Going green, I was reluctant to try natural deodorants for fear that they might not work. But, I didn’t need to worry as there are some great alternatives to the chemical ridden formulas.
If you want to smell fresh without compromising your health, check out these natural deodorants:
Salt of the Earth deodorant spray
If you would prefer a spray deodorant, I personally love Salt of the Earth. I like the handy travel size bottle for my handbag (and a great way to test the product). I also really like the pink one (Lavender & Vanilla) and the turquoise one (Melon & Cucumber).
When you first spray it, it feels different to mainstream deodorants that tend to coat your armpit in a thick white powder. This spray is wet. It doesn’t take long to dry and it keeps me fresh all day without any harmful ingredients. As you can see it made it into my hospital bag (click here to see what else I packed).
To be more green, you can buy refills for the deodorant and save money – I’ve not done this yet. I love that they’ve thought about how to reduce waste with their product too.

However, after arriving home, I hit a spell where my little one was very fussy and very difficult to put down. I found I couldn’t get even five minutes to jump in the shower. The deodorant wipes gave me a chance to freshen up first thing so I could leave having a shower until later when she was more settled.

You know the no plastic kick is getting serious when I start buying deodorant that comes in a glass jar. I’m no stranger to ~natural~ deodorants. I jumped on the no aluminum train about ten years ago when I started using the crystal. Now I think that the aluminum fears have pretty shaky evidence. Which […]
