It’s time to ditch the toxic antiperspirants, and switch to a safer, smarter deodorant from The Apothecary. Deodorant is a personal care item you use every day, so it pays to be aware of what goes into it. Ordinary brands load their sprays and roll-ons with all sorts of nasties, including aluminium, parabens and talc. The Apothecary’s natural deodorant formula is made with beeswax, therapeutic clay, and antibacterial plant oils. These prevent smelly armpits without blocking up your sweat glands, or irritating your delicate areas. Dab on a little Orange & Neroli Cream Deodorant for all-day freshness, minus the toxins.

Our strict ingredient policy means that you can always shop according to your values. Every item on FtN is checked to be better for the environment, socially responsible, good for you and free from toxic ingredients.
  • Natural cream deodorant formula
  • Light, bright citrus fragrance
  • Part of the “Delicious Body” range from The Apothecary
  • No toxins, aluminium or parabens
  • No talc, no synthetic perfumes
  • Won’t block pores or irritate skin
  • An eco-friendly choice
  • Coconut oil and beeswax make up the creamy base of this natural deodorant. Both are antibacterial, moisturising and protective.
  • Cornstarch and bentonite clay add silkiness to the texture, and absorbmoisture and toxins.

The citrus oils in this formula also play an important role:

  • Sweet orange oil is antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. It has a pleasant, light citrus fragrance.
  • Neroli oil kills bacteria and microbes, keeping your skin clean and fresh. It also has antioxidant properties, and assists with skin cell repair.

Did You Know? Sweating is an essential function that cleans the pores and helps the body flush out toxins. Sweat itself is actually odourless, and only starts to smell bad when it mixes with your skin’s bacteria. Antiperspirants are designed to prevent sweating, by blocking up your sweat ducts; and that’s not healthy at all. Meanwhile, natural deodorants allow you to sweat normally, but they neutralise the bacteria that causes bad odours.


  • Apply a pea-sized amount to underarms to stay fresh all day.

I'm a really sweaty person (have been since I was a baby, it's called hyperhydrosis). Mainly my feet, hands and underarms and because of this I struggle with bad BO. I've been using natural deodorants for a few years now and it's absolutely life-changing. I use a pea size amount and literally don't smell at all, all day long. I've tried Apothecary and Natural Yogi (though the latter seems to only have small jars now) and they both do the trick. I've taken a star away because as others have mentioned, if the deodorant warms up then the oil separates and you can accidentally spill it out the jar BUT I just take an ice cream stick and remix the oil until it's a paste again. Some people are too fussy, it is a natural product after all :)

This smells wonderful, but I don't enjoy the the granular texture unfortunately. If it was a bit creamier, I would consider buying it again.
11/10/2022, By Adri
I tried other natural deodorants before. but this one has a beautiful scent and actually works in summer. love this one
22/08/2021, By azima
Smells great, good texture. Removes odour
07/05/2021, By TaraStar
I love it! It actually really works and feels like I'm nourishing my beloved armpits at the same time. They deserve some love after trying to cover up their smell for all these years. They're just doing what they're meant to be doing... naturally. I love that I can reuse the jar and it's locally and lovingly made. The smell is subtle. And it matters to me that they use organic essential oils as my body will be absorbing them. Best deodorant I've used so far, I'll buy this again!
17/03/2021, By Gill
A great natural product. No more skin irritation and it lasts the entire day.
20/08/2020, By Cindy
I can't rave enough about this! What an incredible product! Doesn't leave any weird residue and LOVE the faint smell of neroli!
11/08/2020, By Praline
I was very disappointed with this product. Firstly because the orange & neroli oils were hardly perceivable through smell. Also the product as a whole had a strange smell. I am not sure if the one I received was old. I will go back to using The Victorian Garden deodorants.
23/07/2020, By Sara
Love the smell

