Like a lot of people, deodorants are a must-have for me, but despite the large number of brands available in the market, there aren't very many that I can actually use.  I have very sensitive skin that gets easily irritated, sometimes even with brands that claim to use natural ingredients (or they are just plain ineffective).  While I do have a drugstore brand that I can rely on, I have been looking for a natural, aluminum-free deodorant option for a while now.  The Lavanila Healthy Deodorant is one such product.  I have the Vanilla-Coconut version, but they also make 5 other vanilla-based versions (fragrance-free version also available). This deodorant utilizes natural ingredients to provide anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects, and of course, odor prevention.

Lavanila Healthy Deodorant Vanila-Coconut has a sweet, nutty fragrance to it that I love.  I only notice the fragrance while applying, and I don't think it clashes with my perfumes in any way.  It could be that I have gotten used to the smell, but I think it's quite subtle.  The roll-on feels slightly wet and cool, but there is no noticeable wetness to it on the skin - actually feels slightly dry and powdery.  It goes on clear and doesn't leave any white residue on clothes unless I rub on way too much product.  I have been using this deodorant daily, and it has been quite effective both with regular activities as well as moderate exercise.  I haven't had any skin irritation with it either.  This doesn't have any antiperspirant action, at least as far as I can tell, but it's really not an issue for me.  I have to admit, though, I spend most of my time indoors and don't really have a stressful, running around trying to get things done kind of job.  I can't tell for sure how well this would hold up if are a serious runner, for example, but for my lifestyle, this is definitely a healthy deodorant option that has lived up to its claims.

Lavanila does make a Sport Luxe deodorant, which I assume would be a better pick if you are looking for a heavy-duty version.  It is currently listed as limited edition, but I do hope they make it permanent.  Also, this product uses essential oils and naturally derived ingredients, and while I have not had any skin irritation or other issues with it so far, do test it out (and/or buy from a store with a generous return policy) to be sure it is suitable for you.
