Default natural deoderant recommendations?

I have successfully switched to natural deodorant. I've been through the detox and I can wear it without having to put it on every 30 seconds to avoid smell. BUT my armpits are broke out like a teenager going through puberty. Tons of what I assume are tiny pimples. They don't hurt but it looks horrendous. So I assume I need to find a different brand. I am currently using meow meow tweet in the lemon eucalyptus stick. I really liked the lavender bergamot scent but it didn't work as well for me. Actually I love all their products I have tried. I've started using an acne wash on my pits and surrounding area trying to get it under control. But I don't want to have to deal with it all. Maybe I'm still detoxing? I can't use anything with large amounts of baking soda. So I prefer baking soda free or just a tiny amount. I will use a lot style deodorant but I definitely prefer a stick. So what have you lovely ladies found that works, doesn't contain talc, or lots of baking soda?

I love funk butter, but I think that is mainly baking soda. Have you tried Toms deo?

I use rubbing alcohol on freshly washed pits, and then I follow up with Kiss My Face liquid roll-on in lavender once my armpits are dry. That combo works really well for me. I found that the alcohol was the key to helping natural deodorants work. Of course, I don't shave my underarms as a rule, so that may have been part of my difficulty in the first place... (I also have very sensitive skin, so baking soda was out.) But this combo has me taken care of with no irritation whatsoever.

I do have the toms deo in my purse. Its my back up I surpassed the power of my deo deo. Lol it actually doesn't seem to be too bad. I think I will try it all by itself today and see how it does. But I will also check into these others! Thank you ladies.

She did on the 11th and today is Denise birthday. I wish I could be there in person. Her deo is awesome and the only one that works for me in all the ones I tried.

Geo Deo is my absolute fav but I haven't been able to find it since the first time I bought it. Found it at Meijer 2 years ago when they first opened their store here and the one stick lasted me until earlier this year. So now I'm using the Tom's "long lasting" in the baby powder scent. It seems to work fine but I quit traditional antiperspirants years and years ago so I'm at a point where I don't need deodorant all the time. My only complaint with the Tom's is that it's pretty wet once it's on. lol So I have to rub it in with a piece of toilet paper to avoid getting it all over my clothes.

Apricot is my favorite, and the only one that I don't need to apply more then once a day. I do want to try that veggiewich, or whatever that deo was that someone linked. I want to try the lemongrass!

I need to get back to trying to ditch mainstream deoderant. I have a deoderant crystal I was using for a little while.

Hope your armpit issue goes away soon, OP!

There definitely was an adjustment period for me. I had to put deo on a million times a day at first. Now I just put it on in the morning unless it's a particularly sweaty day then sometimes twice. I tried the toms as my only deo and my armpits got red and peely in like 3 days. so I'm back on the meow meow tweet. But paired with using the acne wash on my pits its seemed to at least chill out. I'm going to order the veggiewich as soon as I have the spare funds. I did a bit too much impulse shopping this week.

I think I only got through the switch because I did it in winter so I wasn't as sweaty and smelly. By the time it started warming up I was mostly good to go.
