Would You Wear: All-natural Deodorant?

A friend of mine turned me on to her favorite new product: Malin + Goetz eucalyptus deodorant. It’s all natural, and contains no aluminum, so it won’t give you cancer or stain your clothing. Sadly to say, I care more about the stained clothing in this regard (hello white t-shirt season!) so I was eager to try it out. Verdict is still out on whether it’s the game changer my friend swears it to be, but I’m hoping once I acclimate to the new system, it’ll be full speed ahead! (Beauty regime changes tend to take me a while to come around to.)

I’ve tried a few other natural deodorant products before, such as crystals, salts, even rubbing alcohol! But have yet to find just the right product. After the jump, a quick slideshow of the more often recommended products, and a crowd source request: Have you tried all natural deodorant? Have you had any luck? Let’s discuss!

  • Aloe-Based Roll On – Almond Scent 1 of 7
    Aloe-Based Roll On - Almond Scent
    The almond scent is what's selling me here, as do the rave reviews on Amazon. Have you tried this?
    Buy this deodorant at Amazon, $6.
  • Fairhaven Health Pregnancy Deodorant 2 of 7
    Fairhaven Health Pregnancy Deodorant
    Target to pregnant women (a time when aluminum usage should be strictly monitored?)
    Buy this deodorant at Sears, $8.
  • Tropical Traditions Aluminum Free Coconut Oil Deodorant 3 of 7
    Tropical Traditions Aluminum Free Coconut Oil Deodorant
    Coconut is a winner in my book, though there is also a version for sale boasting FRANKINCENSE. What?
    Buy this deodorant at HERE, $8.50.
  • Malin + Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant 4 of 7
    Malin + Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant
    Smells refreshingly green and doesn't leave a residue. Eucalyptus is a natural antiseptic, to kill off any unwanted odors. Warning: you WILL still sweat.
    Buy this deodorant at Malin + Goetz, $20.
  • Crystal Body Deodorant 5 of 7
    Crystal Body Deodorant
    Crystals! You use this by lightly wetting the top of the crystal before applying to under arms. Also aluminum free, and I was happy with it while I used it. (This one is a travel size, which is sometimes the easiest way to try something new, yeah?)
    Buy this deodorant at Amazon, $3.72.
  • Crystalux Deodorant Liquid 6 of 7
    Crystalux Deodorant Liquid
    A liquid! Intriguing! Is that a spray bottle? There are no reviews attached so you'll have to tell me: any good?
    Buy this deodorant at Amazon, $3.
  • L’Occitane Baux Por Homme 7 of 7
    L'Occitane Baux Por Homme
    Formulated for men, reviewers claim it smells of herbs de Provence and that you might want to consider reapplying after a half day.
    Buy this deodorant at Amazon, $16.
