It’s a smelly game of trial and error, but I’ve done it and I’m finally at peace with my daily pit routine. Why? Because I have found the best all natural deodorant out there. I went thru this a few years ago when I switched to all natural deodorant and I thought I had found the best brand for me…I even did a blog post about it here. It wasn’t until I started working at a job that required me to move around constantly and sweat a little in a fitted t-shirt to realize that my favorite brand of all natural deodorant just wasn’t cutting it anymore. So I started another sweaty, smelly and expensive quest.
I have probably tried almost every brand of all natural deodorant out there, from the cheaper, so-called “all natural” brands to the super expensive $15 a bottle brands to the DIY Etsy brands. I have tried liquidy roll-ons, rub-in creams, gel based sticks and baking soda-free, clay based concoctions. I’m officially over it. I have found my deo-for-life. I have found Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant.
Schmidt’s is an all natural, cruelty-free and vegan company based out of Portland, Oregon. They have 5 different scents of cream-based, rub-it-in deodorants (including fragrance free) which is great since I get bored easily. I have tried the Lavender Sage and Ylang Ylang Calendula and I love both of them.
The best part about this all natural deodorant is simple: it friggin works…and it works great. A lot of natural deodorants stop working half way thru the day and you need to constantly reapply. Not with Schmidt’s! The only con would be the hassle of rubbing it in but once you get used to it, it really isn’t so bad. AND…2 days ago they announced (via their Instagram account @schmidtsdeo) that they will be revealing some new products. By the looks of it we should be expecting to see their wonderful formulas available in a mess-free, stick style. They also stated that as soon as the line launches, they will provide a discount code so if you’re ready to make the switch and give them a try, go on and follow them. Your pits will thank you, trust me.
