Natural Deodorants That Will Please Your Pits

It’s the season of warm summer nights and even warmer days - and it’s common to be concerned about sweat and odor. While the aluminum in antiperspirants can work powerfully to reduce odor by blocking sweat ducts, this can lead to potential irritation, infection, and sensitive underarms. By making the switch to an alternative and effective natural deodorant, your body naturally gets rid of toxins, maintains a stable temperature, and stays cool and clean for up to 24 hours, even when active. We’ve rounded up 12 all-natural deodorants that are aluminum-free, and sure to keep you feeling fresh, dry, and confident for the rest of summer's heat!
