This is the first in a new series: Northwest Living. I’ll be featuring a great selection of natural products that are local to the Northwestern portion of the United States. I’m really excited about it, and I am so happy to start things off with a review of OhMyGaia.
OhMyGaia is a company based out of Hayden, Idaho. They have created a line of hand-crafted, all natural deodorants, fragrance oils, and beard oils.
OhMyGaia deodorants are created using a base of pure oils and butters, baking soda, and various essential oils and natural fragrances. Their products are cruelty free and free of aluminum and aluminum biproducts.
A lot of natural deodorants contain baking soda, which can make many people, myself included, very itchy. OhMyGaia has done something absolutely wonderful. They’ve developed a formula that keeps the baking soda, and the wonderful smell absorption properties it holds, but is ITCH-FREE. Obviously, this sort of thing is different for each person, but I really think OhMyGaia has come up with an amazing formula.
In addition to being itch-free, their deodorants blend into the skin well and don’t leave a thick, white layer on your armpit.
Their deodorants and fragrance oils come in a variety of tantalizing scents. I tried several and loved them all, but my favorite is the Cherry Almond. It’s such a unique scent for a deodorant, and I am positively obsessed with anything almond scented.
Look for a YouTube video next week where I go in depth on the profiles of all the different scents, and give a how-to tutorial on application of the deodorant!
But, I know what you really want to know….does this stuff work? The answer is YES. Please note that these are deoderants, not antiperspirants, so they do not keep you from sweating. However, they do keep you from smelling! I’ve used this product on days when I was running about town, days when I was chasing my nieces around for hours, and other various days when I normally would have STUNK by the end of the day. But with OhMyGaia? Nothing! Totally fresh & clean.
While deodorant is the star of the show at OhMyGaia, the fragrance oil I was sent was fantastic, as well. Who says only armpits should smell good? 😉 The oil isn’t greasy, and it has great staying power.
Overall, I am very happy with the products I was sent by OhMyGaia and will absolutely be purchasing from them in the future.
