Who is this for?
Pit Putty Spearmint & Tea Tree Organic Deodorant is appropriate for everyone! It's safe for kids (barring any personal allergies), adults, men, women, even pregnant and breastfeeding women. The spearmint & tea tree scent is unisex. Tea tree has a somewhat medicinal quality, but in a unique, not overpowering way. It just smells fresh and clean. The spearmint adds a beautiful sweet mint overtone. All of our Pit Putty Sticks, even those with baking soda, are gentle on even sensitive skin.
For heavier sweaters
No natural substance will stop you from sweating, as it's a natural process of the body. The next best thing is to use a powder-based deodorant like this Pit Putty Stick *absorb* wetness. It may be more inconvenient, but it’s the best way to keep moisture-related issues under control without having to resort to an antiperspirant.
Apply Pit Putty Spearmint & Tea Tree Organic Deodorant any time you feel wetness and it'll dry you right back up on contact! The formula is mostly powder, so you can safely reapply any time and any *where*. It works great on feet, under breasts, in folds of skin, in the groin area. It works as a body powder, too!
For sensitive skin
Use Spearmint & Tea Tree Pit Putty Organic Deodorant alone, or paired with Spearmint & Tea Tree Pit Buddy Sensitive Cream.
How do we make it?
It's just five simple ingredients we mix in a big old Hobart mixer we've affectionally named "Bart." We take organic arrowroot powder and mix it with organic extra virgin coconut oil (it smells so good), a less-than 5% concentration of baking soda, a touch of organic spearmint essential oil and a splash of organic tea tree essential oil. (Ok, we weigh all of our ingredients and use standardized formulas every time.) Blend it together until it's fully mixed and the right consistency. Then we actually stuff the product down in to its tube by hand (wearing gloves always) and then smooth the top on a tempered glass surface. It can't be poured because the mix is so powdery and it can't be made with big machinery. It truly is a putty-like consistency, that's why we named it Pit Putty! When the batch is done, a member of the "bee" team from the labeling department comes and gets it. They clean the tubes, apply the labels, and add a batch sticker to each tube. Once the batch is ready, we put it in our inventory system and it goes in our warehouse and we ship it to you! We do all of this in our own facility. We don't outsource production or shipping to third-party labs or warehouses. We insist on doing it all.
Why use Pit Putty?
Pit Putty is USDA certified organic, so you can trust that what's *on* the label matches what's *in* the product. No mystery ingredients like "fragrance." Organic certification also ensures against the presence of GMO material, artificial colors, petrochemicals (like ozokerite) or other synthetic chemicals.
Pit Putty is a great option to choose if you're experiencing wetness-related irritation like intertrigo or heat rash. Most underarm rashes are actually caused by wetness, so using a product that's mostly powder is the best thing you can do for your skin.
Sweating is a natural process of the body! It helps you regulate temperature and even helps kill viruses and bacteria. The body sweats to remove buildup of toxins, such as by-products of protein metabolism that would otherwise have to pass through the kidneys. When you use an anti-perspirant, you're interfering with this natural process. Organic deodorants help to control odor without disrupting our body's beautiful built-in detoxification pathways.
Body odor is actually caused by bacteria. We all have a unique microbiome of bacteria on our skin (aka "body chemistry.") And it can change over time based on a number of factors (environment, hormones, genetics, stress).
Why doesn't my shoulder get B.O.?
When we're born, we have eccrine sweat glands all over our body. Eccrine sweat glands release basically salt water. When we hit puberty, our apocrine glands develop in our underarms and groin. Apocrine glands release more than just salt water. This sweat contains fatty acids, amino acids, hormones and their metabolites, metabolism byproduct -- it's a stew of compounds on which bacteria can feed. Different strains of bacteria create different types of body odor that can be onion-ey, sour, cheese-ey, and more. So when we say "body chemistry" that's what we mean. The unique compounds in our sweat and the blend of bacteria on our skin.
Pit Putty to the rescue
We formulated Pit Putty holistically to stop odor at the source. First, by absorbing perspiration (bacteria needs moisture to grow) and second by choosing essential oils and scent extracts that stave off bacterial growth. While spearmint and tea tree essential oils have a great scent together, they were chosen for their antibacterial properties. It's all about finding the right blend for your particular body chemistry. A small amount of baking soda (less than 5%) alkalizes the underarm slightly to make it inhospitable to bacterial growth as well.
Most companies just load up their formulas with artificial preservatives, too much baking soda, and other harsh ingredients so each of their variations work the same for everyone. That's what you've gotta do to be carried in Target and Walmart. But we're not. We're different. We formulate holistically, understanding that each person is unique. That's why we have so many different formulas and why we have our deodorant replacement guarantee. It's all about finding the right blend for your particular body chemistry.

Long lasting, works beautifully, thank you!
