Lume! This is really an amazing product! I am always a very skeptical person when it comes to new products, so this was a pleasant surprise. The first two days I used it...BO....within hours. I emailed customer service and they pointed me to a video about using an enzyme spray on my pits of my clothing to prep them and to use it after wearing clothing. No more odors. No more odors anywhere *wink. ANYWHERE. I am going to be sharing this from the hilltops :). Thank you for making an awesome product! I love that a solid, science-based doctor has created something that doesn't have potentially harmful ingredients in it that really works! It DOES have a strong herbal smell at first, and I actually do NOT like herbal smells at all. But, it goes away and is NOT replaced with my own, natural, ahem...essence. I am a smell-less wonder :). I questioned the product after using it for a bit. There is a lot of quackery out there nowadays and different opinions on products by non-experts that leads to mass confusion. I e-mailed the company about their safety and product testing. I got an amazing response filled with grace and she sent me a link to where they test the product. It is the same place Proctor and Gamble tests their deodorants. She said they proved a 48 hour lack of odor. She also said they could have probably proven a much longer efficacy, but decided 48 hours was good enough. My anecdote. As I write this I need a shower! Ha! I am sweating under my arms but have no odor. There is no odor anywhere else on my body that would normally have body odor. I have not tested this for 48 hours, but I plan to. I can tell you definitely that my old natural deodorant would not be holding up like this Lume. I will be a regular customer after this. A couple things about Lume. You must pre-treat your tops with an enzyme spray. See below for videos from the CEO and OBGYN/Developer of Lume. Watch the videos if you buy Lume. Your experience won't be positive if you don't prep your clothes or prime your body correctly (I promise...it's super easy).

You can also use some of this and dilute it with water. I tried it and I wasn't seeing the same results, but maybe it's just me.