Exceptional quality and lovely scent
26/03/2020, By Leanda
The smell is subtle and delicious; and the texture is creamy, enough said!
03/03/2020, By Melissa
I liked this but am still on the hunt for my ultimate non toxic anti perspirant.
26/02/2020, By Stells
This works well enough in cool weather. Might not work for everyone.
07/01/2020, By Helper
Sweet smell
27/11/2019, By Lize
It's 40 degrees plus in summer and the product doesn't stay after a few hours. I constantly found myself smell-checking. But I am definitely keeping it in the fridge for when it gets to the cooler months as I loved the texture
20/11/2019, By Nessa
Love this product. Works so well and I love the subtle scent. It's awesome!
05/11/2019, By Anje
Awesome product!
20/10/2019, By Amie
Been using it as night time deo. not recommend for day time but sounds amazing
17/10/2019, By yusuf
09/10/2019, By Taryn
I bought this for my fiance but ended up using it too. :) The scent is lovely and gender-neutral. Keeps the body smelling clean and fresh all day. Will definitely be ordering this again.
02/10/2019, By Gerda
Ek kan glad nie meer gewone deodorant gebruik nie, selfs nie eers die vir sensitiewe vel nie. Dit laat my jeuk, uitslaan en laat my kliere opswel. Hierdie is die eerste deodorant wat regtig goed werk vir my. Dit is nie 'n 24 - 48 uur deodorant nie, maar ek vind dat dit my deur 'n normale werksdag hou en dit het 'n heerlike geur.
23/09/2019, By Liné
This products works well. I find that the bottle also lasts longer than normal deodorants. I love the smell. The only issue I had is that my skin sometimes breaks out when I apply the product. Other than that, this is a great deodorant.
03/09/2019, By Lucy
My husband loves this product. It has a really great unisex scent and works brilliantly
15/08/2019, By Beatrice
I love love love this deodorant!
This is the best and safest deodorant I've ever tried.
It leaves my armpit dry all day long.
13/08/2019, By Caroline
This stuff smells amazing and so far lasts all day. Best natural deo I've tried! Interested to see how it will hold up in the summer heat.
16/07/2019, By shanee
We (my fami;ie) have tried a LOT of deodornts in the drive to go natural and this is the hands down winner.
05/06/2019, By Samantha
Love this product, would however like it was a bit easier to use.
The smell is terrific and I love the fact it is natural.
31/05/2019, By Elvy
I would give a "D" for price - this product is very pricey. I would give a "C" regarding the smell - it's winter and I have to apply twice during business hours to stay fresh and not smelly. I would however give an "A" for it not blocking my sweat glands and definetely a "A" for the green impact on the environment
28/05/2019, By Bavilicious
I did not like this product at all. It went on just awfully and didn't work for me.
22/05/2019, By Roz
So happy to have found this product, it actually works.
It smells good, does the job. There is some grainy residue which I'm not loving, but it's not too bad!
20/04/2019, By Tessa
I have tried many natural deodrants, and this one works the best. I'm very impressed so far.
15/04/2019, By jenny
I have tried numerous other Deodorants and this one lasts me the whole day and I am active all day. I also love the fact that one applies it with fingers, which keeps me on track with my Lymph Glands.
09/04/2019, By H
The texture of this would melt if it was in the sun or in my car which made it so that I couldn't use it. Further, if I exercised it didn't prevent me from smelling bad :(
The smell of the product was lovely, but it just didn't work :(
05/04/2019, By Skye
This is my favorite deo. worked like a charm, even through the stinky hot summer, Hiking and running.
It feels so soft I want to spend the whole day rubbing it on my arm pits. ;-D
01/04/2019, By LUBA
Love this product, smells lovely and last a whole day for me,best natural deodorant I've ever tried!
18/01/2019, By hayley
Just love it! Yes you have to apply it yourself .
11/01/2019, By Skye
Love this creamy earthy deodorant. Smells and feels beautiful and keeps me smelling fresh all day, even in hot humid places. I still sweat, lots, but I don’t stink.
10/01/2019, By Larisa
Very small but this is the only option that works for me. Doesn’t burn and the smell is beautiful. Sometimes have to reapply if it’s very hot, but that’s ok.
07/01/2019, By Maria
I was sceptical but this product has impressed me. Great smell and does the job!
01/01/2019, By Lynn
Super impressed with this deodorant. Smells wonderful and the ingredients really work at keeping body odour at bay.
12/12/2018, By Lucy
Love Love Love this smell - and so does my husband :)
09/12/2018, By Larissa
I'm not saying this deodorant wouldn't work (from all the good reviews), but for me personally it didn't. It has a lovely smell when you open the container, but after application, that wasn't the smell that stayed. It also would have been easier to apply if it was a roll-on.
04/12/2018, By Landé
This is the best smelling deodorant I've ever used. Very effective - just very pricey as I will have to get another one before the month is through! The only reason for not giving it all star rating!
01/11/2018, By Lala
THE BEST natural deodorant! I have been using this deodorant for over a year. I LOVE the smell and find it effective. Even on a very hot day if I need another application, it freshens me up and removes all odour! Well done on this great product - my deodorant for life! No burning or sensitivity and no stained clothing :)
31/10/2018, By Jessica
This one works really well. This is my second time purchasing it. I have not tried the other scents yet, but I really like the Orange and Neroli smell.
30/10/2018, By Freak of Nature
Best natural deodorant I have tried, lasts for the whole day on most days. On hectic days I might reapply late afternoon. The smell was quite strong initially, but I am used to it now.
26/10/2018, By Nadia
This is my favorite scent from this brand of deodorants so far.
20/09/2018, By Sumaya
The product is easy to apply,has an earthy smell.I found that it did its job with twice a day applications. Not going back to regular artificial deodorants,will try other variants in the range and different brands.
