Made with only the most simple and natural ingredients – bicarbonate of soda and other natural oils, essential oils and waxes – the most incredible thing about this product is that it works.
Unlike antiperspirants, natural yogi deodorant does not block your pores. Rather it acts to neutralise odour. It does this by absorbing odour – and also creating an environment that is not conducive to the odour-causing microbes that grow in perspiration – all while offering refreshing hints of the natural essential oils. Knowing its harmlessness and the – even – health-giving values of the ingredients (you can read more about these under healing qualities of ingredients), it feels great to use.

A note on safety of use
Natural yogi deodorant has been used extensively by many who speak only of its gentle effectiveness. The ingredients are essentially harmless – one could in fact safely eat them – including the essential oils at their high levels of dilution. At the same time irritation, due to a personal reaction to one or two of the ingredients, can occur. If this happens, discontinue use for a while. But, as is also outlined on the packaging, try again later, or try another essential oil variety.
Some who use this product talk about undergoing a period of detoxification from pore-clogging antiperspirants, where what would seem to be a reaction to natural yogi deodorant is in fact the process of the body eliminating the toxins that have been stuck in the pores. Though this has not been verified it could be entertained as a possibility.
In this case, try to hold off from using deodorant (any) for a while. Some have also spoken of the power of an armpit clay mask to aid with the detoxification process. Eventually try your natural yogi deodorant again.
Though there are those that claim to have no problem with using natural yogi deodorant directly after shaving, others may find it irritating. Its individual. Gently see what works for you.
