I tried 5 different natural deodorants. Here’s what I think of each of them.
Like most who are interested in homesteading, I’ve tried natural deodorant. Actually, I’ve tried 5! I’ve thought about making my own before but somehow the idea never stuck. Instead, I continued to buy pre-made natural deodorants over and over again. Here’s what I think of the ones I’ve tried thus far.
I actually really liked the scent of Toms. The way it applied was nice too but after hours of wear I didn’t feel clean or feel like the smell was good after several hours of use.
- Dove Natural
Maybe it was an allergy, maybe I’m a heavy sweater. Either way, this deodorant didn’t work for me. It smelled great but felt slick and sticky when I’d put in on and didn’t feel clean. After days of trying this I couldn’t get past the slick feeling and had to stop using this deodorant because it did nothing for me.
- Little Seed Co.
I thought I’d love this one! I’d heard so many great reviews on this so I went ahead and ordered a sample sized one. I waited excitedly for my order to come, however, it never arrived. We’re nearly 6 months out and I never received this one. So while I can’t speak to its ability to do its job, I can speak to the fact that you many not actually receive this one.
Native wins by a landslide. I was gifted this deodorant and while I do not like the price tag it does work far better than any other natural deodorant I have tried. It works great for your daily wear and even light activity but doesn’t stand up to the heavy wear that we often deal with here in Florida. With that said, I still use this deodorant regularly and feel confidant knowing that I’m doing what is best for my body while not smelling offensively to those around me.
Schmidt’s originally left me feeling hopeful. I liked the scent, I liked the way it felt on my skin. I liked how it work…until I didn’t. Approximately 3 days after using their deodorant my skin was burned and broken. The chemical compound in Schmidt’s burnt through my skin and left me with a rash.
These are my reviews and opinions and I in no way want to keep you from trying this for yourself. Absolutely try to use these for yourself and figure out which one will work best for you!
