I’ve received my order – thanks so much!
This is the only deodorant I’ve ever found that’s effective but doesn’t irritate my underarms. I’m so happy you send overseas now that we’ve moved to England!
I was a loyal purchaser in Aus; I ordered direct from you initially, but once I found you were stocked in my local organic store and on Nourished Life, I would bundle Fresca into my other purchases. I brought a bulk load with me when we moved in December and have just run out – so was really impressed with how quickly it got to me!
Thanks again. You have a super product and I hope it continues to go from strength to strength.
My adult son, with awful body odor, was transformed when I insisted he put some on as we drove to the airport. Immediately there was no odor and that was some achievement. So much so, that I sent him about 4 different smelling bottles in Victoria, to be sure he used it! Because eww, men who imagine body odor is sexy for everyone are simply wrong! Well done Fresca – Happy returning customer
Happy Friday, Penny

Its pretty simple really – it is the only natural deodorant I have tried that actually works! The scents all smell amazing. The deodorant doesn’t give me a rash like many do. It doesn’t stop me from sweating (which is a good thing!) but it keeps me smelling fresh (and after the initial couple of weeks detox period I really stopped sweating as much as I used to from my underarms!).
I really like your product, it is a great brand and I love the ingredients list. Thank you for making such a great product!
Thank you so much for the little bag that came with my deodorants today! It was a real surprise and I will definitely use it. And thanks for your amazing deodorant, which I have been using for many years now.
All the best to you,
Regards, Hilke Ppiros

Hey Sonia! just wanted to say thanks for the Natural Deodorant post recently! Based on that I ordered some Fresca ones (the wood spice… mmmm divine!). I wore it today,… usually on my work days, I end up feeling stinky by the end of the day lol but NOT TODAY! So fresh, haha. Could not believe how well it worked 🙂 And love the essential oils included. thanks!
Just wanted to congratulate you on Fresca deodorants – such an incredible product. I was made aware of the brand in one of the interviews in Tim Ferriss’ Tools for Titans & wholeheartedly agree: it’s the only natural deodorant that works!
Thanks again ?
I only use ethical products so to find this is made in Australia and is cruelty and palm oil free is wonderful.
I do gardening jobs and even in summer on 45deg days there is no body odour. I put it on in the morning and it lasts all day with a lovely fresh citrus smell.
I have never had a reaction to it, unlike normal commercial roll on deodorants.
I buy 6 rolls at a time and they last both of us about 6-7 months, great value for a wonderful product!
Also wanted to give feed back that the process was excellent. Fast delivery time, very informative about where and how the items were travelling and accurate about when they had arrived!
Great service and so pleased to support a local, natural therapy business.
I was recently given your wooden spice deodorant as part of my birthday gift.
As an aromatherapist I have never used any deodorants containing aluminium and have used the Sandalwood natural deodorant from Mt Romance in WA for many years.
I am so pleasantly surprised that your deodorant has the least number of chemical additives and I only need one application a day. It is non -sticky , dries quickly and does not leave stain marks on clothing. I live in a very hot and humid climate in Central Queensland and usually require several applications per day.
Congratulations on “the magic formula” Somebody has actually got it right.
I have recently bought a large number of your deodorants as they really are that good. I look forward to trying more of your products.
Just want to say “thank you” for your hard work and production of such an amazing product that actually does do what it claims to do.
I developed breast cancer nine years ago, and in those past nine years, I’ve been searching for a chemical free deodorant that works.
I’ve tried numerous so called natural deodorants, spent many $$$, and wasted lots of products.
As I work in the health care industry, and work with many people, I was not prepared to “smell” for the sake of using a chemical free deodorant, no matter how important it was to me, I just could not risk smelling at work.
I recently stumbled across Fresca whilst browsing on Nourishedlife website – so thought I’d have one more shot using a chemical free deodorant.
And how glad I am too – Fresca works, smells gorgeous, love the roller ball bottle – it’s so cute – and it’s ethical which is also a major consideration for me when buying toiletries & cosmetics.
I’m using two at the moment, the Rose which is lovely, and the Jaisara which is gorgeous.
So thank you, and I’ll be certainly spreading the word about Fresca !
Kind regards, Ali.

