After using the same deodorant for years (because it worked), it suddenly stopped working. I decided to try an aluminum free one. Having purchased other priducts from Mary&Grace previously, I decided I'd give them a try. I am so glad I did! I bought the Patchouli&Palmarosa and the Lavender&Bergamot. Not only do they smell great, they're made of all natural ingredients and provide up to two days protection. The biggest plus for me is that they're aluminum free. I am a forever fan!
This calming scent is known to help balance feelings of worry. It's earthy tones, while pleasant enough to be enjoyed by anyone, is favored among those with a higher level of masculine energy.

**New to natural deodorant? Please read**
If you are switching from a commercial brand of deodorant/antiperspirant, you may notice your body going through a "detox period" when you initially start to use your new, all-natural deodorant. THIS IS COMPLETELY NORMAL. I recommend keeping your deodorant stick with you, so that you may reapply as needed. The amount of times you need to reapply should lessen with each passing day, until you finally even out. Detox periods typically last no more than a week or so.
Why does this happen?
Most commercial brands contain aluminum (to clog the pores and slow down the sweating process), and parabens (an added preservative that is absorbed into the skin). Upon making the switch to all-natural, your body will respond by ridding itself of the toxins built up in that area. Keep in mind, this product is not an antiperspirant. Our pores were made to breathe. Our deodorant was created to help destroy odor causing bacteria, while protecting your skin as it goes through it's natural processes day to day.
