I've heard that fragrances could potentially be harmful to babies (I think just in the first trimester) and have been avoiding using perfumes. This sounds gross but I've only been using deoderant when I've gone out too. Does anyone know of any "natural" deoderants that work well?

Lush do some deoderants which are just bars of powder which you rub on your underarms. They work up to a point though but did make the arm pits in my clothes yellow (gross)!

I have one, called "Tom's of Maine, Natural Care" it's a calendula deodorant without aluminium and with natural fragrances. And it works. I use it all the time, especially since the suspected links between deodorants and breast cancer.