I have been meaning to contact you for weeks now to thank you for sending me my order in such good time – it was much appreciated. I have been using Fresca deodorant for some time now but have bought it at retail outlets when I’ve been able to. I then decided to purchase online instead and I’m glad I did. Your prompt dispatch of my order was great and the packing of the order in the little bags were just lovely and I like the serum that you sent a sample of also. Thank you so much! And I love the fragrance that I ordered – it’s very exotic and mysterious!
My husband and I use the deodorants and are really happy with them – I went for them because they were natural and also because they are cruelty free and made locally here in WA. They tick all the boxes!! Keep up the good work, your products are terrific!
Thanks again for making a great product.
Thank you for the amazing service & fantastic product. Your deodorant is the best on the market by far. I love the Unscented version which I can use with other scented products & the Valley Rose scent which is beautiful. Thanks for the bonus pen with this order too.
(Note: Citrus Fresh is pregnancy safe.)
About a month ago, by chance, I stumbled across your website and after reading all the amazing reviews, I ordered your Jaisara and Citrus Fresh. Neither of these actually smell like anything on my armpits….and that is what I LOVE …..MY ARMPITS SMELL LIKE NOTHING ALL DAY….NOTHING …no body odour, no fragrance….nothing …I LOVE that my armpits smell like NOTHING…just clean and fresh. I am in love with this product! And an sooooo happy I have found a natural deodorant that works for my girls to use once puberty hits.
Thank you so much for this amazing product … I am now ordering some for my husband too.
I have just bought a facial serum hydraskin elixir for a friend who is very much into natural products, and I know she will love it! Wearing this product myself, I have had people comment on how nice I smell, and it’s because of the essential oils in the elixir! Thanks, Elda, for great products that don’t damage us from the inside out!
I have been a convert ever since!
Amazing product by an amazing woman!
I saw you guys on Today Tonight tonight, little did I know I was supporting a home business when I placed my order yesterday. How amazing!
Well done and I’m so excited to try your product as I am changing my deodorant from aluminum based purchased from Coles as I’ve been getting blocked sweat glands under my arms, so I’m hoping this helps with that.
Best of luck with your ventures.
I was glad I come across your product. I was also trying to buy online for my deodorant but it was out of stock so I decided to look for alternative. Hence, I found your website and read all the positive reviews. Also, I was thinking since it’s all 100% natural it won’t darken my armpit which is now my problem of using so many different kind of deodorants.
Fresca deodorant is really amazing it’s my first time in my entire life to use a deodorant that at the end of the day I don’t smell anything even if during the day I am sweating in my armpit and it feels dry, too. Unlike other deodorants which feels sticky and itchy in the armpit. I’m loving it and would recommend for my children and family.
Thanks for including a sample of elixir I think I like it, too. I’ll be ordering soon.
I met you at the Ashy Bines event in Sydney on the weekend and loved the smell of the Valley Rose so I bought one. Well I am totally blown away with how well it works! I have been to the gym twice since and it keeps me odour free! I’m getting another one for my friend to get her onto this amazing product. You said it would work. It sure does!
Thank you so much. I am now using all chemical free products on my body. Deodorant was the last thing that I had been searching for. You ladies rock!
I am really excited to try the other scents that you have at the moment I am using wild lavender and it has nearly finished :(.
Thanks so much again for making this wonderful product that has cured my issue for now and I hope it stays cured! I hope to hear from you real soon.
Fresca was the second brand I tried and it is incredible! Smells amazing and actually works! Thank you for making such a fantastic product!

Just a quick follow up on the order that recently arrived. I decided to order the Wooden Spice for the first time on this order and when it arrived I decided to read the information included.
Apparently it is said to calm the nervous system. Now let me tell you Elda, I am an old man and if my nervous system becomes any calmer, I won’t be able to hear my poor bones creaking. Furthermore to that, it would appear that your lovely product is also an aphrodisiac. Wow, this could be a concern of course coz it doesn’t take much for us oldies to kick the bucket, you know..
I shall monitor my progress closely and if I do die and go to heaven, I shall contact you and advise you of my demise as soon as I have moved in and discovered what system of email service they use up there. (Probably Dodo)
Now I don’t want you to panic here Elda because there is a good side to all of this. At least I would smell pretty flash in the coffin. Eh?
I am a little concerned as to whether or not your product is flammable. Imagine the resulting explosion. It would probably take out the side wall of the crematorium. This idea doesn’t play heavily on my mind to any great degree coz I have read where your products contain no alcohol, so could be I will be alright there.
As I am a fearless bastard, I am reasonably sure that I may not die in the near future from over exertion and look forward to my coming years without those damn itchy armpits that I suffered with before I discovered your excellent products. Fresca rocks.
With kindest regards, Warren Wilson.
I have been wearing it and testing it out and am thrilled to have no smell whatsoever. Thanku, thanku for sending to me and I’m pleased to say I will be a customer for a very long time!
Good work on an amazing product. Kind Regards, Naomi Ibrahim

