You probably already know how crazy I am about natural products, like herbs, essential oils, and anything “green” and “clean” for my home and family.

Nothing makes me feel more rich than having my cabinets and drawers stocked with healthy, natural products.  Imagine my delight when I got a package with these goodies in the mail from Arborstead

Arborstead Natural Deodorants

Over the past several weeks, I’ve been trying out various scents of Arborstead’s natural deodorants, and I’m so pleased with this company!

I’m about to share a pretty generous giveaway with you (compliments of the fine people at Arborstead), but first I want to tell you ten things I really, really love about Arborstead’s natural deodorants:

  1. These deodorants work!  Yes, we’ve already had a few 80-degree days here in Texas, so I’ve put these babies to the test.    I even had my sister (a self-professed “heavy sweater”) try these deodorants as well, and she was very impressed with the results. Unlike most natural deodorants, we didn’t have to apply these deodorants throughout the day in order to stay stink-free.
  2. The variety of deodorant scents is impressive.  Maybe I’m a bit silly, but I don’t like “boring” products!   Arborstead offers a variety of herb-inspired fragrances, including Lemongrass & Eucalyptus, Sage & Juniper, Ginger & Lime, Lavender (my personal fave), Patchouli & Ylang YlangPatchouli & Clove , Bergamont & Black Pepper and Rosemary.
  3. There’s something for everyone.  A lot of natural body products I’ve tried are mostly geared for women, but Arborstead offers several scents that are decidedly masculine.  Take the Patchouli & Ylang Ylang deodorant, for example.  This one won’t leave your man smelling like a girl!
  4.  No worries about chemicals.  Arborstead only uses super “clean” ingredients for their deodorants and other natural products.  You can check out what’s inside their deodorants right here.
  5. The deodorants come in a convenient deodorant stick.  This is a big one for me!  If you’re accustomed to the store bought stuff, this might be a drawing point for you, as well.  I really enjoy using a product that is healthy and convenient, and Arborstead deodorant is both.
  6. It doesn’t stain my clothes.  I’ve worn a variety of clothing over the past few weeks (everything from heavier “winter” clothes on the chilly days, to lighter, warm weather shirts on the hot days), and these deodorants don’t stain or leave greasy spots.
  7. A little goes a long way.  I found that I hardly had to roll my stick of deodorant up, or too much of the product would smear on.  The old saying, “A dab will do” applies to these products!  (Which, of course, means a longer lasting and more cost effective deodorant.)
  8. You could actually eat the ingredients!  Not that it’s a good idea, but I think it’s pretty noteworthy that these deodorants contain only “healthy” ingredients (organic virgin coconut oil, natural beeswax, raw shea butter, arrowroot powder, baking soda, kaolin clay, avocado oil, and essential oils).
  9. It’s gentle on sensitive skin.  This is another biggie for our family, since skin allergies are an issue from time to time.  The natural ingredients in Arborstead deodorants will baby your skin!
  10. It isn’t just about deodorant!  Arborstead offers a variety of natural products in addition to deodorant, including lip balm (my favorite Arborstead scent is grapefruit), baby powder, furniture polish and even an all natural lip gloss.

    Posted on April 17, 2014 at 11:20 pm
  3. Yes! Tom’s of Maine didn’t work for me. Right now I’m using Primal Pit Paste and loving it!

  4. I have tried it–but have yet to get used to it, lol!

    Posted on April 17, 2014 at 10:30 pm
  5. I have! But I’m not in love with the one I currently have. I need to try making it or buy a different one before it starts getting much warmer. 🙂

    Posted on April 17, 2014 at 10:28 pm
  6. Yes, I have tried natural deodorant. I have made my own.

  10. I haven’t tried natural deodorants yet, but I really want to – what I’m using now is not working for me.

    Posted on April 16, 2014 at 12:02 am
  11. I use natural deodorant all the time! I would love to try this company!

    1. I think you’d love Arborstead, Jill!

      Posted on April 15, 2014 at 5:43 pm
  12. I’ve tried Toms of Maine, and it’s okay but I don’t really like it. I usually just do without, but when I need it I use a regular drugstore brand. Would love to find something natural that really works!

