This was the FIRST time I have tried an all natural deodorant.  I admit, I was a little scared.  I was picturing a funky, thick paste in my pits or smelling strongly of “earth” (aka, my regular funk).  Boy, was I wrong!!  This deodorant is AMAZING!!  I actually love the texture, which is nice and smooth, way more than my mainstream pit protection.  It keeps me fresh and dry just as well as my chemical laden stick.

Laura from Arborstead sent me a full size of the Ginger & Lime Deodorant because I LOVE LOVE LOVE lime.  This stuff is made with beeswax, coconut oil and essential oils so your deodorant doesn’t have an overpowering, fake scent.  Really, who wants floral pits that you can smell across the room?  NOT ME.  Arborstead’s deodorant is free of aluminum, alcohol, parabens and sulfates so no weird chemical cocktails are being smeared onto your skin.  Let me give you my opinion on all of the scents…

Ginger & Lime – This one is very earthy and doesn’t have an overly citrus-y smell.  It’s JUST right!

Rosemary – I usually don’t like Rosemary in any form, but this one is petty subtle.

Patchouli & Ylang Ylang – This is the ultimate hippie deodorant.  Smells like yummy incense!

Bergamot & Black Pepper – For having Black Pepper in the name, this one has an interesting sweet, yet spicy scent.  Would be great for a guy!

Sage & Juniper – This scent reminds me of summer and fresh cut grass.

Patchouli & Clove – I think this would be the ultimate hippie scent volume 2.  It is a nice, warm scent.

Lavender – A fan favorite, I’m sure.  This is a great calming scent that I have grown to love.

Lemongrass & Eucalyptus – I love the minty citrus scent to this deodorant.  It smells SO yummy & fresh!  This one is my FAVORITE!

The coolest thing about Arborstead is their deodorant samples.  Not only can you try a variety of scents at a great price, the tiny tubes are perfect to stick in your purse, diaper bag or pocket for when you need to battle the stink during the day!  Which scent would YOU choose?
