Natural deodorant that works?

I feel like I've asked this question a million times, but does anyone have a natural deodorant that they actually like and have stuck with? Off the top of my head, I've tried: Curie (which is probably my favorite!), Native, by Humankind, and Ursa Major. I like them all for a while and then just feel like it starts being ineffective. So, anyone have a favorite OR is the drugstore best in the end? I do miss the old reliable Dove...

I haven't tried any natural deodorant brands (a certified Dove girl here). But I do have a friend who has made their own deodorant! This is the recipe she has used and she has liked it so far (she has used it for about a month). Let me know if it works for you!!

I really like Schmidts (specifically charcoal magnesium) but they have great ones and scents!

I haven't found a natural deodorant that works for me quite yet. I'm still sticking with the tried and true Secret clinical strength stress response. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I'm hoping one day natural deodorants will catch up to my needs. https://www.target.com/p/secret-clinical-strength-antiperspirant-38-deodorant-soft-solid-stress-resp...

So JungleMint has been my favorite. It actually works. I'm sad to say it looks unavailable on Amazon right now, but keep an eye out when it's back in stock! What other natural beauty products are you loving? Could use a good toothpaste while we're at it!

for me it's not so much the deodorant itself, but the CHARCOAL soap regimen. I've been washing my pits with charcoal soap over the past four months and can report a HUGE difference! pro tip: keep the charcoal soap in a soap dish you don't really care about (rather than your actual shower ledge) because it does stain 😂

@Marisa I'm definitely going to give charcoal a try! I have been periodically exfoliating the pits (sounds funny) but I also think that works too! Lots of build up there... this is the place for honest conversations right??


But I'm really liking Drunk Elephant's natural deodorant. Generally, just love their stuff.

I feel like I've tried everythinggg when it comes to natural deodorant (I actually used dove the other day in a pinch and could smell it all day, I didn't like it!) but the two that I keep going back to are the Arm & Hammer Essentials (the juniper berry is my go-to) and Meow Meow Tweet's deodorant (the grapefruit deodorant cream is my fav). The A&H really feels like your classic deodorant, it's in stick form and isn't sticky or chalky, and it actually works to prevent smell and sweat all day and smells good! The Meow Meow Tweet is a little more out there, you can either get the stick form or cream, which I actually prefer because you can take a little pea sized amount, warm it up in your fingers and then rub it on. I find the cream is more sanitary/less messy than using the stick but it's personal preference. It smells good and lasts! And it's environmentally friendly, the stick is made out of a compostable tube and the cream is in a recyclable jar. Let me know if you try either! And for what it's worth, I just ordered a 3-pack of the A&H online because I couldn't find it at my local target and ran out of my second stick, I love it that much!
