Sandalwood Deodorant: Your New Signature Scent. 5 Reviewed

Sandalwood Deodorant

As someone who is passionate about personal care products, I am always on the lookout for the latest and greatest items to add to my daily routine.

Recently, I discovered sandalwood products and simply loved the scent. Finding a deodorant that was safe and effective was more of an effort but I solved it and my favorites are below. Mostly (but not entirely), they are aimed towards men but some will suit the girls as well.

What is Sandalwood Deodorant?

Sandalwood deodorant uses sandalwood as the main ingredient to add that delightful scent but other scents are often added to create something subtle and unique. A quality brand will use natural ingredients like coconut oil, beeswax, and shea butter to keep your underarms soft and moisturized.

It will be free of harmful chemicals like aluminum, parabens, and synthetic fragrances, which can cause skin irritation and other health issues..

How to Use Sandalwood Deodorant

Using sandalwood deodorant is simple. Just apply a small amount to your underarms after showering or bathing.

It is important to note that if you are using a natural, chemical free product such as those below, it may take some time for your body to adjust to it.

Some people experience a detox period where their body sweats more than usual, but this is temporary and will go away as your body adjusts.

So, let's go exploring and find one you'll love!

MAGSOL Natural Magnesium & Sandalwood Deodorant for Men & Women

Why We Love It

This magnesium and sandalwood aluminum free deodorant is the real deal, and has become the go-to for millions who have given up on big-name brands.

But what sets MAGSOL apart from the rest? For starters, it's baking soda-free. Unlike many natural deodorants that use baking soda, which can cause skin irritation and redness for some, MAGSOL is pH balanced and gentle on even the most sensitive skin.

The secret to its effectiveness is its use of food-grade magnesium oxide, which limits moisture buildup under the armpit and provides all-day odor protection.

With only 4 natural ingredients (sweet almond oil, beeswax, magnesium oxide, and natural oils), MAGSOL is made with sensitivity and effectiveness in mind - safe for pregnant women, sweaty men, and stinky teenagers alike.

Plus, with its large size, MAGSOL will last you a whopping 9 months! No fillers, no wasted space - just a natural deodorant that really works.
