Disgusting, Genius, Or Both: Edible Deodorant

edible deodorant
We know you and your dog have a lot in common, but eating deodorant sounds like a level only a canine would sink to. Not for long, though — a new kind of deodorant called Deo Perfume Candy is — you guessed it — an edible sweet that will also make you smell good.
This is usually the point in a post where we would say, "Well, sort of," and clarify that it's not actually as crazy as it sounds. But it IS that crazy. Deo Perfume Candy uses something called geraniol, "a natural antioxidant and its fragrance that, once consumed as a candy, leaves the body through its pores, creating a naturally sweet smell that can last for hours," according to the product's website. For now, smelly Americans can only buy it online, but it might be in stores soon for around $10. (The Huffington Post)
Is this something you would ever try? Or, is it just too weird to get your head around?
