It’s going on over 6 years now that I have been trying various brands of natural deodorant. I have tried countless different formulas with varying scents, and have never found any as effective (nor with a better fragrance) as “The Healthy Deodorant,” by LaVanila Laboratories.

I have been using “The Healthy Deodorant” for close to a month now, and have already put it to some extreme tests. The most noteworthy of these “tests” being putting it on first thing in the morning (8:00 a.m.) and then going on about a busy and very active day—which included cycling up a mountain, and then coming home and quickly changing my clothes (no shower—didn’t have time!!!), so that I could relieve my babysitter…by now it is 2:00 p.m. and guess what??  No under arm odor!! AMAZING! And, this was not just one of those random days where maybe I just didn’t sweat as much, or didn’t smell as much for some reason—I have repeated this particular “test” multiple times now, among many other just-as-active days, and still no under arm odor!! Up until now, I have had to keep an emergency stash of aluminum and chemical ridden deodorants in my cabinet for those times that I could not chance being smelly!

I am absolutely thrilled to have discovered “The Healthy Deodorant!” Finding a natural and effective deodorant has been a topic of discussion and conversations with many girlfriends, book club gatherings, and with the poor souls who work in the health and beauty section at Whole Foods, whom I have tortured with my questions about natural deodorants for years! (No exaggeration). I cannot tell you what a relief it is to find a natural deodorant that really and truly works! I am in love with this deodorant–I love how wonderful it smells, and I love the cool and refreshing feeling when applying it.

  1. Yes! I love it, and I know LaVanila is one of Jenni’s favorites too! She used it all throughout her pregnancy this past year! It even comes in travel sizes. Thanks for your recommendation Danielle!


  2. After trying tons of natural deodorants, this one still ranks very highly for me as well. I loved reading each of your opinions and honest reviews on this deodorant and am so happy that it worked so well for all of you. 🙂

    All the best,
