Natural Product Review: Primal Pit Paste’s Thyme & Lemongrass Deodorant Stick


| 2/23/2015 4:16:00 PM


I love using natural beauty products. I live for lotions, lip balms, moisturizers and facial cleansers enriched with organic, nourishing ingredients. But if I’m being totally honest, natural deodorants have always eluded me. As someone who sweats a lot (TMI? Sorry.) I’ve had a difficult time committing to natural deodorants on a regular basis. (Read “Why You Should Use Natural Deodorant.”) Thankfully, my job has allowed me to try and discover a number of natural deodorants that I really like. A few have even become staples for me on low-impact days. (Read “Natural Deodorant Options” for a list of the deodorant products I am currently digging.) The natural deodorant that I’ve been enjoying most recently is Primal Pit Paste’s Thyme & Lemongrass Natural Deodorant Stick.

Primal Pit Paste’s Thyme & Lemongrass Deodorant Stick Ingredients

Before I dig into this natural deodorant stick, here is a full list of its ingredients:

Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Arrowroot Powder, Organic Beeswax, Aluminum Free Baking Soda, Essential Oils

That’s it folks! This is as natural as it comes—all of the ingredients listed on this product are easy to pronounce and zero of them have been flagged on the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database, so use the product to your heart’s content.



My Thoughts

Primal Pit Paste offers an array of natural, handcrafted deodorant products, from sticks and creams to extra-strength blends. But I chose to review this particular paste stick for one main reason: It smells amazing! It’s infused with thyme and lemongrass essential oils, two natural antiseptics that are great-smelling and wonderfully healing oils for deodorants. I love citrus-smelling anything, so this “pit paste” had already won me over with its scent alone.
