Switching to a more natural deodorant, free of aluminum and antiperspirant, is easier said than done. In my experience, the more natural options don’t always work! 

I have switched between natural deodorants several times as one may work for awhile and then quit working. 

The dangers in aluminum based deodorant are that they you are at an increased the risk of developing Alzheimer’s later in life by 60 percent. There is also a link to breast cancer. Bottom line, when you can avoid putting aluminum into your body, the better! 

Natural deodorants have less irritants and can reduce razor burn. Charcoal based ones help detoxify your pits, and natural deodorants don’t block your pores so they reduce your body’s natural odor. Sweating is actually beneficial to our health and antiperspirants block that.

Luckily, you can purchase aluminum-free, fragrance free deodorants at Target! 

Some of my favorite brands are:


Native (though some have fragrance)


Primally Pure 

Have you made the switch yet?
