Natural Deodorant Balm | Gentle Without Baking Soda
Natural Deodorant Balm | Gentle Without Baking Soda
Made specifically for sensitive skin, our gentle deodorant blend is just as effective as our active blend - we just make it without the baking soda.
A refreshing natural deodorant blend that works with the body, not against it. Tried and tested to be effective for 12+ hours of freshness.
The sweat our body produces is odourless. It only produces an odour once it reacts with the odour-causing microorganisms in your underarm microbiome.
So the solution to prevent odour isn't going against nature by blocking pores and sweat glands to stop sweat altogether. Sweat is healthy. Otherwise, our bodies wouldn't be sweating.
The solution is to balance the amount of good and bad organisms in your underarm microbiome with plants with nature. If they are in balance, your sweat can not produce odour. Simple as that.
That is why we make our natural deodorant balms from our herbal infusion of Calendula flowers, Nettle leaves, Burdock Root and Cleavers leaves. No aluminium, no parabens, no preservatives, no manipulation, no force, lightly scented with organic, floral geranium essential oil.
and it works! Because nature knows best...

We believe in a return to nature, centred around a sustainable cycle where we should only take what we can give back. That’s why every Earth To You order starts and ends its journey as a seed in the soil.
With the intention of revitalising arid farmland, we donate a portion of each sale to a programme called the Forest Garden Approach. Run by a charity called Trees For The Future, the 4-year programme gives farmers the skills they need to sustainably support their communities and grow thousands of trees. Every seed planted helps to reverse environmental degradation, restore biodiversity, and remove megatons of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. But more than that, Forest Garden Farmers gain access to income and food for themselves and their families, breaking the cycle of poverty and hunger. Just as the earth gifts us with healing and nourishing herbs and botanicals, we must give back and do what we can to protect the soils we come from. This sustainable approach to re-forestation brings valuable nutrients back to the soil, breathing new life and hope into over-farmed and arid lands.
Ingredients & Plant intelligence
IN-HOUSE HERBAL INFUSION
The underarm microbiome consists of good and bad bacteria found on the epidermis, in the sweat glands, sweat pores, and hair follicles. Even though the sweat is odourless, it produces an odour once it reacts with the odour-causing bacteria in the underarm microbiome. The internal solution to prevent odour is to replace the bad bacteria with the good ones through diet.
The external solution is to introduce good bacteria to the underarm so that bad ones don't have a chance to cause odour. Our in-house herbal infusion of Calendula, Nettles, Burdock Root and Cleavers does just that to prevent odour without blocking pores or sweat glands - meaning you can sweat and smell great.
Various proteins excreted in sweat are broken down into odorous chemicals by the bacteria. Nettle's ability to deal with protein waste help the body to eliminate this protein waste before bacteria can act on it.
Probiotics inside Calendula are made up of good bacteria that help keep your body fight off odour causing bacteria.
Burdock Root has historically been used to cleanse and purify the body. It helps remove waste and bad bacteria by allowing the sweat to pass through the epidermis easily. It also helps sebaceous glands to move oil through them, which lessens the inflammation, preventing acne or boils in the underarm.
Cleavers has a unique abilitiy to nurtilize odour in nature. When Doe’s have their fawns, they choose large patches of cleavers as their sacred space to give birth. It disguises their smell, keeping them safe.
How To Use
Take a pea-sized amount of the deodorant. We recommend using the spatula to avoid introducing any bacteria into the jar.
Then, simply melt the balm between your fingers and gently massage on to clean underarms.
Our Natural Deodorant Balm may melt in warm conditions. But this does not change the efficiency of the deodorant. This is not a requirement but if you like to restore the consistency, just pop it in the fridge for 10-20 minutes and it will solidify again.
Why switch to natural deodorant?
Sweating is our body’s built-in method for detoxifying and purifying itself. However, mainstream antiperspirants often use toxic ingredients intended to block the pores and sweat glands in order to control odour. This gradually causes a plugging effect, meaning that although sweat is still being produced, it can no longer escape from the apocrine glands in the underarm.
This causes a build-up of toxins, many of which have been proven to disrupt our reproductive and developmental hormones.
Our balm is made with our in-house slow infusion of herbs and botanicals, which prevents odour without blocking pores or sweat glands and allowing the body to breathe freely.
