I use Axilla Black Chicken natural deodorant, I find it superior to anything you can buy. It isn’t an etsy company, but thought I would share anyway 🙂

mus1ca1xo :  I haven’t used any from etsy, but are you open to recommendations? I’ve made the transition, but it was a lot of trial and error. I had one off of amazon that was extremely highly rated leave me with chemical burns :/. I’ve had another one, more recently, after 6 months of use basically form a glue and stick to my armpit – ouch!

It took me two attempts, and the one is really recommend for step 1 is Dr. Hauschka’s rose deodorant. I really liked this one, it was really gentle and pleasant and I used it for over a year. But it just wasn’t strong enough for summers in the South and I got so tired of reapplying. The one that formed the glue was one I really liked and potent, but I managed to find something much better that doesn’t have that painful reaction – Native deodorant! It can be ordered online from their website, and I believe they sell sample packs. Can vouch for the lavender and the unscented :). 

 

Of course, Darling Husband just tried one deodorant line and it was perfect for him and worked on the first try 🙄

I’ve been pretty happy with the Schmidt’s natural deodorant in the lavender sensitive skin formula. You can buy it on amazon or I’ve seen it at sprouts market and I would imagine Whole Foods probably has it too.

libellules :  thanks for the recommendation I think I’ll try this after I finish my Schmidt’s. While I like it I would prefer a little more wetness control…

I use Thai crystal spray. You can get it on Amazon. That is all I will use anymore. Everything else irritates my armpits.

mus1ca1xo :  I use Schmidt’s and can’t say enough great things about it. It’s not from etsy but you can buy it on Amazon,  some pharmacies,  and I’ve even gotten it at Marshall’s before.

I’ve had issues with regular commercial brands wearing out throughout the day and don’t encounter this issue with Schmidt’s.

I love Native Deodorant. I’m a sweater, and it keeps me dry and smelling fresh. They also make a version for sensitive skin.

I make my own using one of those cocount oil, arrowroot, baking soda recipes. It works really well so if you find that purchasing the natural ones aren’t a solution, give that a try. I workout several days a week and have zero issues with my deodorant failing (which sometimes would happen with others).

mus1ca1xo :  haven’t used Schmidt’s, but Native for sure. I’d recommend starting ASAP. Switching to natural deodorant was definitely challenging for me and I was trying to do it during the summer. I’d advise against that if you have concerns with sweating, and well – I encountered odors (sorry, TMI!) 🤐

mus1ca1xo :  I’ve tried loads of natural deodorants and nothing has worked as well as my normal antiperspirants UNTIL I made my own, and let me tell you this recipe works even better than the TripleDry style antiperspirants! I’ve been using it for around six months now and wouldn’t go back. Seriously, I’m a major armpit sweater too! Here’s the recipe:

1 part baking soda

2 part cornflour or arrowroot flour (I find cornflour easier to buy and cheaper but some people are allergic to it)

Enough coconut oil to mix into a soft paste (I use between 1-2 parts)

Couple drops of essential oil, I like lavander.

I find using a tablespoon as “1 part” makes enough for around a month. Just rub a small pea sized amount into each clean armpit!

Give it a go, it’s way cheaper and more effective than commercial ones. The baking soda controls odour, the cornflour keeps you dry and the coconut oil is an amazing moisturiser.
