Keeping your pits fresh: what to expect from a natural deodorant

Keeping your pits fresh: what to expect from a natural deodorant

Natural deodorants are pretty intimidating and if you’re used to the usual high street brands you probably think they’re not as effective. In all my sustainable swaps posts I’ve mentioned a different brand, each with a different formula. As someone who is deep into the world of natural deodorants, I thought it was a good time to talk about what switching is like and give a quick run down of what I thought of each brand I’ve tried.

Up until a week ago, I’d accumulated the most immense pile of plastic – I wish I’d took a photo because I was practically wading through it as it sat on my bedroom floor. Knowing I had overwhelmed myself with a responsibility I couldn’t maintain, I separated a manageable bag full of plastic and threw the rest away. Of my planned posts, this wasn’t one of them but I know now how important it is to emphasise the importance of choosing your battles. I’d been trying to tackle the plastic waste produced by a household of five students. This was a totally unrealistic goal (especially with the amount of uni work I’m swamped with at the minute) and it took up until now for me to realise this.
