My natural deodorant odyssey!

I’ve been trying to get off of crappy aluminum deodorant for years + I have finally succeeded! So thrilled that there are so many delicious options now that actually work.

My favorites:

Schmidt’s has the most incredible flavors. The bergamot + lime ended up being my favorite. My only issues with this brand is that with the pot of deodorant it was cumbersome to apply (I think they have discontinued the pot in favor of the stick. Yay!) but the sticks are problematic as well. The rose had a sort of a sandpapery feel to it and the bergamot lime could only really be successfully applied when my armpits were moist and warm from the shower. If you’re cool with that, this one smells delish and works really well! (It’s also possible they have reformulated to solve this issue)

My other favorite is American Provenance! The names of the flavors got me initially – Pinups + Paramours, Firepits + Flannels, Daggers + Diamonds… and the scents are incredible combinations of essential oils. Things like wintergreen, fir + cedar or rose, bergamot and jasmine… yum, right?

This deodorant instantly solved my problem of the stick feeling too hard on my skin. These go on easy… in fact, they are so soft I have to be careful not to put the stick up too high! (I accidentally squished the deodorant by putting on the cap too abruptly)

I thought I would prefer the combo deodorants (haven’t tried all of em) but the Lavender won my heart in the end. It smells like the actual lavender plant. Incredible. The real deal. (Not like a yucky fake lavender candle)

So there you have it! Excited to try more flavors + to finally be off of toxic deodorant.

What have you tried? Anything you love?

    I’m off the aluminum bandwagon too, and I swear by Piperwai myself. I’ll have to check these out too though. Thanks!

    Hey Andrea — Schmidt’s has a sensitive skin formula which is MUCH softer and works just as well and smells just as delicious. My fave is actually the ylang ylang and calendula — I get “you smell really good” compliments whenever I wear it 🙂 I love all of their scents.

    Schmidt’s worked decently for me, but any of those coconut oil based ones stain my clothes. I have settled on Saje’s spray deodorant. I believe they have a store in Berkeley now (4th street?). I don’t know what black magic is in it, but I don’t stink and it doesn’t stain my clothes. I’m on my 3rd bottle of it.
