Finding a good deodorant or antiperspirant can be hard enough but the decision is even harder when there is concern over the ingredients. It would be great if products with all natural ingredients worked really well. If they did the decision would be easy.

Natural deodorants rely on vegetable enzymes, herbs or essential oils to neutralize or destroy odors. Many natural ingredients are known for their antibacterial qualities. Ingredients like lavender and mint are just a few that work on odors and also provide a pleasant scent. Tea tree oil and sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) also work very well for destroying odors.

Lurking...

Since having kids, I have found I have gotten.....stinkier.

I tried the Crystal Rock, which worked ok, but not perfect. Then I bought this stuff (this is a link from Amazon, but I got it at Whole Foods)

It is AWESOME. I live in a very warm climate so I am constantly sweating, and yet, I don't stink anymore!! I also don't have the continual rash I got from regular deodorants. I'm not sure if all of the crystal rock roll-ons work so well, but this one really works for me. And I've been searching for one for years! Tom's of Maine did not work for me, either.

I have used a different brand of the stone (can't remember the name, sorry), and it works ok, but not as well as the Roll-On. That stuff is miraculous!!

The others that you listed, I have never tried.
