5 Natural Deodorants to Try

So everyone who's even a little concerned about the ingredients in antiperspirant is always on the lookout for a good deodorant, am I right? Well I've tried a bunch and I've decided to grade a few based on my experience. I'll try not to be overly subjective, but it's deodorant, so it's a pretty subjective subject.

I thought it would be nice to have a little guide to help you navigate the failure-wrought waters of natural deodorant trial and error.

To keep things simple, ratings are 1-10 (10 is best).

Natural Deodorant

1. Tom's of Maine, Lavender

Feel: --3-- Super sticky, stays sticky.
Scent: --5-- Mild, not over-powering, but definitely there
Effectiveness: --6-- worked ok for me, but I couldn't get over the sticky feel
Price: $9.99 on Amazon

​2. Herban Cowboy, Forest

Feel: --7-- Slightly sticky. Not as sticky as Tom's.
Scent: --9-- strong, unisex, definitely good for men; I want to try their superstar scent for women
Effectiveness: --7--
Price: $5.99 on on Amazon, awesome value

3. Crystal Rock (name?)

Feel: --5-- Not sticky. Can pull the skin a little if it's not wet enough. Not ideal for sensitive skin, in my opinion.
Scent: ---10-- unscented, I personally love this, but fragrance might be your thing
Effectiveness: --7-- It works, but feels like it needs to be reapplied more often than others.
Price: $6.31 on Amazon

4. Lavanila Laboratories, Coconut

Feel: --10-- Not sticky, not chalky. Perfect. Best feel.
Scent: --10--
Effectiveness: --9--
Price: $14 at Sephora. The coconut scent does not seem to be available anymore. I'd go with vanilla grapefruit.

5. Celadon Road, Coconut

Feel: --5-- Too chalky. Difficult to get it warm enough to apply. Possibly might be better in the summer or warmer climates
Scent: --10--
Effectiveness:-- 9-- when I can actually get it on!
Price: $18

Some things to keep in mind:
-All natural deodorant options need to be re-applied during the day. One application just isn't going to cut it with any product.
-It's always changing. Just because one deodorant works for me, doesn't mean it will work for you. You might find that a certain brand works for a few months, and then one day that's no longer the case. That's why I have 5 on hand! Moral of the story--mix it up.

Besides the herbal cowboy, what other deodorant can work for a male? I am looking for a natural deodorant for my honey.

I've all except the cowboy. I agree the lavanilla was the best. I also have to switch things up. I think one is great then I guess my body gets immune to it,) the cheap ol arm & hammer naturals works pretty good too.
