Product Description

The response to my original Pronounce Deodorant Recipe has been overwhelmingly positive.

I have had literally thousands of people purchase an original Pronounce Deodorant (and thousands more purchase the DeFunkifying Deodorant you are viewing now).

As you can see, reviews for my original Pronounce Deodorant formulation have been extremely positive (and you can read more original deodorant reviews under the product ‘Discussion’ tab)…

I have sensitive skin. Using [this] deodorant for 2 weeks, I have smoothe underarms… (the lifetime of red bumps— gone). I did not know this was possible!

Ummmmmm, I’ve tried every single deodorant to try and find something that isn’t toxic AND actually works, without any luck. Finally I found Scratch Mommy’s blog and discovered this; it’s amazing! Works all day, doesn’t cause me to break out into underarm lesions, and I’m so over the moon excited! Thank you Thank you!

It works!!! Smells wonderful. My husband was raving about it at golf league. He wears this or nothing at all. I’m so proud of him :)

My original Pronounce Deodorant recipe works for the vast majority of people…BUT, I’ve had a handful of people say it didn’t work as well for them as they hoped…and they want more.

When someone says that my (or any!) organic/natural deodorant didn’t work for them, my first three questions are always…

  • How long did you try it? (please give it more than a few days)
  • What were you using before? (with any personal care product change, your body will need time to adjust)
  • Have you done an armpit cleanse?

When those questions have been explored, it’s also pertinent to think about diet (what you put in your body can come out in funny ways…even through smell). …and sometimes, you truly do just need something with a bit more oomph.

DeFunkifying Deodorant – AKA…Deodorant With A Bit More OOMPH.

Not ‘too thick’ and not ‘ too thin’, but perfect for a standard deo container…and packs a bigger punch, but is still gentle enough for our sensitive, sweaty armpits.

This creation has undergone SIX recipe tweaks. It has been well-tested and is ready for you.

Scent Profile: Earthy, with a slight citrus overtone from the bergamot & lemongrass essential oils. Tamanu and neem make this deo beautifully rich and complex…and Earthy, in a good way.

If you desire a more simple and less complex scent (and do not want an Earthy scent), you should check out my original deodorants here (in three scents: lemongrass, lavender, and Dapper Dude).

This deodorant is WONDERFUL! keeps me smelling fresh and clean ALL DAY! I will absolutely be purchasing more. Thanks Jess for making such an awesome product! 🙂

    I’ve been using more natural deodorants in the past, but they always seem to stop working after a while. But after a little research I ran into the pronounce approach of things. Ive only had it for a few weeks now. It seems to work pretty good most of the time. Although a few days ago I went to a party in which I was sweating a LOT, unfortunately the Defunkifying didn’t work much, I had a strange smell Ive never had before (YIKES!) but other than that, I like it and of course I like it more because of what it stands for, clean and harmless product!

    I, too, have tried several “natural” deodorants over the years. The last one before trying this wonderful Defunkifying Deodorant had baking soda in it, which my husband and I both reacted badly to – swelling and peeling! I googled natural deodorants without baking soda and this one came up. I’ve been using it for over a year now and will never go back!

    This deodorant works great. I’ve tried other natural deodorants and they don’t last nearly as well as this one. The only problem is that the scent is weird I can’t describe it. I’m definitely still going to use it and hopefully make some of my own but it could definitely be improved with a better scent.

      Hi Julia! Thank you so much for your support of my handcrafted skincare biz and for your feedback. Based on customer feedback…you are in luck. I have tweaked the formulation slightly and it now takes on more of the bergamot EO scent (which is a citrus scent). You already love the effectiveness, and now you’ll love the scent even more!

    (verified owner)

    I’ve tried, no exaggeration, a dozen natural deodorants. This one excited me from the great reviews so of course had to see if it was the magic one for me. I read how to make it and that seemed to complicated so the pervade version felt well worth it.
    Everything about it is different than the handful of products I’ve seen. The color is green and it goes on a little green which was odd but that fades. The smell is kind of strange, almost like a mans deodorant but I’m getting used to it. Overall the performance is what’s really important and this one really works for me. Out of the hundreds dollars I’ve spent on deodorants this one works!

