My plant-based journey is never ending, and I am constantly looking for small changes I can make in my life for the better. One small change I have been trying to make this year is switching to a more eco-friendly and healthy deodorant. For my hippie friends out there, you probably know the struggle. It seems that a natural deodorant that actually keeps you smelling fresh is nearly impossible to find. I don't even have a big B.O. or sweating problem, but every "natural" deodorant I tried seemed to be a massive failure... till now.
I decided to really tackle this natural deodorant problem this month and started scouring the web for reviews and advice. Eventually, after a lot of searching, I noticed one brand pop up a few times with positive reviews; Meow Meow Tweet.
The name alone was worth investigating. Meow Meow Tweet is a small company based out of Brooklyn NY. Boom! Right off the bat I am getting excited! I prefer supporting small businesses and it is "local" for me (I live a few hours away). I was actually able to pick up the product locally at a natural cosmetic store in my state. Like many small beauty companies, Meow Meow Tweet focuses on small batch production (another thumbs up). Their products are all natural, and I mean all natural. The ingredients list on their products are so simple you could make them in your own kitchen (if you wanted to spend the time and effort, of course).

While it's nice to be able to blame my night-owl tendencies on science, it doesn't really help my continued problem with sleeping at night. It feels like every night I am laying in my bed staring at the ceiling till midnight or later, wishing I was sleepy. And every morning when my alarm goes off, I essentially feel like this...
