Switching to Natural Deodorant

Not too long ago I did a review of No More Dirty Looks [a book about the usage of chemicals in the beauty industry]. This book was eye-opening and has made me question the products I buy/use. I have slowly been transitioning to natural deodorant [aluminum-free options]. To be honest, I am not having the best of luck so far. Most recently I have been using the LAVANILA The Healthy Deodorant. I love the way this deodorant smells and it applies nicely. I haven't experienced any issues with white streaks on my clothes. I have a miniature size of the pure vanilla scent and a full size of the vanilla lavender scent. 

Their pit fall: their lasting power. After a couple hours, I start to [mildly] stink. These deodorants are not antiperspirants so they don't prevent you from sweating [the way Secret antiperspirants do]. Aluminum is associated with [breast] cancer, Alzheimer's, and kidney disease [although there is not concrete scientific evidence that there is a direct correlation]. Bottom line--I'm attempting to slowly transition to natural deodorant and LAVANILA is great but isn't cutting it for me. If you aren't a big sweater, these may work well for you. I do love the scents. 

Do you have any recommendations for a good natural deodorant?
