While all of the articles I’ve written are important to me, this alive Magazine article is particularly dear to my heart. It was an honour to write, and, as a mom, a topic I feel very strongly about. I also learned SO much while writing it.
Lately I’ve been veering away from fragrance and leaning more toward unscented products. It may have something to do with a certain little bun in my oven (yes, it’s true!) making me more sensitive to scents these days.
It’s time for another natural deodorant roundup! Since the last post, I’ve been continuing to try new products, uncovering the best of the best.
Let’s get started:
I’ll be honest: transitioning to natural deodorant is not something I’ve been looking forward to. Generally, deodorant is one of those products that just isn’t as effective in natural form. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I’ve tried plenty of natural deodorants over the years (and I’ve even written about them before). I just hadn’t found one that I really, really liked.
Great natural fragrances are notoriously difficult to find! What makes it so challenging to find a quality natural perfume is the fact that companies don’t disclose all of the ingredients in their products, considering them “trade secrets.” I personally find it crazy that companies are allowed to get away with this, and it also makes it incredibly difficult to determine if a fragrance is safe or not. Generally, I just back away and end up buying nothing.
Thankfully, Saje Natural Wellness lists its ingredients, and uses pure, natural essential oils. I recently stopped in at Saje and picked up a sample pack of their rollerball perfumes (pictured above). Isn’t it a cute case that they come in? The perfumes are absolutely lovely! The scents are bright but subtle, and wonderfully complex. So far, my favourites are Yoga and Goddess.
