REVIEW | EO Organic Deodorant Sprays

$ 7 | 4 oz.

The best way to stay fresh all day is to eliminate odor at its source. Organic Ethanol stops odor-causing bacteria at its source. Blended with pure organic essential oils, these effective deodorant sprays are the perfect way to stay fresh and clean, organically.

CITRUS – Organic Ethanol, Purified Water, EO Essential Oil Blend [Organic Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Organic Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Organic Geranium Maculatum Oil, Organic Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary).

VETIVEROrganic Ethanol, Purified Water, EO Essential Oil Blend [Organic Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Organic Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Organic Geranium Maculatum Oil, Organic Vetiveria Zizanoides Root Oil, Organic Cedrus Deodara Wood Oil, Organic Cananga Odorata Flower Oil, Organic Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil]. 

TEA TREE – Organic Ethanol, Purified Water, EO® Essential Oil Blend [Organic Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Organic Maleleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Lead Oil, Organic Vetiveria Zizanioides Root Oil, Organic Cedrus Deodara Wood Oil, Organic Cananga Odorata Flower Oil, Organic Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil].

LAVENDER – Organic Ethanol, Purified Water, EO Essential Oil Blend [Organic Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Organic Lavandula Hybrida Oil].

Ok, so these obviously all have different scent profiles on some level, but overall – the Lavender Essential Oil in each one tends to really stand out for me – leaving just a hint of Vetiver, Citrus, Tea Tree, or whatever. I wish it were reversed.

Wet for a few seconds until it air dries – then feels like it’s barely there.

Comes in a recycled blue spray bottle, with a tightly-fitting cap.

  • That it’s USDA certified organic.
  • Reasonably priced.
  • Easy to find in some of my local supermarkets like Whole Foods, or on Amazon.
  • Not sticky or greasy! 🙌🏼 YAY!
  • Pretty blue plastic bottles.
  • Tightly fitting caps.

  • May sting if used after shaving {because there’s alcohol in it}, however it stings less than most other natural brands.
  • All I smell is the Lavender in the formulas – wish they smelled more like the advertised scents.

My Experience

Since I know deodorant / antiperspirant is one of the things people usually want to swap out first – it’s important to note that, these are natural deodorants… meaning, they deodorize… which won’t block or clog your sweat glands + stop you from sweating like antiperspirants will. They’ll actually allow your body to detox…  the way it nature intended it to. By sweating. Nothing glam about that, I know.

Now that you know what to expect… I’ll just get right to it! These actually work well for me, so – I almost always have one in my stash. I love the fact that they’re fairly easy to find in stores, + pretty reasonably priced – especially for a certified organic product.

The only real issue I have is that deodorant sprays like these, that are made with grain alcohol – can sting if you use them right after shaving {owwwwweeee!}. It just kinda comes with the territory with this particular type of product, in general. So, to remedy that – I use Bubble + Bee Organic’s Sensitive Skin Cream Deo first, right after shaving / showering, + then use these as my later-on / in-between, go-to… if I need one. And 2-3 sprays usually does the trick!

Now, you’ll probably never hear me say that I’m happy to see water in a formula {like, ever}, but in this case… I’m thankful. While these still can sting a bit {on freshly shaved skin}, they probably don’t sting as much as some other natural brands might, because these aren’t just straight-up alcohol {which can burn like a MoFo!}… which brings me to my next point…

For Cancer Survivors who probably want to jump right into using an organic deodorant {been there!}, I thought I’d mention that if you’ve recently had surgery in an area close to your under-arms {like Breast Cancer / Lymph Nodes removed, etc.} I’d hold-off on using a product like this {that contains alcohol}… until I’ve healed for at least a few months first, + try an organic stick or cream deo in the mean time. Just wanted to throw that out there!

Love EO’s packaging on these… pretty, blue, recycled plastic bottles – another thing you won’t hear me say often as I usually avoid most plastic due to hormone disruptors. However, I’m not fan of glass in the bathroom for my bath + body products {skin care is another story}. The cap snaps on pretty tightly too, which is FAB. So they’re easy to travel with if you have to {also check out their NEW Certified Organic Deodorant Wipes}!

As far as the scents go… as I mentioned above, I wish these smelled a bit more like what they say they’re supposed to. I mean, you do get a hint of the advertised scents, but I just wish it were more distinct. For example – on the Citrus, I’m thinking along the lines of: Lemon, Orange, Lime, Grapefruit. Instead, all I really smell is the Lavender. And, when I think of Lavender… I’m generally not thinking “Fresh”. So, that wouldn’t usually be my first scent of choice for a deodorant {love it in my bathtub or on my pillow though}. However, lots of people like it + although I wish it were different, its not a really deal breaker for me. And, while were on the topic – I’d also love to see a touch of Spearmint or Peppermint in the Tea Tree one too – which I’ve only ever tried once. My local stores seem to only ever carry the other 3 scents, for some reason. Out of all of them, my body chemistry does best with the CLEAN {Citrus}, CHILL {Tea Tree}, + COOL {Vetiver}… in that order. The FRESH {Lavender} one, not so much.

All in all, I’d definitely re-purchase these, + have several times, so check them out if you get a chance!
