Hailing from beautiful Hawaii, THinc. Skin (Taylor House, Inc.) is an eco-conscious company that makes all natural organic soaps, skin care products for babies and adults, essential oils and more. I had the opportunity to review PITS! Natural Deodorant, SANITIZE Those HANDS!, and their Orange RAW Pure Organic Essential Oil.
Essential oils have many uses from just smelling nice to antiseptic properties and even some healing properties. Orange essential oil has the following uses:
- And more!
It can also kill bacteria, viruses, fungus and pathogens in the air. It also can relieve depression, anxiety and anger. On the bottle it suggests putting a few drops in some soap and using it as a household cleaner.
I love citrus scents so I used it to re-scent my wool dryer balls. Since it is believed to have antiseptic properties it left my clothes not only smelling wonderful but also killed some bacteria left behind on my clothes, towels and cloth diapers.
Thinc. Skin’s hand sanitizer is the perfect size to keep in your purse or diaper bag. I keep it in the diaper bag because sometimes you just don’t have a sink readily available and it’s great to know that you still get your hands 99% germ free. Just spray a little SANITIZE Those HANDS! on your hands, rub it in, and you are virtually germ free.
My favorite thing about this hand sanitizer is that it has a wonderful, natural smell instead of smelling like rubbing alcohol. I personally cannot stand the smell of readily available hand sanitizers. It is made of Organic Hawaiian sugar cane ethanol (62%), Hawaiian macadamia nut oil**, lavender & orange oil. **Please note that if you have a nut allergy, Thinc. Skin will customize alternate ingredients for you.
Did you know that there are some health dangers when using typical deodorants? Breast cancer is of particular concern as parabens can mimic estrogen. Aluminum is also linked to Anemia, Osteomalacia, glucose intolerance, memory deficits, and Alzheimer’s, Lou Gehrig’s, and Parkinson’s diseases. Pretty scary stuff. I have only recently become aware of these potential dangers but you can be sure that I am going to eliminate commercial deodorants from my daily routine.
PITS! is made of 100% all natural ingredients: Shea butter, olive oil infused with calendula & chamomile, macadamia nut oil**, coconut oil**, baking soda***, arrow root, essential oil blend. Too apply you scoop out a small amount on the wooden applicator and rub it into your underarms with your fingertips. It has a smooth, almost creamy texture and a very pleasant, natural woodsy smell, very similar to the smell of the hand sanitizer. While using PITS! I didn’t smell of the dreaded B.O at all . Not even after running errands all day, going for a hike, or playing outside with my kiddos. I am convinced and I am SOLD! This will be my deodorant of choice from now on!
You can buy these and many other wonderful products from THinc. Skin.
