I’ve been using a natural deodorant for over four years. If I’m being completely honest, it’s been one of the toughest, yet incredible journeys to learning more about my body and how it reacts to different ingredients.
Although it’s been tough trying to find the right natural deodorant, it’s so worth it. The chemicals in deodorants are unbelievable and I can’t imagine putting them on my armpits ever again! This TIME article goes over 5 harmful deodorant ingredients and what they are doing to our bodies.
In my natural deodorant journey, I’ve been learning which natural scents my body does or doesn’t react well with, what type of consistency (stick, cream, gel) stays on better, or which ingredients make me feel itchy or uncomfortable. I’m proud to say the journey is worth the time and effort- I feel great knowing I’m not putting harsh chemicals under my arms, and also knowing how I can still feel clean and smell fresh by using natural deodorant. I’m going to share with you some of my favorite natural deodorants, as well as some I have my eye on to try in the future!