    I have always had an issue with finding a deodorant to work for me. I eventually thought, ok I need to go natural. Well, some natural deos worked but eventually they stopped working. I was skeptical about this due to the cost…but I have tried many and figured what do I have to lose. Well, I was not disappointed one least bit! I plan to eventually try making it on my own. Plus the recommendations you wrote about scrubbing your underarms before trying a new deodorant was right on! Thank you!

    Jessica…Thank you for your answer about cleaning my shirts. This might be a more appropriate question for your contact form, but I can’t seem to get it to work. I want to make it myself and can’t seem to find Kaolin clay anywhere. There are a few on amazon, but I can’t tell if they are untreated or not. Any ideas on other suppliers? Mountain Rose Herbs has been out of stock for a while. Thank you for all of your recipes! I am off for the summer and going to try as many as I can!

    Jessica…I absolutely love how this deodorant feels and works!!! As others have said, have tried many other natural and organic deodorants and they don’t work or they irritate my skin. The only challenge I have had is that I feel like it leaves a slight residue on some of my clothes. Is there anything you treat your clothes with so that this doesn’t happen? I’m going to keep using it because I love it so much, but it would be nice to figure out how to solve that small problem.

      So glad you love it, Catherine! You aren’t the first person to say this over the past couple of weeks. I recently changed my supplier for my tamanu oil and it is much more rich in color (so beautiful, but much more rich). I am going to adjust the ratios of liquid carrier oils to compensate for the more (beautiful!), but perhaps a bit too dark color.

      As for the stains, just make sure you are applying a light layer of any of my deodorants. For the stains you do have, you can simply rub some extra detergent into the armpits and let it soak in for a while before washing. Just a little pre-treat and it should come out just fine.

    Love how this deodorant works!!!! Like many others not too crazy about the scent. I look forward to the new citrus or summer scent : ) On another note, how do I keep it from staining my clothing? Do you have any tips? I just made my own laundry detergent about a month ago. I used Dr Bronners, baking soda, and laundry baking soda with a bit of Thieves cleaner.

      Hi Aja. So glad you love it, too. 🙂 Please see the comment I just wrote up for Catherine…that will help you with the slight residue/stain on your shirts. Also, a week ago I updated the scent slightly…by adding less patchouli and sandalwood, and more bergamot! It’s way more citrus-y now…and so incredibly delicious! BTW…your laundry detergent sounds nice. I hope it’s working well for you.

    Several years ago I spent a year and a half trying all kinds of natural deodorants. After several failed attempts, I gave up. Recently I discovered this product, as well as the detox method. I have been using for about 2 weeks now and am very satisfied with the performance of the product. However, I would love it if this was offered in a different scent. I am not at all crazy about the scent and look forward to trying a new one if you decide to make one. Will keep purchasing.

    i have been looking for years for a deodorant that works. Even when I was using the commercialized deodorants, they did not work. anyhow, I have tried many natural deodorants and nothing has worked. This stuff works amazingly well. I exercise at least 6 days if not 7 days a week and the deodorant has passed that test as well. The detox idea about the loofah helped me as well. I started doing that prior to receiving the deodorant Thanks for this wonderful product.

    I received my deodorant the day before I had a 3 day training in another state. The next morning my alarm did not go off and I missed my flight. I decided to use my new deodorant because if it was going to work this would be the time. I ran through the airport got on my plane. When I made to to luggage claim, I found out my bag did not make it. All this time, my scratch mom deodorant is heavy on the job. I did not stink. Yes, ladies, I did not stink. My situation DID stink but I did not!! Needless to say, I am very happy with my purchase and very relieved that I will not offend. Luckily, the size was TSA approved so it was safely packed in my carry on. I did wash up and reapply when I go to the hotel. However, what a day and what a job this product did for me. This deodorant covered me better than I would have ever imagined. Thank you for your hard work, research, courage to sell it as a product and the scent, oolala!

