So, I’m always on the lookout for great products, particularly healthy products free of harsh, harmful chemicals. These days, I have specifically been looking for a new deodorant brand one that is natural as I have been hearing a lot about the possible link between the chemicals in antiperspirant (including aluminum) and breast cancer.

I’ve tried a few “natural” deodorants with little success. I am very active (at the gym 6-7 times a week), so I wanted something that I could feel confident would work with a busy and active schedule. I recently tried Lavanila’s natural deodorant in Vanilla Passion Fruit, and I LOVE IT! I think this is the winner!


Lavanila Laboratories The Healthy Deodorant ($18) is a powerful natural deodorant that delivers superior odor protection and vitamin-rich nourishment without the use of commonly feared harsh chemicals. The Healthy Deodorant is a 100% healthy solution.

Lavanila Laboratories delivers a new generation of 100% healthy products that are elegant, refined, and luxurious in both formulation and design. Every offering beginning with its breakthrough fragrance collection features all-natural, vita-rich technology to nurture one’s skin, scents to indulge one’s mood, and worry-free formulations to pamper one’s soul. Lavanila is committed to using only safe, 100% natural ingredients.

After discovering this awesome deodorant (which also comes in Pure Vanilla, Vanilla Lavender, Vanilla Grapefruit [possibly my next scent to try!!], Vanilla Coconut, and Vanilla Blackberry), I had to check out their website to see what other cool products they offer. Here are some of the highlights:


Lavanila’s Forever Fragrance Oil ($26)


Every woman is devoted to their favorite fragrance, but it’s not always convenient. Lavanila’s Forever Fragrance Oil is so compact you can keep in your clutch, beach bag, desk drawer ensuring you’ll always have a scent-saver with you wherever you go.

Lavanila3With summer Fridays and lazy afternoons still in the far future, every woman is working at lightning speed trying to accomplish all their daily tasks. Good thing Lavanila Laboratories is here to check not one, but two boxes of that pesky to-do list!
