at colder temperatures.
I've been using this type of deodorant from two other manufacturers. Neither of the competitors' versions crumble like this one does. I even warmed it on my skin before applying. I turn it up only slightly above the container top. I'm also disappointed in how long the deodorant lasts, I did need to reapply late afternoon.
Glad I found this deodorant pit putty I would not use another. ever no chemicals you wont be sorry you tried it.
I've struggled with natural, aluminum-free deodorants for years now. I've tried every organic brand you can think of and every single one of them would give me bumps and a rash under my arms sending me back to Dove or Secret. Then I found this brand online and emailed back and forth with Stephanie about my struggle. She recommended the Pit Putty and after almost finishing the entire stick, I'm in love! This scent is so refreshing and smells natural and clean. I'm not getting a rash anymore and I only have to apply the deodorant once in the morning and again right before the gym and I'm good! The only thing I don't like, is it does melt in warm temperatures but it hardens back to it's original state after being in cooler temperatures. I've just ordered a Pit Perfect stick and I'm excited to see if I like this one just as much. I highly recommend this brand to anyone looking for a great, natural product and amazing customer service.
So far it hasn't caused a rash like most natural deodorants. Smells great and only need a small amount on. If you are working very hard throughout the day though you might want to re apply it later on in the day.
The deodorant smells great! So far it's working okay but it's winter so I can't give it 5 stars because I don't know how it will hold up when I'm really sweating. It hate how it crumbles when you're putting it on. That's why I have it 4 stars. So far, it hasn't iriated my skin. I'm just glad I found a natural organic product.
Used this product for several years. would not even try another !
I love the smell of the lemongrass deodorant!!! I have the cream and stick. Sometimes it completely keeps me from smelling AND sweating; sometimes the reaction with my chemistry makes me smell terrible. I really prefer the effectiveness of the Jasmint (although I do not like the smell) topped with coconut almond stick. That combo works for me the best by far! Overall I LOVE Bumble & Bee. I've never found a natural deodorant work so well :)
This deoderant really works. I tend to smell when I sweat. Prior I was using just an arm and hammer store bought, which worked sometimes. Not always. I have been using this product for over a week now and it smells so great. I'm dry at the end of day, even the next morning before my next shower, I still smell great like the lemongrass scent!
This product smells great when I put it on, and the smell is a refreshing change from all of the artificial smells of regular deodorants. The problem, for me, is that it does not last. I put it on in the morning, and by mid to late afternoon, I need to reapply or deal with sweaty underarms.

I love the scents! So far it is holding up for my active lifestyle. Keeps me dry!!
