The Great Deodorant Hunt: Part 2

Burt's Bees was bought by Clorox in 2008. That's right, the brand known for making bleach. I'm not gonna lie, it doesn't give me much confidence in the company continuing to create clean products. But this deodorant seems to be keeping my hopes alive.

Burts Bees Herbal Spray Deodorant uses sage, lemon and lavender oil to combat odors. Lavender is a natural antiseptic, and lemon oil is antibacterial. Combined, the two naturally neutralize. The scent is strongly herbal, but shortly after application it fades.

Does it work? Let me put it this way: last night I sweat through an hour of heated yoga and I smelled like roses afterwards. Okay, maybe not roses. Probably geraniums, because that's the scent I'm currently using this spring.

While it doesn't use any organic ingredients, the little bottle is clean. It only contains five ingredients, and neither propylene glycol nor preservatives rear their ugly heads. Be forewarned ladies, the formula does contain alcohol, which can sting if you shave your underarms. The liquid formula, does however have an upside: zero residue. This is the perfect deodorant to pair with your little black dress.