My very heavy sweating husband used Mitchum for years, and didn't want to try anything else. SO when he finally relented to trying Pit Putty, and used it for a while (he's still on the original stick I purchased), I didn't hold out much hope for this organic product. But yesterday he told me it was the BEST deodorant he'd ever used, and that he'd never go back to Mitchum. I was both bowled over, and thrilled, because I had given up on convincing him of the benefits of organic products. Not only is it the best he's ever used, he (and I!) love the scent. Just a wonderful, well-priced, SAFE product we will be using exclusively from now on.
I got my first Pit Putty a week ago and this stuff is amazing!!! Finally an all natural deodorant that keeps the smell away and helps with wetness! You all are lifesavers! I will be telling everyone to switch! Thank you!
I have have had allergic reactions (underarm rash) to almost all “regular” store brands except one throughout my life. I tried to switch to natural brands (just deodorant, not antiperspirant) and the only one I didn’t react with a rash to didn’t work at all - I would be very earthy smelling by the end of the day. THIS combined with pit buddy has been a game changer for me! With the two combined, I have great odor protection and don’t get any rash! The patchouli scent worked well also, but but the spearmint and tea tree scent is my favorite! Also, before trying this brand, I chatted with customer service (online chat) to get some direction and advice about what I could try, and they were super knowledgeable and helpful!
I have been searching for a while for a natural deodorant that will work for my husband. He always used anti-prespirant because of deodorant never working for him. Other natural deodorants were filled with baking soda and made his skin rash pretty badly. This was something I stumbled upon to finally help him since he's pretty active. He's almost done with it, loves the smell(hates strong smelling things) and asks if I could order it again(which never happened before since he's particular). Thanks for such a great product!
I was giving up on natural deodorant until I found pit putty. Stephanie was very responsive to all of my questions and the best part is it works. It is the only natural deodorant that has worked for me. The Spearment and Tea Tree smell so good.
Like the Bubble and Bee instructions suggest, I had to try a lot of fragrances to find the one that works with my body chemistry. I ordered the samplers and tried all the fragrances. Spearmint & Tea Tree works best for me. I like the addition of baking soda to absorb moisture. Every little bit helps in the South Carolina heat!
This works well overall and is good for those with sensitive skin. My only complaint (not a huge one) is that it tends to flake a bit during application and makes a little of a mess, though easy to clean up.
Great product ! Love the caring customer service
My husband and I have been using Pit Putty for about 5 years and we love it. He likes Spearmint and Tea Tree and I like the almond coconut. I don't think we will ever switch. It lasts a long time, too!
This deodorant is my favorite. My daughter and son also prefer this scent! Thanks for these creations! We love your products!
I reviewed the wrong product thinking it was this one. The jar of deodorant works great! I love it! This one crumbles all over the place. Please see the review I just left for this product on the other one. Sorry!
The stuff sometimes chunks off weirdly-it doesn't "slide" on well, but the scent is great and works well.
no more under arm rashes!
Excellent product,works as advertised. The scent is pleasant but not overpowering. My previous issue of under arm rashes has disappeared!! My other deodorant started to irritate my skin,could no longer use it. Bumble and Bee customer service was very helpful. I will definitely buy more of the pit putty.
This deodorant is awesome, my other natural deodorant used to make my underarms break out in itchy red bumps and didn’t really mask any odor for that long. This stuff is great, no breakouts and it does better at masking odors. I will definitely order again.
This is a great product. Not only did it stop odor and sweat it actually works. I have only been using it a few weeks and I love it. I don't have to worry about if I need to put some more deodorant on or some spray or bathe again. I highly recommend this product to anyone.
I’ve been trying to switch to natural deodorants for a while now but the moisture rashes that developed were just too much for me and I always switched back to standard deodorants. I found Bubble and Bee’s article about the causes of different rashes when using natural deodorants and thought I’d give them a shot - worst case scenario it’s the same old song and dance, right? WRONG. This deodorant is awesome. One application (2-3 strokes) lasts me all day. No odor, no sweat, and best of all no rashes! I’ve only been using the product about 2 weeks so I can’t speak to long-term use yet, but any rashes I’ve gotten started about a week or so into using a natural deodorant and that hasn’t happened for me yet. This time I got the Spearmint and Tea Tree scent and it smells so nice. It’s not overpowering - just the right amount of scent to keep things fresh. I’m excited to try some of the other scents available!
I'll never use another deodorant, trust me I've tried numerous brands. This cuts the funk ALL.DAY.LONG. and it doesn't stain my clothes.
I tried 5 other more well known natural deodorant brands and had zero success. Either they caused my armpits to break out or didn't work at all. This one has worked great! It's a little hard to apply since it's fairly dry but it keeps me odor free for most of the day and does not irritate my skin. I also love the spearmint tea tree scent because it's so fresh.
