Some people might think of herbal deodorant as the less-effective hippie relation of a favourite high-strength aerosol version, but with longer-lasting formulations and more appealing scents, a plethora of new natural options are landing on shelves.
A fresh option is Arrow Protect Aluminium-Free Deodorant. The fresh pink grapefruit and mint scent of this fantastic all-natural deodorant lasts, even through sweat-tastic exercise sessions. It has no alcohol or aluminium, making it kind to all skin and sensitive types in particular.
Herbal Deodorant from Aesop is another good option. This is basically great-smelling water, yet the botanically based zingy spritz is a real success. Its blend of sage leaf witch hazel and zinc salt works to neutralise body odour as effectively as any heavy-duty not natural variety.
And finally, to smell divine, Dr Hauschka Rose Deodorant is for you. A delicious scent of genuine roses, this grown-up fragrance lasts all day before gently fading. Formulated with jojoba oil, it rolls on easy, hands down beating the near toxic cloud of an aerosol any day.
