I just wanted to share, in case anyone was still looking for a natural deodorant- I found one that works!


I also had success using Toms if I put baking soda on first, but that started to hurt my skin.  I recently found this Kiss My Face one and it actually works.  I am super happy about it.

I use herbal clear.  I used it before and then went back to dove but now using it again now that I’m pregnant.  I think the sport scent works the best.  Here is there site.

I prefer the crystal deoderants personally 🙂 They work well for myself and my DH!

@cbee – thanks, I’ll have to try that. I switched to Tom’s for the first tri but on especially hot days now use regular deodorant. I’ve switched to Tom’s toothpaste as well… figure it can’t hurt.

@78h2o:  No problem!  I have tried every kind out there, so I am really pleased to have one I feel confident wearing.  I bring it with me just in case I need to refresh, but have not needed to.  I also use Tom’s toothpaste.  🙂  I am not pregnant, just passionate about healthy living.

I recently made the switch to “the cystal” deodorant within the last two weeks. I tend to have  episodes of ezema a few times a year, but especially during the summer months. I developed a rash on one of my arm pit. Not comfortable. So I couldn’t use traditional roll ons anyway, so I used my ACV for a few days. Once the rash cleared up, I purchased http://www.thecrystal.com.

I haven’t had any issuses with odor yet. Seems to be working fine. It is a little weird that after years of using traditional deordorant to get a little wet (since it doesn’t block it anymore) but I’m feeling better about it. I keep the rock at home and a spare liquid at work, in case I need to reapply (which I have yet to do). I don’t see the need to go back to traditional between this and the ACV. 

But i’m happy to learn about the lavanilla line. I’ll defintely give that a try as well.

i have used natural deodorant ever since my mother’s oncologist recommend that she avoid the use of aluminum in deoderants.  the only two that have ever worked for me are:  malin + goetz eucalyptus natural deoderant (http://www.malinandgoetz.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=128&category_id=2&manufacturer_id=0&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=55) and lavanilla (http://www.sephora.com/the-healthy-deodorant-P237120?skuId=1398544).  i know $18 seems expensive for deodorant, but 1 stick lasts me easily 6 months.

I am using regular SUave deordorant. Doctors said I could continue using my regular items outside the bosy, just be careful about foods and vitamins going inside the body.


Tom’s has a tendency not to work properly for some.

I use a natural. mainstream deoderants are just plain bad for you even when not pregs but when pregs i take no chances. They work OK not so great but cest la via. Toms doesnt do much for me but i find this brand Spring Fresh i found at Whole Foods works great

I use a deoderant from the body shop and find it works really well.  I am pretty clean all day and manage to stay pretty dry as well.

I’ve used the Arm & Hammer and the Toms brand natural deodorants. Yeah, they don’t keep you from sweating (which I think is a good thing!), but they usually keep me from stinking, except in extreme situations. I don’t think I’ll ever go back to anti-perspirant.
