We've all heard that the aluminum in antiperspirant/deodorant is toxic.

Have you ever tried natural deodorant?

Have you ever been frustrated by it? It simply does NOT work. How frustrating to be stinky all day!

I have tried numerous natural deodorants and solutions; after much frustration and experimenting and research (so you don't have to go through it!) I have compiled a list of the three best natural solutions. These are the BEST, natural products available for stinky pits. If you're like me and are sick of buying junk, look no further. I promise these things work. You may have to try to see which one works best for you but all three have worked awesomely for me (who has extremely stubborn pits!).

1. Moogoo Deodorant

Moogoo's Fresh Cream Deodorant is the bomb! It's simply the best store-bought natural solution to stinky pits. Period. I've tried 'em all, believe me.

Here's a description from the manufacturer:
We are proud of developing this unique formula in Australia. Bottled in a 60ml roll-on. We hope you enjoy the peace of mind doing something healthy for your body brings.

Aqua, Magnesium Hydroxide (Milk Of Magnesia), Xantham Gum (Food Grade Thickener), Backhousia Citriodora Leaf Oil (Aussie Lemon Mytrle), Zea Mays (Corn) Seed Flour, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract

It comes as a roll on and is between $8-9. Here's their website: Fresh Cream Deodorant

2. Lavilin

Lavilin's Underarm Deodorant Cream is extremely effective. Compared to Moogoo...hmmm...I think it's a little inferior personally but some people prefer it. Here's a description from the manufacturer:

One application provides under-arm odor protection for days. Effectively neutralizes perspiration odor in the underarm area without the use of harsh chemicals. Daily activities such as showering do not interfere with Lavilin's effectiveness.

And of course, the ingredient's list:
Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil & Hydrogenated Castor Oil & Copernica Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Zinc Oxide, Potato Starch (modified), Talc (pharma), Triethyl Citrate, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract, Glycine Soya, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Tocopherol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Lactose, Milk Protein, Bifida Ferment Lysate, Fragrance, O-Cymen-5-Ol.

The price is $17 online.

And finally, a DIY that works (if you'd rather make your own).

3. DIY Deodorant

1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup arrowroot powder
3-4 tablespoons coconut oil
1-2 drop of essential oil (e.g. lavender, tea tree)

1. Mix the baking soda and arrowroot powder.
2. Mix in the coconut oil and essential oil.
3. Put in a small, glass container

Possible options:
1. Try halving the recipe to see if this works for you.
2. Try a combination of essential oils if you prefer.
3. You can make it the consistency that you like. It should be like play dough.

Enjoy fresh pits today! :)

I use Lavilin. One application lasts a long time for me.
Moo Goo fresh cream deodorant doesn't work for me. Just 3 months using it resulted in my waxy & greasy feel substances on the armpits of my blouses & they stinks! These I was told are antiperspirant ingredient which means Moo Goo
Can vouch for Moo goo I use it too and love it :-)
