Lavanila Healthy Deodorant

I’ve been on a search for years for an aluminum-free deodorant.  I’ve tried EVERYTHING but invariably after a day or two,  I reluctantly go back to the aluminum standby.  Yes, I have my limits – a smelly yoga teacher is not a good idea.

Even Dr. Oz is  talking about deodorants vs. anti-perspirants and choosing lower (or no) aluminum in our products:

While the jury may be still out on aluminum’s relationship with Alzheimer’s… my thought is, why take that chance?

So…while I’ve had this “wellness junkie” intention for a long time, I haven’t been able to find a satisfactory product that’s safe and effective. Until now.

Again, I must credit the No More Dirty Looks ladies and their stellar recommendation for Lavanila Healthy Deodorant.  It has no aluminum, no Paraben, no Propylene Glycol or other harsh chemicals.

This all-natural, fresh scented deodorant does provide long-lasting protection.  After teaching 2 or 3 classes, I still smell like the subtle lavender flower that I applied that morning. Amazing.  Plus… to be a good wellness junkie guide, I’ve been using this product for two weeks and have NO complaints.  I wanted to make sure it truly works and it does… because it is pricey – $18.  But worth every penny.  While I love the Vanilla Lavender, it is a bit girly-scented.  So, for the men in your world, I’d try the Vanilla Coconut or Vanilla Grapefruit.  This company also has baby and body products that look wonderful.

Where to buy? Sephora carries some Lavanila products, but call first. My store only stocks the baby line.  Prices are the same on amazon and the company site.

You know… I think I know what everyone’s getting for the holidays… aluminum-free bodies…
