Six. This is the number of natural deodorants I tried prior to finding Lume. This number also represents the number of times I gave up and pulled the Secret back out of the cabinet.
These trials usually ended up in frustration because the natural deodorants I tried did not battle my wicked body odor as well or for as long. I also felt like some of the brands never seemed to dry. Eww. Some of the natural deodorants also irritated my skin. Nobody wants to sign up for wet, burning pits.

Why did I keep putting myself through the same song and dance? Because…aluminum, for one. That’s right-most of us have grown up coating our bodies (and clogging our sensitive pit pores) with chemicals like aluminum. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to put aluminum anywhere on my body.
Lume is a Multi-tasker
I happened to catch wind of Lume on my Facebook feed about a year ago. They had me at “yoga pants”. The ad I read revealed that Lume was not just for pit stink but was also for privates! GASP!!!!
Most women know exactly what I am talking about when I say that yoga pants typically CANNOT be worn without another wash. This is due to natural feminine odors that build up over time.
Man-made fabrics tends to retain odor. It’s true and it’s not your fault! Lume tackles odor before it starts by blocking the reaction that causes BO in the first place.
This means that Lume is not a one-trick pony. Lume use is not just for underarms and private parts either. It can be used to help with odor issues on all parts of the body that get stinky including (but not restricted to):
- private parts
- tummy folds
- under breasts
- belly buttons
Lume is also not just for the ladies. Pit and private-stink is universal between men and women. Fortunately, Lume can help.
I absolutely love when a company formulates a product to address a social taboo like private part odor. Everyone knows it exists but they are afraid to talk about it out loud! Lume dives right in to the taboos and rolls around, exclaiming “SWEATY BALL ODOR? LUMĒ HAS GOT YOU COVERED!”
If that’s not enough, Lume has a ton of things going for it:
- Clinically proven 72-hour odor control
- Doctor-developed-based on science
- Aluminum free, baking soda free, and paraben free
- Naturally derived and skin-safe
- Safe for any external use
My favorite Lume products are the Lavendar Sage stick for my underarms and the Unscented tube for everything else. Lume now comes in a range of scents to meet everyone’s needs :
- Lavendar Sage
- Juniper Berry
- Silver Spruce
- Jasmine Rose
PRO TIP: Use a small amount and apply with your fingertips. If you over-apply, you could end up with a gooey mess. Nobody wants that.
Lume actually gives a ton of great tips on when and how to use the product.

No deodorant is a one-size-fits-all solution, although Lume certainly comes the closest for me to being my armpit soulmate. It is important to find the product that works best for you and your body chemistry. Also keep in mind that natural is usually better!