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 7:49 pm
  13. I usually make my own.

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 7:46 pm
  14. I’ve tried other natural deodorant products but really didn’t feel that I got the odor protection I would prefer. Am currently using a mineral based one that is pretty good, but haven’t used it in warmer weather yet, so I’m interested in trying this and seeing how it fares!

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 6:27 pm
  15. I’ve never used a purchased natural deodorant before, but recently experimented with making my own. I’m enjoying it!

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 6:14 pm
  16. I have tried natural deodorant before, unfortunately it has not worked as well as the yuck aluminum kind. My almost 11 year old daughter has started wearing deodorant and I would LOVE to find a natural kind for us.

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 5:51 pm
    1. My ten year old used one of the sample deodorants and really enjoyed it. I totally relate with you, Kimberly. As my daughters get older, it’s so important for me to have natural, healthy personal products for them.

      Posted on April 15, 2014 at 5:43 pm
  17. I’m still using Trulys but need to order more. Think I might try this.

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 2:26 pm
    1. I think you’ll enjoy these products, Emily. The Lavender scent is SO lovely!

      Posted on April 15, 2014 at 5:42 pm
  18. I love using natural deodorant! I may just have to try Arborstead.

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 12:06 pm
  20. I have tried several different “natural” deodorants, but so far haven’t found one that works really well for me. I was excited to hear that your sister who is a self-proclaimed “heavy sweater” was impressed!!

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 11:08 am
  21. I use arm n hammers natural aluminum free deaodarant, and it works great. I would really love to try this brand too.

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 9:44 am
  22. Thank you so much for the wonderful review, Kristy! We are so glad you like our products so much. Tim also loves using Bergamot & Black Pepper as a manly scent. In the near future we will also be releasing moisturizing cream, sunscreen lotion, body scrub and bath salts. If anyone has any questions, we’re more than happy to answer them!

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 9:26 am
    1. Sounds wonderful, Laura! I’ll look forward to trying your other wonderful products! Keep us informed!

      Posted on April 15, 2014 at 5:40 pm
  23. I use natural deodorant, but I haven’t yet found one that completely works for me.

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 9:15 am
  24. I have never tried a natural deodorant, but have recently been thinking about it. I struggle between not wanting sweaty armpits at the gym and no wanting to put icky chemicals on my skin and into my body.

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 9:12 am
  25. Yes, I really like using natural deodorant.

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 9:09 am
  26. Sounds like a great product!

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 9:09 am
  27. I’ve used natural deodorant exclusively for the past several years. And I still have not found one that I love…. I hope this is the end of my search!

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 8:44 am
    1. I hope it is too, Jess!

      Posted on April 15, 2014 at 5:39 pm
  28. I tried Tom’s, but wasn’t impressed, lol. I have really wanted to try a deodorant that was totally natural, and Arborstead products look wonderful! If it’s organic and stops the stink, it doesn’t get any better! Would love to win. Thanks, Kristi!

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 8:44 am
  29. I’ve been using a natural deodorant for 3 years, but it doesn’t always work.

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 7:55 am
    1. I’ve had the same trouble with many other natural deodorants. I really, really enjoy Arborstead products and am thankful the deodorant is so effective!

      Posted on April 15, 2014 at 5:38 pm
  30. Yes, I only use natural deodorant. K

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 7:50 am
  31. Yes, I’ve tried natural deodorants, and have found some that I like, but I’d be interested in trying the Arborstead version because it is really free from any ingredients I can’t precisely identify!

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 7:16 am
    1. I LOVE Arborstead’s natural ingredient list!

      Posted on April 15, 2014 at 5:37 pm
  32. I’ve tried “tom’s” , but I’ve never tried anything like this 🙂

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 7:11 am
  33. I have tried a PLETHORA of natural deodorants. So far, exactly ONE has actually worked.

    Posted on April 14, 2014 at 7:06 am
    1. I totally relate, Rachel! I can say the same. It’s always a pleasant surprise to find a natural deodorant that is effective. I’m really loving Arborstead’s products!