    Hi, I was just sent a link from a friend of mine that had a link to you. I’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer about a month ago and am fighting this illness with diet, supplements, etc. Hoping to not have to go the traditional chemo, radiation, surgery route. I’ve read a post linked here http://www.mamavation.com/2014/06/armpit-cleanse-reduce-breast-cancer-risk.html, that contained your DIY recipe. I’m a little intimidated to try the DIY approach first, buying all the ingredients seems a little pricey right now. According to the article to detox I would need to put on baking soda first and then a natural deodorant, is this correct? Or could I just bypass the baking soda if using these deodorants…

      I am very sorry to hear about your breast cancer. I’m happy to hear you are fighting it with all the natural and healthy options available.

      As for the detox, you can do the one you mentioned above, and it might work well for you. Along with many other people, my body doesn’t react well to baking soda (as it’s not a good Ph balanced match for our bodies)…but again, it can work for some people (for a while).

      Here is another detox method that I recommend to people, and it doesn’t involve baking soda. Hooray! I’ll keep you in my thoughts, Leslie. <3

    If you’re tired of smelling “sour” with other all natural deodorants… this worked in remedying that in about 3 days and even works on no shower days… LOVE it, wish I sweated a bit less but no deodorant or anti-persperant has ever worked for that anyways… just prepare to be patient… my order although worth the wait took way longer then I would have liked.

    I started with the original deodorant and liked it but felt I needed a bit more power. It doesn’t take much and the texture is great! I love musky smells and this is a bit masculine but not over powering….I don’t notice it throughout the day though! Thank you so much Jessica! I reordered today so I don’t risk running out without any! And yes, you will pay more for this than at a store but I feel it is worth every penny (and I am a penny pincher 😉

    I know I must have bugged the heck out of you waiting for this recipe! I made exactly as written except I cut the beeswax in half because I really prefer the creamy texture to scoop. This is my 2nd batch. Cat knocked 1st one to the floor and broke the glass! I have been chemical free in cleaners, soaps, shampoos & deo for over a year and have made many different deo recipes. The baking soda gave us red rashy pits. Others just didn’t work. This one have a very earthy smell to me from the neem & tamanu oils. At first I thought the musky earthy smell was me but I’m used to it now and am very happy with this recipe. My hubby said it doesn’t keep his stink away but I think maybe he doesn’t like the scent. Would recommend to anyone seeking a non baking soda deoderant!!

    I was so excited when I found this product! I am a tiny girl that sweats like a 400 pound man running a marathon. Deodorant was one of the last things I switched when I started going all natural, simply because antiperspirants didnt even help! But I finally put my foot down and decided to make a switch, and I struggled with constantly having to reapply my all natural deodorants. Well I’ve only had the “defunkifying deoderant” for about a week but it’s held up well! (I also have to thank you for talking about the deoderant detox, I think that also made a huge difference!) I had only one day where I reapplied and that was only once because I was going out and wanted to ensure I was fresh! I’m excited to use your DIY tutorial once I run out of my bought stick. To anyone that struggles with excess sweat, do the detox and give this deoderant a try! Thanks Scratch Mommy!

    This is by far THE best natural, non-toxic deodorant I have tried! I absolutely love it! It works, it’s moisturizing to my skin, it does NOT irritate me and I know it’s a healthy product. I’m sold on it, it’s my new go to deodorant. I really like the current scent, but it might be nice to have other scent options as well.

    Question: I’ve tried a couple of deodorants from the health food store labeled as chemical fee, cruelty free, concern free. They are a tad greasy and I don’t like that feeling in my armpits. Is your deodorant a little drier/powdery? If so, I am buying it now.

    I love the patchouli scent, it’s strong but not overpowering. Easy to apply and doesn’t stain my clothes. It is also pleasantly effective, even for someone as outdoorsy and active as I am. I do think it helps to take a break to freshen up and reapply at least once throughout the day (on a particularly active day anyway). Small price to pay for a great natural product, and it’s more effective than anything I’ve tried.
