Finding a postpartum deodorant that is safe AND combats stink is WAY harder than I ever anticipated. As many of you know, I try to use the safest products whenever possible and finding a great deodorant was difficult! You may remember a few months back when I raved about Native, so when they reached out to me for a collaboration – I was stoked! There is nothing better than when you already love a product and they reach out to work together. This is the deodorant that I have been using for the past 9 months or so and I could not love it more. The ingredients are safe BUT effective which is exactly what you want/need in a postpartum deodorant. You can read all about their ingredients here! I have had the coconut/vanilla scent for the past 9 months but they just came out with their fall scents that I was super excited to try out! The Orange & Honeysuckle one is my favorite! If you tend to have sensitive skin, they have one specifically for you – here!

The biggest key to switching over to an aluminum free/natural deodorant is detoxing your armpits first. What is THAT you may ask?!?! It’s a way to correct the bacterial imbalances in your armpit and you will probably notice a difference in the way your sweat smells just after doing the detox. If you do not use the detox and start automatically using a more natural deodorant, you may find that you still smell a “stink” – so I highly recommend the detox first!
Detox Your Pits
Take 1 tablespoon of bentonite clay, 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar and 1-2 tsp of water. Mix together in a wooden bowl until you get a cream-like consistency. Apply this to your armpits in an even layer and leave it on for 5-20 minutes. You may want to gradually increase the amount of time since it may irritate you in the beginning. If it stings, remove immediately. You’ll want to do this daily until you no longer have a stink that you notice or until the natural deodorant isn’t irritating you! 🙂 I did the detox for 5 days!
Native also sells mens deodorant which I recently just scooped up for my husband because I have been wanting him to switch over as well! These make AWESOME stocking stuffers for the holiday season and you can even include a little card with the armpit detox on it with instructions! Would be a cute little idea for someone you care about!
I wore this outfit a few nights ago when we went out to dinner with friends! It was the first day that Miles didn’t get sick in the car (thank God) in about a week and I could have cried happy tears. Turns out that it was an ear infection throwing his equilibrium off. I am wearing my absolute favorite high waisted legging, new favorite scrunch booties and a few fall layers!
