Vegan Palo Santo & Frankincense
I really enjoyed this for about 2 weeks and then, unfortunately, the underarm rash showed up. I gave my skin a few days and then tried the deodorant again, but the rash came back and was pretty itchy. Cannot continue to use it. That said, I would still recommend this as a natural alternative. Fragrance is light, odor is controlled (and this is key because, frankly, some brands left me smelling like a caveman), and the ingredients are so clean.
We're so sorry to hear our Vegan/Sensitive Palo Santo wasn't a fit. We are happy to send you a stick of our Vegan Unscented deodorant to see if the essential oils were causing you irritation or issue you a full refund. Sending you a direct message so we can connect~

I alternate between this one and the bergamot one for close to a year. love the smoky scent, easy to use
Is it weird to say that I'm obsessed with a deodorant? Because I can't get enough of Humble's Palo Santo & Frankincense deodorant. Humble was the first brand of natural deodorant I ever tried, based on its super clean, vegan formula. I am a big fan of warm/woodsy/witchy scents, and basically want to smell like a human ritual, so I had high hopes for the scent. I also had lofty expectations for the dryness factor, because I am historically a very sweaty person—or was when I used aluminum deodorants, even the "clinical" kind. This deodorant did not disappoint me in either domain. The Palo Santo and the tonka bean scents are more prominent than the frankincense, but I don't mind, since frankincense in higher concentrations smells a bit too funereal, even for my tastes. The deodorant goes on smoothly and evenly, and it only takes two swipes for me to apply my desired amount of product. Rather than rub in the excess, I find that sort of clamping my arms to my sides and moving them back and forth once or twice helps any excess product to "melt" against my skin. It also helps to apply this after a hot shower, when the skin is still warm. Once it's on, the scent lingers on my skin for several hours. If I'm having a long day—say, meeting with a friend after a 9-5 workday—then I do reapply, because after about eight or nine hours, I can no longer smell that scent I so adore. When the fragrance fades, however, it leaves my skin smelling pleasantly bland, with only the faintest hint of my own sweat. It's almost as if the deodorant neutralizes my body odor. I don't think it does, but that's how it seems. I would highly recommend this deodorant to anyone who is looking for a natural vegan formula, made of very few ingredients; something that won't irritate your skin (I've gotten something akin to chemical burns from deodorants that used arrowroot powder and the like). As far as fragrances go, I also love the Moroccan Rose and find it feminine but extremely authentic (it actually smells like a fresh rose!) and the Mountain Lavender. I look forward to trying the Bergamot & Ginger soon!
The Palo Santo smells clean and slightly sweet. The deo is effective even for workouts. Love this product; next time will buy plastic-free dispenser-genius!
