We’ve all applied deodorant daily for years without giving it a second thought, but if the thought of contained parabens and aluminum salts is now starting to worry you, we have found a 100% natural alternative.

Head to Central Market New Souk and visit Wadi Az Zafran; an Iranian store on the ground floor, where you will discover sacks full of spices, herbs, natural goods, and an amazing choice of nuts.

What you have come for is Natural Alum Stone, one of the most natural deodorant which will cost you just 10 AED for a 200g piece. To use it, simply rub over wet skin or dampen with water to apply to dry skin. Alum stones are free from chemicals, perfumes, colours, and alcohol – and one piece can last several months, so they are very affordable too.

The Iranian seller at the store is so welcoming we could have spent the whole afternoon tasting and smelling his stock and listening to his shrewd advice.

Our last tip would be to add in your basket a couple of Madagascar vanilla pods. You would never believe they only cost 1 AED per gram…
