Sweaty Situation? Pit Liquor Can Handle It.

Sweaty Situation? Pit Liquor Can Handle It.

Like death and taxes, sweat is an inevitable part of life. Unlike death and taxes, it’s actually good for the body and mind to get your sweat on. For those who haven’t yet discovered Pit Liquor, stinking can also be a part of life. Before we concocted this natural, whiskey-based deodorant, we suffered through many sweaty (and smelly) situations. If you plan on partaking in any of the following scenarios soon, it’s about time you stocked up on some Pit Liquor. 

 

Flailing During a First Date 

Some people are just really good at going on dates. They’re unicorns. For most of us, a first date ushers in an existential crisis like no other. Suddenly, everything is called into question - your wardrobe, your restaurant choice, the way you style your hair. The only way to avoid sweating through a first date is if you take your romantic interest to an ice rink or a penguin exhibit. Quench your stench with Pit Liquor’s whiskey lavender natural deodorant. It’s light, fresh, and, most importantly, powerful enough to kick body odor to the curb. No third wheel needed on this date. 

 

Taking Center Stage at a Halloween Costume Contest

You’ve thought of every accessory to create the perfect Sonny Bono costume, right down to the eye-catching metallic platform shoes. You know what doesn’t pair well with your white, flowy gossamer blouse? Yellow pit stains. That’s why you’ll pair your groovy duds with Pumpkin Spice Pit Liquor. When you go to strut your stuff across the stage and reach for that 1st place trophy, the only thing you’ll radiate is peace and love, baby. 

 

An Ambiguous Job Interview

Your sweat situation seems to be under control until the interviewer asks you to name your greatest weakness. Raspberry cheesecake, a man who plays the guitar. Oh, no, they mean personal weaknesses that could potentially impact this job you so desperately want. You rack your brain trying to remember what you and your roommate rehearsed just hours before. The pungent scent of your body odor begins to diffuse throughout the room. Body odor. Body odor is your greatest weakness. Next time, give yourself a dose of liquor courage with our straight Whiskey deodorant

 

Meeting the In-Laws

Armed with a bottle of wine and a bouquet of flowers, you ring the doorbell to your future in-laws home. Your partner assures you for the seventh time that they’ll love you. Yet somehow, just as the door swings open, you break out in a thin sheen of sweat. Maybe they won’t notice if you quickly wipe your palms on your pants before reaching out for a handshake. Prime your pits with Coconut Lime Pit Liquor so that you can go in for a big bear hug, pits first. 

 

Giving a Toast at Your Best Friend’s Wedding

Really, any public speaking engagement is cause for perspiration. What if you flub a line, linger for a beat too long after a corny joke, or accidentally spill an embarrassing bachelorette party story much to the bride’s chagrin? Hopefully you stashed some Whiskey Vanilla Pit Liquor in your bridesmaid bouquet. 


Sweating means you’re alive! It also means you’re working hard or pushing past your comfort zone to do things that may make you a little nervous. Go you. Pack Pit Liquor along on this little ride called life and you won’t have your B.O. riding shotgun any longer.

The Ultimate Essential Oils Guide

The Ultimate Essential Oils Guide

Essential oils have gained a cult-like following in recent years, however, the practice of using these plant-based extracts for a variety of healthful purposes isn’t exactly new. For centuries, aromatic plant byproducts - like leaves, stems, roots, and flowers - have been a focal point in baptisms, embalmings, and everything that falls between. 


Since modern America has fallen in love with essential oils, the scented products have essentially (see what we did there?) taken off. At Pit Liquor, we’re big fans of our fragrant friends. We put them in everything we make! Not only do they smell amazing, but they have medicinal properties created by nature herself. Here, we’ll share the most common essential oils and their respective uses. Print this out and stick it in your meditation nook next to your Mala beads and World Market floor cushion. 

What are essential oils? 

Essential oils are not deemed “essential” because we simply can’t attain mindfulness or clarity without them. They capture the essence of the plant - or its pleasing aroma. To get all science-y for you, what we deem “essential oils” are in fact the metabolic secretions of plants - aka plant hormones, aka what brings all the pollinators to the yard.


To get the juice, you’ve got to squeeze. Obtaining a plant’s “essence” or its scent can be done in a host of different ways - cold pressing, distillation, wax embedding, expression, and more. Because essential oils are so potent, they are most often mixed with a carrier oil for topical application. 

What are the most common essential oils?

  • Lavender. She’s the bell of the ball in our opinion. Lavender smells so delightful, is instantly relaxing, and comes from a gorgeous purple flower. Many use lavender essential oils in aromatherapy, during meditation, yoga, and for stress relief. Lavender essential oil can also be added to laundry, room diffusers, natural cleaning solutions, and more. Basically, anytime you want to feel like you’re naked in a flower field in southern France, go with lavender. 
  • Peppermint. Ancient societies including those of Rome, Greece, and Egypt, used peppermint to quell headaches, relieve cold symptoms, and minimize body aches. While we decided to ditch some less desirable elements of antiquity, like gladiatorial arenas and the heart-burn-inducing practice of eating while laying down, humans have continued to use peppermint essential oil for a variety of healing purposes.
  • Rose. Like lavender, rose essential oil just smells so damn good. It’s an elegant aroma that doesn’t overwhelm the senses. Rose evokes light, bright feelings of springtime, and is actually used in aromatherapy practices to relieve stress and boost moods. Some studies show that rose essential oil can fight acne, hydrate the skin, and minimize the appearance of scars and wrinkles. 
  • Sandalwood. In Ayurvedic medicine, sandalwood combats a host of mental and physical problems. Using sandalwood essential oil through aromatherapy practices or topical applications may significantly reduce stress, increase libido, fight fatigue, and improve focus.
  • Cedarwood. Besides transporting one to a thick pine forest, cedarwood aids in minimizing the effects of many skin conditions, including eczema, inflammation, and bacterial infections. When mixed with a base oil and applied topically to the scalp, cedarwood may prevent further hair loss and sooth itchy, irritable scalps.
  • Lime and orange. These citrus fruits may be celebrated sidekicks in the artisanal cocktail world, but in fact, the essential oil derived from lime and orange peels have noteworthy health properties. High concentrations of vitamin C make each powerful antiseptic that may be used to treat gum infections. Orange and lime essential oil is also used in skincare as a brightening agent that helps reduce the appearance of sunspots, scars, and discoloration. 

Pit Liquor’s natural deodorants smell so wonderful thanks to essential oils. Pamper your pits with fresh smelling products, instead of chemical components that our competitors love to use. Mother Nature is pretty much perfect, we don’t need to reinvent the wheel.

Blasting the Boob Sweat

Blasting the Boob Sweat

Sunshiny time on a beach or by a pool can also mean pools of sweat. In the armpits, sure, but for many in the world there's another major problem area. Hint: They live between the pits. Or, for some of us, they used to. (Ugh, gravity works!)
