Natural deodorants are all the rage right now.  I have been a user of natural deodorant for a while.  Before natural deodorants got popular and became a thing, I used to have to use a men's deodorant brand because it was virtually impossible to find a women's deodorant on the shelves that didn't also contain an antiperspirant in it.  Now that natural deodorants have become more main stream, women have a lot more options to choose from when it comes to picking a deodorant.  I have used a variety of natural deodorants and also made my own.  Since the sweaty summer season is just around the corner, I thought it would be a great time to review four natural deodorant brands that I feel work and are good options for any woman looking to make the switch to a natural deodorant.

Antiperspirants literally mean anti - perspire, or anti-sweat.  Antiperspirants work by containing aluminum salts that reacts with the water in your sweat.  When the aluminum salt interact with the water, a chemical reaction occurs, and a physical plug, or blockage, is created that  blocks, or plugs, your sweat ducts.  This is how antiperspirant stops you from sweating, it plugs your sweat ducts. 

Although there is a lot of debate and controversy about whether or not aluminum really does cause disease or not, I have never wanted to take that chance.  To me, it just seemed smart to allow my body to sweat when it needed to.   I never wanted to stop my body from performing a natural process that it was designed to do.  For this reason, I have never used antiperspirants and only used deodorants.

Deodorants work by masking the smell of sweat, and some contains ingredients that kill the bacteria that cause the smell as well.  Deodorants are in no way designed to stop you from sweating, they simply mask and/or reduce the odor of your sweat.  That's it.

As I mentioned above, I used to have to use a man's deodorant brand when I was a teen because there were literally no women's deodorants out there, all that was offered for women was antiperspirant, as if it was just too gross for a women to sweat like a man did.  Although the man's deodorant that I used was better than a women's antiperspirant because it had no aluminum, it still wasn't great because it had other bad ingredients that weren't great my body.  Thankfully, natural deodorants eventually became popular and these deodorants lack many of the bad ingredients contained in regular men's deodorant. 

In addition to trying many natural deodorant brands out there, I have also tried to make my own, but I found the process too time consuming and messy.  I also found that buying the ingredients to make my own natural deodorant ended up costing me more than just buying a natural deodorant.  It is for this reason that I now only stick to buying natural deodorants, not making them. 

Below are four well known natural deodorant brands.  All of these brands do their job.  Below I will review each one in detail and talk about strengths and weaknesses.

Please be aware that if you switch from an antiperspirant to a deodorant, you may feel like you are sweating like crazy in the beginning.  This is no fault of the natural deodorant, it is simply your body being allowed to sweat again and it may feel like a lot to you because you are not used to feeling sweaty under your arms.  After a few weeks of switching to deodorant, you should start to feel like your sweating has regulated and you will become more comfortable with feeling yourself sweat.

Without further ado, let's get into the four natural deodorant brands that I use and have reviewed for you:

Review of Natural Deodorant Brands That Work

1. Weleda Citrus Deodorant

Weleda is a very high quality brand and I use a lot of their products, including their Citrus natural deodorant. I like that this is a spray deodorant because it feels less messy to me than a stick that you rub on.  Weleda Citrus Deodorant does have alcohol in it, so if you have any cuts or nicks in your skin from shaving, it may sting a little when you spray it on. I avoid this by shaving at night before I got to bed, not in the morning right before I spray some of this on.  This product works well for everyday use for me.  On occasions where I know I will be sweating more than normal, I prefer to use a stick deodorant that I rub on as I feel it offers a little bit more smell coverage.  This natural deodorant derives its pleasant citrus scent from essential oils.

2. Aubrey Organics Calendula Blossom Deodorant Spray

This natural deodorant is made by a company called Aubrey Organics. Aubrey Organics Calendula Blossom Deodorant Spray is also a spray, which is a plus in my book because I feel sprays are less messy than sticks.  This product does contain alcohol however it must be less than Weleda's because it does not burn if you spray it on after shaving.  This natural deodorant contains calendula and arnica oils that help to inhibit odor causing bacteria.  It also contains calamine which has a drying effect and helps prevent the wet sweat feeling under your arms.  The pleasant scent from Aubrey Organics Calendula Blossom Deodorant Spray comes from essential oils.  I find that the coverage of this natural deodorant is great for every day use.

3. American Provenance Natural Womens Deodorant

I received American Provenance Natural Womens Deodorant, Pinups & Paramours in my Ecocentric Mom box. If you are unfamiliar with Ecocentric Mom, please see my post, Ecocentric Mom Will Slay Your Baby Shower Gifts. I was thrilled to discover this awesome company and I really love all the deodorants by American Provenance, they have some seriously cute scents. I received the scent "Pinups & Paramours".  This natural deodorant is higher coverage than the natural deodorant sprays in my opinion and I think you could say that its coverage is about as good as some non-natural dedorant products, which is pretty great!  This is roll on stick, so it can be a little messy, but that helps it give you great coverage.  It's scent comes from essential oils.  I highly recommend American Provenance Natural Womens Deodorant, Pinups & Paramours because it's one of the best natural deodorants I have tried.

4. Tom's of Maine Natural Long-Lasting Deodorant Stick

Tom's of Maine Natural Long-Lasting Deodorant Stick is a pretty well known brand. This is also a stick deodorant, so although it is a little messy, it also offers great coverage pretty comparable to other non-natural deodorant sticks.  It too derives it's pleasant scent from natural ingredients.  I have used this brand for many years before some of the other newer natural deodorants came out on the market.  I love Tom's of Maine Natural Long-Lasting Deodorant Stick and the only drawback for me is that it contains propylene glycol in it.  Despite containing this ingredient, if it comes between using this product and a non-natural deodorant product, I would definitely choose this product hands down.
