      If I can find a personal care product that is natural, and still does it’s intended job, I will buy it in a heartbeat. Our skin is our bodies largest organ, and I am acutely aware of what I put on mybody, lest it end up in my body.

      I noticed a new Arm & Hammer deodorant at my grocery store recently, it is their natural deodorant, called Arm & Hammer Essentials. I picked one up, and I have been very pleased with it’s performance.


      The deodorant comes in an oval shaped roll up container, and it measures 5 1/4” x 2 1/4“. It contains 2.5 ounces, and like the Arm & Hammer baking soda we are all so familiar with, this is also packaged with bright gold colors. It has the Arm & Hammer seal directly in the center of the container, which reads “The Standard of Purity” just below it.

      Although Arm & Hammer makes other styles of deodorant, in various scents, my store only carried the Essentials Natural Deodorant in the fresh scent.

      I love this product! Have you ever been confused by the chemical names ingredients go by these days? Tocopherol means Vitamin E, but does everyone know that? On the back of this deodorant, the upper portion of the label reads “peel here for more information“. The label pulls back to reveal a list of ingredients, how they are derived, and what they do! How great is that? Taken from the package:

      Glycol (dipropylen/propylene): Derived from natural gas from the earth

      Water: Purified water

      Sodium Stearate: Derived from palm nut/fruit

      Baking Soda: Natural mineral deposits from the earth

      Coriander Fruit Oil: Coriandrum Sativum (Coriander fruit)

      Rosemary Lea Oil: Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) leaf
