Body odor can be a cause for concern for people, and those around them. If you’ve tried natural deodorants in the past with limited success, times have changed – for the better.

If you want to use a natural deodorant that prevents odor, consider a natural-based deodorant. There are many on the market, and Organic Authority has provided an overview on six we think you’ll like. They are effective and smell great!

1. Aubrey Organics, Inc.

Aubrey Organics has been the leading natural body-care manufacturer in the world, since 1967, and a leader in natural cosmetic chemistry with an impressive list of “firsts.”

Aubrey Organics makes three all-natural deodorants:
Calendula Blossom Natural Deodorant Spray – An herbal deodorant spray that fights odor with antioxidant vitamins C and E, plus calamine and calendula blossom oils. This spray deodorant comes in a 4-ounce size.

E Plus High C Roll-on Deodorant – This herbal roll-on formula reduces odor and keeps you feeling clean all day. It is made with vitamin E (a natural antioxidant), organic aloe, calendula and chamomile. This roll-on deodorant comes in a 3-ounce size.

Men’s Stock Natural Dry Herbal Pine Deodorant Spray – This spray keeps you fresh and odor-free all day and includes vitamin E, calendula, arnica oils and zinc-rich calamine. This spray deodorant comes in a 3-ounce size.

2. Dr. Hauschka Skin Care

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care is a holistic skin care brand formulated by Dr. Rudolf Hauschka and manufactured in Germany by WALA Heilmittel. The original mission of the brand, which still sands true today, is to “heal humanity from the earth.”

The formula for Deodorant Fresh, a roll-on deodorant, combines witch hazel and sage extracts to absorb odor without clogging pores. The subtle, natural citrus scent helps keep you fresh all day and is made from essential oils.

3.G.B. Proudfoot’s Natural Body Care Products

The mission of G.B. Proudfoot, is simple, says Cameron Proudfoot, the company’s founder: “We wanted to create a natural deodorant that didn’t just work, but worked better than the frequently used synthetic brands.” This deodorant is free of aluminum, parabens, propylene glycol, and synthetic dyes and fragrances.

For Pit’s Sake Deodorant is all natural and comes in a stick form, in three scents – lime, clove, lavender, citrus, and an unscented option. It targets bacteria that causes odor and incorporates soothing botanicals to keep underarms odor-free and healthy. One more thing: the deodorant is said to be so safe that it’s edible, although eating deodorant is not recommended.

4. Miessence

Miessence products are the first and only comprehensive range of certified organic skin, hair, cosmetic and body care products on the planet. All Miessence products are manufactured by Organic and Natural Enterprises, with a total commitment to the health and vitality of their customers and our planet.

This roll-on deodorant is certified organic and comes in two fragrances, Tahitian Breeze, Ancient Spice and an unscented version. The formulation does not contain aluminum compounds or chemical antiperspirants, and combines bicarbonate of soda to help eliminate odors and aloe vera to soothe you. The floral and citrus aromas of Tahitian Breeze include ylang ylang, lime and patchouli. Ancient Spice includes a rich and vibrant arrangement of ancient oils and spices. The deodorant comes in a 2.2-ounce roll-on.

5. Soapwalla

Soapwalla is a line of luxury organic face and body products specifically designed to cleanse with natural, organic, food-grade ingredients, and essential oils. This line was created by Rachel Winard, after she had to search high and low for face and body products that would not aggravate her sensitive skin. Soapwalla products are vegan, are not tested on animals, and all packaging materials are recycled.

Soapwalla’s Deodorant Cream comes in a small pot. It includes superfine vegetable powders, clays, and lavender, peppermint and tea tree essential oils to absorb moisture, inhibit bacteria and guarantee a long-lasting, effective experience. Apply it directly to underarms and rub into your skin. The cream deodorant absorbs quickly.

6. Weleda

Weleda makes 100 percent, certified-natural skin, body and baby care products. Since 1921, the company has been working in harmony with nature and the human being, “putting love and care into the earth, their partnerships, and their products.” Their products are not tested on animals, nor do they contain artificial colors or preservatives.

Weleda Spritz Deodorants are comprised of exhilarating fragrances and essential oils and do not try to prevent perspiration, but rather, neutralize odors that can come along with perspiration. The deodorant comes in a glass bottle in a spray form, in two sizes (3.4 ounces or 1.02 ounces), and three fragrances: citrus, sage and wild rose. Some products are available at Whole Foods and Target stores.