My teenage boys are both athletes and need a product that can keep up with them. They stay fresh and safe all day using your deodorants. My husband is a convert as well. Our family favourite is the Ocean scent.
Thank you for such a safe, effective product. Catherine,
Warmest regards, Judy
Obviously I was a bit of a sceptic, but have been so totally blown away by the fact that even on these really hot (and in Qld humid) days we’ve been having of late working without air conditioning, I still smell fresh at days end. Sharing with all my friends, who no doubt are going to be receiving some Fresca products as gifts in the near future.
Once again, thank you for creating an ethical and effective product, I couldn’t be happier!
Kind Regards, Tracey

I would like to say thank you for your email and I have received your amazing deodorant and your kind sample of your oil (just beautiful) so kind:)
I love the deo and I get no smell nor sweat and that is after a gym session and out and about all day, so happy I tried it and I will continue to support you by buying and wearing your amazing deodorants!! Be well, be happy, warmth, Farrah
I just wanted to thank you for developing and providing your product. First of all the package I received in the mail was so lovely, I could feel the care, gentleness and love in that package! Your lovely handwritten note and the care with the deodorants in sweet individual bags & the free sample of the elixir, it was a lovely parcel. Then the same care on the second reorder, so lovely.
Secondly, I have been looking for a natural deodorant for such a long time, tried so many, spent so much money and nothing has worked, none having staying power, to the point I got so disheartened that nothing worked reluctantly (out of being stinky!) resorting back to chemical deodorants.
Then I read a review in nature and healthy magazine and they said “Fresca actually works” and I read a testimonial from a lady in country town next to me that said the same thing, so I thought why not have another try. The best news is IT ACTUALLY WORKS as good as chemical deodorants in terms of body odour but allows you the process of sweating as to not block the sweat glands, which I dread to think of how many years my family and I have been doing this! Thanks to you it means our future can be different!
So a huge tremendous thank you for developing and providing this product Elda,
Warm regards, Sarah Mckenzie
Ps if it helps in anyway, please use this as a testimonial to let others know how fantastic your deodorants work, please do.
PPs I wish you every success, I know small businesses can be challenging at times, so I wish you success and financial reward.
2012 Thank you reviews
I have never had a body odour problem in my life, and was suddenly left self-conscious and embarrassed when I was out and about. However I didn’t want to just return to using regular aluminium deodorant… so persevered… I was sure there had to be a better solution. And after receiving your products last week, I can honestly say that they ARE the solution for sure! I was hoping for at least an improvement on the others I’d tried… but with your product I simply don’t smell AT ALL and stay dry all day long!
So I just really wanted to send this note to say thankyou for creating such an effective product that I feel completely confident and safe using everyday. And just picking up on what some other people said in the feedback area… I also wanted to comment that receiving the product was rather like getting a lovely present… It was so beautifully packaged up… and with lovely samples and information… well done!
I will be re-ordering this for sure… and plan to give as gifts to my friends and family as well 🙂
It has been excellent on all levels. I like the scent and find it to be good particularly for men. I have not had any irritation or reaction to the product, which I have had with several deodorants in the past. And most impressively for a natural deodorant, it lasts easily for a full day!
I look forward to ordering more in the future and would encourage you to increase opportunities for selling your product in the States as opportunities arise. Thank you again, – Ben
As an Australian living in Arabian Desert of the many (natural deodorants) we tried that I could buy locally, none worked well and some to the point where I would have to shower in the afternoon. The temperature here can soar to 50 degrees plus in summer and humidity can reach 90% so for a good 9 months of the year so you sweat a lot.
Fresca Natural Deodorant is the only one that works all day on both myself and husband and even during the night, if time doesn’t allow for a shower, we are still OK!
I highly recommend this product so much so I get it shipped to me here in Dubai.
Just recently, I discovered some natural CREAM deodorants that work ok. BUT, you have to stir them before applying and then use your fingers to apply, it is really annoying.
Finally, I can across your website, and ordered three deo’s (rose ocean and unscented). I have been using the rose deo for about 2 weeks now in the infernal Washington, D.C heatwave (the highest temperatures recorded in history), and I DO NOT SMELL BAD!! Yaay!!!!! I simply don’t smell! Temperatures have been between 100-106 with lots of humidity!! Yuck! But at least I don’t have to smell that foul underarm smell all day!
I want to sincerely congratulate you on your product. Thank you so much for your product, and I look forward to hearing back from you! Gabby.
I have been using your deodorant since I bought it at the UWA market and I am really impressed with the effective protection this natural product provides. It has been a wonderful ‘find’ for me and I have been spreading the news to all of my family and friends, particularly those who are interested in finding natural products that actually work!
Thank you for the sample of the new skin elixir. I look forward to trying this also, especially as my skin tends to be very dry. Kind regards, Margaret.
Cassandra has her own blog page about natural products and found Fresca Natural late one night on a google search. So impressed is she with the performance of the deodorant she has written this blog about her experience with natural deodorant products. https://www.chooselifeliveitdoit.com/2012/04/no-its-not-me-i-dont-smell.html (sorry, page no longer available)
(English Translation: Dear Elda, the parcel finally arrived, the deodorants have a beautiful natural fragrance, I tried the Ocean and I can say that it works perfectly, I have tried truck-loads of aluminium free deodorants but the results have been very poor, I am therefore delighted with your products! Kind regards and congratulations on your products. Sara)
I may have met you at one of the market days at the Hillarys Boat Harbour. Before we left for Houston, I went down to the Saturday Markets looking for Fresca Natural. I am happy to know that we can order on line. I have used many different natural deodorants and yours is the best. My daughters love it as well and I am going to pass on one to my niece in Miami. I have bought them all for the family and I hope to keep ordering from you. Thanks so much, Kind regards, Deborah.
I have only recently started using the second bottle, which means that the first lasted well. The fragrance is unobtrusive and meets the demands of a varied work environment- between an air conditioned office, non air conditioned factory and open site. The warm humidity in Brisbane is occasionally high and even then the deodorant keeps unpleasant odours at bay. There is nothing non-invasive I can do about my sweat levels, (antiperspirants have blocked sweat glands in the past- leading to uncomfortable swellings) but it was a relief to find that your product effectively deals with odour.
In short- I’m very happy with Fresca deodorants and grateful that such a product is available. There’s peace of mind when using an effective and naturally supportive product.
I came across your product from an internet search, was impressed with the testimonials I had read and, after using both the Wooden Spice and Ocean products they are the best I have used. Even my wife has tried them and intends to use them in the future. Definitely the best deodorants we have tried and unable to buy anything comparable directly from a retail outlet on the east coast….
My parcel arrived late last week, thank you. I loved the presentation of your deodorants and I’m already happy with the results. I’m glad I found you when I did a Google search. Kind regards, Annie. (Jaisara, Citrus Fresh, Valley Rose, Unscented)

