Over the years, I’ve slowly been making the switch to using as many natural products as I can in my daily routine. I just feel better when I know that less chemicals and more natural ingredients are touching my body. I’ve found natural shampoo, moisturizer and even makeup that I love, but one natural product that has eluded me is natural deodorant. It probably should have been the first product I switched out considering how much my skin absorbs it, but at the end of the day I just couldn’t give up the guaranteed odor protection that traditional deodorant offers. That was until I tried out Tom’s of Maine....
Tom’s of Maine Long Lasting Deodorant provides natural, long lasting odor protection without aluminum, parabens or artificial preservatives. I’m not sure why it took me so long to try it. Boy have I been missing out! I mean, who doesn’t want 24 hour odor protection?! This girl sure does! Tom’s of Maine is the #1 natural deodorant brand with a number of award-winning products among its deodorant portfolio. So, you can’t go wrong with which deodorant you try. That being said, II’m going to talk about two of my favorites today. I use the Wild Lavender and Fresh Apricot scents depending on my mood. No matter what, I want to smell great obviously, but just exactly what I want to smell, well, that can change.

If I’m feeling stressed out, for instance, Wild Lavender, is just the ticket. The relaxing lavender scent makes me feel like I just walked into a spa. Fresh Apricot, on the other hand, is perfect for those days I need a little pick me up. It’s invigorating and makes me forget all about the fact that my kiddos had me up half the night. Haha! All I need to get going on those over tired mornings is to put on my Fresh Apricot and grab a cuppa coffee...even if I have to drink it in my kid’s bathroom as I throw on my deodorant before we leave for school drop off! That fragrance that wakes me right up is derived from natural tea tree oil, so I don’t have to worry about it coming from a million and one different chemical sources. The less ingredients the better right?!
So, if you too have been wanting to make the natural deodorant switch, I urge you to give Tom’s of Maine a try! And when you do, I want to hear all about how great it feels to not have to worry about how you smell when you work up a sweat. Because you’ll be smelling like roses my friends. Actually, you’ll be smelling like lavender and apricots!
