Powerful, Safe, and Natural Deodorants: Find the Best Option for You

     Over recent years, there's been a lot of discussion surrounding the use of conventional deodorant.  The concern  centers on  the powerful ingredients, such as aluminum, parabens, propylene glycol, and triclosan,  used to discourage the body from performing a very normal and necessary function.   But, finding a more natural alternative that is easy to use and effective can seem difficult.  What options does a consumer have?  How do they narrow down and find the most effective product for them?


Read on to learn more about the four options Lemongrass Spa Products offer and  tips for knowing which might be right for you.


1.  Natural Deodorant Spray

          This deodorant option  keeps odor at bay  with it's enhanced blend of witch hazel and organic essential oil blend.   It can be used alone  or apply before the Deodorant Paste to provide ultimate protection.  Great choice for pre-teens!  Easily fits in gym bags or a handbag for a quick touch up after a workout   Vegan, aluminum-free, paraben-free, and fragrance free!



2. Natural Deodorant Paste

          Don't be deterred by the term "paste".  This formula is designed to neutralize underarm odor and reduce wetness. The cream-to-powder formula is handcrafted with organic essential oils, baking soda, and shea butter for all day control.   It's my experience that this option is the most heavy duty choice. Effective even in the most stressful or humid conditions. This is my personal choice in  deodorant protection. It never fails me! Vegan, cruelty-free, paraben free and aluminum free formula.



3.  Charcoal Deodorant Stick

          Is your skin sensitive to baking soda blends?  Here's an option to check out. This all-natural deodorant stick is handcrafted with activated charcoal and bentonite clay to help absorb wetness and neutralize odor.  Candelilla wax  in the formula prevents clogging and toxin build up.   Completely free from baking soda, aluminum,  and parabens.



4. Natural Deodorant Stick

          Avoid irritation with this deodorant stick containing moisturizing cocoa butter, tea tree essential oil, and customer-favorite scents. Perhaps most resembles conventional deodorants in terms of texture and use. It has the power of arrowroot powder, baking soda, and probiotics to curb odor.


Tips for helping your body adjust to a natural deodorant: 

  1. Understand your body will go through a "detox" time.  The changes you experience the first few days are not an indication of what will happen if you continue to use a natural deodorant.  During my detox time, I experienced excessive and uncomfortable wetness. I also needed to re-apply towards the end of the day.  After 3 days, my body adjusted. The excessive wetness disappeared, I no longer needed a second application, and I've been sucessfully using LGS deodorants ever since (5 years and counting!).
  2. Drink plenty of water during your time of detox.  Help your body flush out by providing extra hydration.
  3. Remember, a little goes a long way!  Only a couple of swipes of product are needed.  Applying too much can cause discoloration on clothing and a general sense of claminess. Even during detox, it's better to apply a normal amount in the morning and re-apply later in the day if or  as needed.