You have recently sent me a couple of deodorants that I have ordered and have asked me for some feedback regarding your product.
For a long time I have been searching for a natural, aluminium free, deodorant that works! I have spent a lot of money and time searching for a good product at health food stores, etc., but none of these have been effective for me. I found that unless I used an “unnatural” product, it wasn’t effective so I was using a commercial deodorant, but it’s full of harsh chemicals, and contains ingredients that I can’t even pronounce.
Finally, I stumbled on your product at the Perth Upmarket, and thought “Oh well, I’ll give this one a go”…and BINGO, it works!! I can literally use it in the morning and have a full and active day looking after my little baby, etc., and not have an offensive odour by the end of the day. Also, I even wore a Polyester dress one day and didn’t smell badly.
I’ve now got my mum onto it and we’ll be purchasing Fresca Natural from now on.

You have made a wonderful product. I have been using another natural commercial deodorant which is chemical free but I found I would sweat a lot and it would not stop the odour. Fresca on the other hand has a great fragrance and does exactly what it claims to do! I’ll be recommending it to everyone I know. My husband uses the unisex Ocean and found it very effective, even after cycling from Perth to Melville (about 17km).
Well done on making such a great product!
Kind regards, Lisa
Following my request to Rachael to introduce me to a chemical free underarm deodorant due to some health issues that I am currently facing, Rachael suggested that I try your product.
I have now been using it for several weeks and find not only the fragrance to be very pleasant but that it also works to my complete satisfaction.
I would have no hesitation in recommending your fine product to anyone seeking a chemical free alternative to the regular products offered in the market place.
I have been meaning to send you my testimonial for quite a while. I purchased my first bottle of deodorant at Kalamunda Markets just before Christmas 2010, and was not only impressed with the beautiful perfume of the deodorant which always calms me, loved how it didn’t make any marks on my clothes, loved that it is aluminium free, and was impressed with how well it worked, even in 37 degree heat whilst packing up my house to move to Namibia. When I ran out in Namibia, I then organised for 4 bottles to be sent to a colleague to bring over to me in Namibia. Happiness!! I look forward to using Fresca for a long time in the future.
Anyway, thanks, and maybe I’ll bump into you when my next bottles run out and I need to get some more!
My husband had been using the Fresca Wooden Spice and Citrus Fresh and it has definitely made him a calmer person. It smells wonderful and I would highly recommend this product as a natural alternative to commercial products. Many thanks.
-works well and no irritation

Oh yeah, I only apply it once a day, the bottle lasts ages.
