When I used to think of natural deodorant, I’d imagine hippies rubbing their arm pits over a crystal. I was not very interested in trying that. I loaded up my armpits with regular deodorant, going about my day, dry and smelling good.
Then I began to read up on the dangers of aluminum, heavy metal poisoning and more, all due to the ingredients in antiperspirants and deodorants. Scary stuff. I decided recently to make the switch to natural products. Here are some of my new faves.
Aubrey Organics makes two great deodorants, Caldendula Blossom and E Plus High C.
These fight odor, contain anti-oxidants and contain such ingredients as vitamin E, Chamomile, aloe, Jasmine oil. Neither of these will stain clothing and you can feel confident that you are not rolling or spraying nasty chemicals onto your skin.
Both products are under ten dollars and are available at AubreyOrganics.com. I’m a big fan of this brand. I’ve used- and really liked- many of their products. My kids use natural deodorants too as Im trying to encourage them to be conscious of what’s in the products they put on their skin, hair etc.
Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal brand offers lots of products for whatever you want- a twist up? sray? widestick? How about a roll on, or travel sizes? Do you want Aloe or Ocean Breeze? How about fragrance free? Whatever your need, they have what you are looking for!
All the Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystals are natural, hypoallergenic, paraben free. These products eliminate odor causing bacteria, contain mineral salts and will not clog pores in the underarm area.
Weleda Citrus Deodorant contains lemon oil and smells amazingly clean and fresh. There is nothing in this product to cause skin irritations, no aluminum to be found. This spray neutralizes odor and can be reapplied as needed.
Weleda has been around for a long time and is known to be natural with an entire line of products that are nature based. I will be reviewing more Weleda soon. Check them out here!
I’ve tried all of these brands, putting them to the test. Yes, they are a one hundred percent better option than risking your health by using products containing aluminum! Why take the risk? Allergies, skin irritations or worse, cancer and Alzheimers disease? No thank you.
For the ultimate in wetness and odor protection, I dust a little baking soda under my arms after applying natural deodorant. This ensures I will smell good all day long.
