- Sydney, 28 January 2016 - By Irene Falcone -
Using natural deodorants is a topic I’ve covered a few times here on the Nourished Life blog and one that gets a lot of questions! Read my last posts here and here. I am also always trying out and getting in new brands, so I felt it was time to create an updated guide to the best natural deodorants on the market. I’ve covered everything from roll on and spray to pastes and stick deodorants!
The deodorants we have on Nourished Life are always natural and free from additives! Like everything I have in my store, every single deodorant has been thoroughly researched & tested!
Option One: Paste Deodorant
Our best-selling natural deodorant is the Black Chicken Remedies Axilla Deodorant Paste. It’s definitely one of my favourites because it’s chemical free and made with only natural and certified organic ingredients. It doesn’t clog pores or stop your sweat glands from detoxifying! This deodorant paste contains a long list of gentle ingredients including shea butter and arrowroot to absorb moisture and neutralise odour. It is also packed full of nourishing essential oils like peppermint, lime and lavender that leave you smelling as fresh as can be!
Another fabulous paste deodorant comes from Schmidt’s in the form of their Bergamot + Lime Deodorant Jar. It works really well to eliminate odour and destroying any nasty bacteria! It’s also really easy to use. All you need to do is scoop some of the deodorant out of the jar with the spatula (that comes with the deodorant), warm it between your fingers and then apply to your underarms. These Schmidt’s paste deodorants come in four scents including Lavender + Sage, Cedarwood + Juniper, Bergamot + Lime and Fragrance Free!
New on the market and already getting great feedback is the Woo Hoo Natural Deodorant Paste it is of course 100% natural, aluminium free and made with pure vanilla extract.
Option Two: Stick Deodorant
Looking for a paste deodorant that comes in a stick ? Then you have to try Schmidt’s and their Lavender + Sage Deodorant Stick. This deodorant’s formula is award winning because it’s so fast absorbing and doesn’t leave any sticky residue behind! Nobody wants that!
Schmidt’s also has a unisex Cedarwood + Juniper Deodorant Stick that can be used by both men and women. Just like the Lavender + Sage scent, this deodorant stick is excellent at effectively neutralising odours and absorbing underarm wetness.
For all of you stick deodorant lovers out there, I highly recommend you try the range from LaVanila! The scents are heavenly and are great for lazy days at home. One of my favourites is the LaVanila Deodorant Passionfruit that smells fresh and isn’t sticky or wet! It fights odour whilst soothing and calming your sensitive underarm skin. They also contain no trace of bi-carb soda, except for the new Sports Luxe which is a super version of the originals!
Lavanila also has a Fragrance Free alternative too, if you find the smell too strong but love the formulation! This particular one is ideal for sensitive skin as sometimes even natural fragrances can irritate delicate skin.
Option Three: Spray Deodorant
If you’re always in a rush then you just can’t go past a good spray deodorant. They are so easy to use and perfect for when you need a little touch up throughout the day!
Weleda is a brand that I absolutely love! You can read a whole blog post about it right here.
At the moment when I’m in a hurry I love to use the Weleda Wild Rose Deodorant because it’s easy to use and smells just like a perfume. This deodorant removes unpleasant body odour with the use of ingredients such as organic wild rose. It has a lovely floral scent that leaves you smelling fresh and clean. It is also a really gentle formula that won’t irritate sensitive underarm skin.
If you’re an active person then I suggest you try out the Mukti Organic Deodorant because it comes highly recommended by some of the best athletes in the world! It offers 24 hour protection and works to not only eliminate body odour but also bacteria. It also helps with releasing toxins without absorbing any harmful chemicals. Perfect for spraying before and after a good gym session!
The Divine by Therese Kerr Deodorant is another hard working natural deodorant that is formulated using gentle ingredients like lavender essential oils, olive leaf and bitter orange extracts. If you like beautiful packaging then you will love this deodorant! Very cute!
Option Four: Roll on Deodorant
Roll on deodorants are great to use if you prefer a classic, ‘roll and go’ style deodorant, rather than one with a waxy or solid consistency. Both Lavera and Fresca have a great range of natural roll on deodorants that last all day, including some for sensitive skin and beautifully scented options like the Fresca Valley Rose with pure Bulgarian Rose Oil.
Another amazing roll on deodorant is the Harmoni’s Kiss Organic Deodorant. This one is Australian made, strong working and suitable for sensitive skin of all ages! It’s aluminium free and features the powerful antiseptic qualities of Witch Hazel and Citrus.
If you love anything and everything vanilla scented then I suggest trying out the Vanessa Megan Vanilla Deodorant! Not only does it smell amazing but it also antibacterial and made with certified organic ingredients like green tea, vanilla and grapefruit. Yum!
If you have extra sensitive skin that doesn’t react well to many deodorants then you can’t go past the Biologika Fragrance Free Deodorant! It’s completely fragrance free and works gently to remove your armpits of unwanted odours and bacteria!
Know a man looking for a new natural deodorant? Sanctum Organic Men’s Deodorant is one I’m sure he’ll love! This roll on doesn’t have an overpowering scent and has healing properties to relieve cracked and dry skin. It also works to limit the production of sweat on the underarm to stop that stick, smelly feeling that comes from exercise or heat!
