I introduced deodorant to my son when he showed interest. He was about your daughters age. He didn't stink, but I figured might as well get him used to it while he wanted to do it! You don't need to say anything about odor, but maybe let her know big girls wear it! Then if she asks maybe explain a little more.

My sons only four and although he gets sweaty through the day i dont expect to be buying deoderant anytime soon, however when the time does come where personal hygiene and self preservation are brought to attention I'd consider a natural based deoderant, thier skin is way too young for them to be applying chemicals that will be absorber- I'm not a hippy or anything lol just the idea of sprays being inhaled or metals being applied makes me queasy considering it will be done almost daily from then on- besides I'm sure in time with demand being made for pre pubesant deoderants marketeering will step in and perhaps more product choice will be available :)
