As some of you know I’ve been on a year long hunt for a natural deoderant that gets me through hikes, workouts and mom life. I’ve tried local brands and some Canadian store brands to see what works best for me.
Everyone is different, so what works for me may be different for you but I hope this gives you a starting point. If you’re a maker and make deoderant please spam me with your products, I’m always happy to try something new! 😊😊
1. I Luv It!
I actually do haha I remember meeting these guys at a market a couple years back and I’m happy I finally tried it out! They have a sensitive/baking soda free version and regular. The scents are great too! I use the sensitive one as my skin needs it.
The one thing I don’t love is the glass tub as apposed to a stick. That being said I use a menchies spoon and it works great! For sanitation, I make sure to clean my spoon after every use. Realistically I feel like this is more sanitary than using a stick over and over haha This one goes on clear and is absorbed easily so no wetness after application.
I’ve had this one since August and am about half way through, definitely a good bang for your buck.
2. Glowing Orchid.
I’ve used this one on and off for years and like it. They have tons of options for size, scent and baking soda free or regular. These do come in a eco friendly stick for convenience. This one is easily absorbed by the skin so you’re not flapping your arms trying to dry out 😉
3. Green Beaver Company tea tree oil. I used this one right after a detox and found it kind of worked for the first week and then stopped working after that. It is in a stick which is nice, the casing is plastic though 👎It rolls on cool and damp feeling and dries on it’s own. Arm flapping may be required.
4. Escents lavender spray. This did not work for me…if I didn’t do anything during the day, I could get away with it but not a go to for me. It did smell lovely, until I started stinking stronger (LOL, sorry). It is also in a plastic spray bottle. 👎 don’t rule it out completely, it might work better for you.