19/09/2018, By Veganshmegan
I was totally amazed at how well this works! I've tried many clean deodorants and none did the job. What a find!
18/09/2018, By Amy
This deodorant smells great, leaves ones underarms feeling soft and comes in a glass container which is easily reusable or recyclable.
18/09/2018, By Bobs
I was sceptical at first but I'm completely sold on it now...lasts all day and doesn't let me down in or after a super sweaty gym session!
17/09/2018, By Thandi
Love this natural deodorant. Doesn't let me sweat or smell!
10/09/2018, By Karien
This product has a lovely smell! I am still getting used to the texture of the product, but I assume it just takes some getting used to in comparison to "regular" deodorant. Perhaps a note on application/how to use would be nice....
30/08/2018, By Stef
Love this natural deodorant. Slightly crumbly at times, but I think that mostly happens when I apply too much. Works so well though - I won't go back to commercial chemical deodorants ever.
31/07/2018, By Jenean
Application is a little different from what I am used to but the product seems to work well.
29/07/2018, By Bronwyn
This natural deodorant was the 3rd I'd tried and by far is the best one. Smells great, texture is interesting, love the packaging and simplicity of this product.
In winter it goes quite solid so needs to be worked a bit before application; in summer I use a triple volume during running/ yoga
06/05/2018, By Cassandra
Really wonderful. Was expecting it not to work as well as "normal" deo but it work BETTER. Buy this and try recreate it after - it's a lot of fun.
17/04/2018, By Megs
Lovely smell, works well too. You just have to work out how much is the right amount to use.
11/04/2018, By Dear Earth People
It works and smells great and no plastic. Wish there was a better way of application though (?)
09/03/2018, By natural diva
I'm used to 48 hour protection, however in 16 hours or less I start smelling. I love Faithful products but I can't rely on this one for protection, I need to keep on sniffing myself. I will continue to use the product hopefully it will improve. May I judged it too soon, #watercrisisinthewesterncape
30/01/2018, By SunStar
Bought this because I love Neroli but am impressed. Works well, even on the hottest days of Gauteng's recent heatwave I felt fresh & dry all day.
26/01/2018, By Melanie
I could not believe this actually worked. Put it on the morning, worked the entire day with no discomfort, went to run the afternoon and it worked perfectly. Previously tried something else but it quickly worn off and made me sweaty. The only downside is the bits of crumbliness the product is not entire smooth.
12/01/2018, By Janine
I tried this during winter and it worked pretty well. I suffer from excessive sweating so no deo or anti-pers will work for me but as far as natural deo's go this is the best. Much nicer than the tea tree and cedarwood one.
31/12/2017, By Jaco
Great product.
31/12/2017, By Tali
Smells great. Does what it says. No harm done.
29/12/2017, By Lala
I never write reviews but this product warrants one! Seriously impressed! I have been searching for a natural deodorant and have tried about 7-8 different brands to no avail. I decided to try this brand at last and WOW! I am addicted! I will be using this deodorant for life! Not only is it free from the nasties but it actually works better than any other natural deodorant I’ve ever tried and I would say better than some Aluminium and anti perspiration competitors. I also LOVE the neroli and orange fragrance. My husband tried it and hasx started using it to and he no longer has dry and red underarms as with conventional deodorants!!!! Well done on this product!
26/12/2017, By Nadia
Very happy with this deodorant. No more dry itchy armpits.
08/12/2017, By Sharifa
I badly wanted this product to work but alas my armpits are not in agreement. I've tried a different scent from the same range and neither one worked My search continues.
07/12/2017, By Lucy
I have only been using this for about a week, but I love it. It has antiperspirant properties which I love from a natural product, but also smells amazing and does not stain clothing!!
14/11/2017, By Bazzerk
So far, so good. Manages to keep up with the warmer weather these days as well. Just wish the bottle was bigger. For extra "protection", I team this with a detoxing soap for my arm pits.
07/11/2017, By Lydia
This is the first time I've used this product and I must so although I was skeptical about using a creme as a deodorant it has proven very effective. I have already told everyone about it and suggested they try it.
05/09/2017, By Jenny
Strange to use, but does a better job than any roll-on, stick or spray out there.
28/08/2017, By Rosa
I've used this throughout winter, and I would say it holds up reasonably well. It lasts about 12 hours for me, and keeps me comfortably dry. The scent is subtle and I love neroli so it works for me. It takes a while to figure out how much one needs to apply, but in the end not much is needed per application. I've only used just under a quarter of the jar in three months of daily use. It's best to apply this straight after a shower or bath, so that one's skin is warm enough to help the product to meltingly slide on and absorb. I haven't had any issues with staining on clothing against my underarms so far. I will have to see though how this product fares in the warmer months (but it worked on the few unusually hot days we've had this winter).
26/06/2017, By Sarah
Great Product! Goes on easily. The fragrance is not overpowering, so you can wear perfume with it and they wont clash. The cream feels a bit gritty, but goes on smoothly and doesnt irritate the skin.
19/06/2017, By BigBoss
Can't find anything better than this.
13/05/2017, By Tanya
Amazing! I've tried a few organic/natural deo options but this one actually works! The first time I put it on, it felt a tad oily but that feeling soon goes away and then you don't notice it on consecutive days of use. Smells beautiful! Love the neroli essence coming through. It got to 29 degrees in Durban and I only put it on the morning, and it lasted all day, no weird smells and it feels great knowing that you're putting on good ingredients.
