Here’s a fun roundup of brands of natural deodorant that works. However, I know a handful of you health saints want to incorporate natural deodorant but are subject to the horrible rash that develops inside your pits.

I am one of them. Having a tough time finding something that works without making my armpits break out in a rash that leaves me unable to lower my arms into a relaxed state.

Blisters, even. It’s brutal. So know you’re not alone. Here are a few tips that have helped me wear natural deodorant without the rash:

  1. Rotate brands, which has become a game-changer for me.
  2. Skip wearing any deodorant after shaving and give your pits a break.
  3. Look for baking soda-free brands and those free of essential oils, both of which can cause irritation.
  4. Add an armpit detox or mask to your weekly routine.
  5. Dry brush your extremities, even your armpits.

When you do wear deodorant, make sure you rotate through different brands. Always opting for deodorant and never antiperspirants. Here is the reader’s favorite natural deodorant that works.
