NO BO natural deodorant (Patchouli & Citrus)
A natural deodorant paste that not only keeps body odor away, but works with the warmth of your body and releases the essential oils in NO BO to make sure you smell amazing all day long!
NO BO is a favourite among natural deodorant users because of the toxin free, gentle ingredients and the unique essential oil blends used. Each variety uses up to seven different essential oils to provide complete protection, maximum benefits and a memorable scent.
Our customers are impressed with the amazing scent as well as the therapeutic benefits they gain from using a deodorant with pure essential oils. Some say they feel like a "human diffuser" because of the lovely aroma they emit when wearing NO BO. The harder you work- the harder NO BO works to keep you smelling great!
NO BO is available in two scents- Lavender & Cedarwood or Patchouli & Citrus. Our Lavender & Cedarwood variety is soothing, calming and has a woody soft scent with pops of lavender.
(30g of NO BO deodorant paste will provide approximately a 6-8 week supply for one person, when used once a day)
How to use this product:
Scoop a pea sized amount of paste from the container and gently rub into skin under arms. In cooler weather, scrape paste with your fingernail and warm the paste first by rubbing between fingertips to provide a smooth application.
This product is made with natural ingredients and you will notice that the consistency of the paste will be harder in winter and creamier in summer. This is perfectly normal.
If you are new to using a natural deodorant you are advised to do a pit detox and allow up to 2 weeks for your body to adjust and detox when starting out.

Despite the pure nature of our products, some people react or are allergic to entirely natural substances- for example lavender essential oil or Australian jojoba oil.
Whilst allergic reactions are extremely rare and unexpected, My Essential Alchemy cannot be responsible for allergies to products and resultant ailments if any. We strongly suggest that you patch test* (see below) any new product before its continued usage. If any redness, itching or discomfort occurs do not continue use.
Apply a small amount of new product to clean skin inside the elbow, inner wrist or behind the ear. Leave for 24 hours. Human skin changes daily and is affected by emotions, diet, hormones, and the climate. As with all cosmetic products, what suited you yesterday may not today, even though our formulae and ingredients have not changed.
It is especially important to undertake this patch testing if you are prone to sensitive skin, eczema, and psoriasis to avoid flareups.
We personally change our skin care regime throughout the year and suggest that you choose a product to suit the season, i.e. a richer, more protective butter in the winter, a lighter oil in the summer.
Variation in natural products
You may notice a slight variation in the colour or consistency for some of our products. These batch-to-batch differences are due to natural fluctuations of colour from the raw ingredients and seasonal adjustments. We never use synthetic colourants in any of our products. Our formulae are tweaked to suit the changing of the seasons and to provide a sublime end product for our customers.
At My Essential Alchemy, our hand crafted products and raw ingredients are carefully selected due to their natural, safe and effective properties. Despite this, caution must always be taken when handling ingredients in their raw state such as fine powders and undiluted essential oils. Take appropriate precautions for your project, such as wearing gloves, a face mask or working in a ventilated room to preserve your health.
As always, if you experience any irritation, sensitivity or discomfort discontinue use.
When making your own homemade products or storing raw ingredients please ensure that bottles/bags/jars are stored correctly, clearly labelled and kept out of reach of young children.
Our recipes have been tested and trialed a number of times to ensure their accuracy and effectiveness.
