Humble Brands kindly sent me their all natural deodorant to try out three weeks ago and I have been using the Essential Lavender one each day. These are currently made in three “scents” – Essential Cedarwood, and Simply Unscented being the other two. These only contain 4-5 ingredients! I love a good simple product. Humble is cruelty-free, organic/non GMO, and free of aluminum, parabens, dyes, artificial bactericides, and alcohol.
I have tried out a few other natural deodorants and prior to this one had been using the Nubian Heritage Honey and Black Seed All Natural Deodorant for several months. I liked that one but the scent was very strong – almost too strong. It took me a while to get used to. Humble deodorants on the other hand are only very lightly scented and I can hardly smell it once I’ve applied it. While some people might not like that, I absolutely love it because as a botanical perfumer, I don’t want to be wearing a deodorant that interferes with my nose while working with essential oils in my lab. Also, in my opinion, I don’t believe your deodorant should double as your perfume.
Humble deodorant contains these simple ingredients: organic corn starch, organic olive oil, organic beeswax, all natural baking soda, and the lavender and cedarwood also contain essential oil, of course.
I find you have to warm the stick on your skin for a moment before applying (probably because I live in freezing Vermont) but once it warms a bit it glides right on. An extra few seconds is a small price to pay for keeping unwanted chemicals off your skin and out of your bloodstream. I really like this formula and have found that it does a good job of keeping odor at bay for a full day. I haven’t used it during any intense workouts so I can’t report on that, but for day-to-day use I am very happy with it. I plan on convincing my whole family that they should switch to using this deodorant, and would definitely repurchase.
Humble deodorants are $7.50 each if you subscribe for recurring delivery (every 1, 2, or 3 months), or $8.00 for a one-time purchase. Definitely one of the best all natural deodorants I’ve tried in the past several years and I’d highly recommend! xo – Naomi*DisclaimerThis post includes pr samples.
