I tend to sweat a lot in warm environments, I stopped using commercial anti-perspirants some two years ago I think. I just use virgin coconut oil with baking soda nowadays and am not changing back to any of the sticks or sprays, the ones I've tried are crap compared to this. Both of the ingredients are good for keeping bacteria at bay, either of the two can be used by themselves but I like combining them since it makes the application of the soda way easier.

No artificial perfumes or weird stuff for me, I absorb enough chemicals transdermally at work.

i kinda like it here on the innernen

i love how coconut oil covers all sorts of odors, just knocks it right out.
has to be reapplied but it sure kills any smell.

Yea, I use about equal parts, usually a little less soda which I learned through trial and error.

Note, you do not want lumps of soda under your arms. It will act as an abrasive and thus give you painful small sores, which it also irritates when it dissolves into them.

That's cool, we'll give it a try. The aluminum can't be good for you, and yes, most everything does get absorbed by the skin.
It's been linked to Alzheimer's and breast cancer.
Coconut oil, tea tree oil and baking soda make a great antibacterial antimicrobial toothpaste.

Some people sweat more than others, and it was far worse for me when I lived in the tropics.

That's why wash with an anti bacterial soap, it's insane the difference.. You can buy all natural ones..

I put a new anti perspirant on yesterday, and woke up this morning not smelling, but not as fresh as the days I didn't put anything on. So I think it's the deodorants and sprays that create the breeding ground for bacteria to grow, by clogging and blocking everything..

It depends on how you look at it, it could actually be good for you. Geroge Carlin had a good point about hygiene; just take care of the four key areas daily, and to make it simple you can use the same brush on them all. chuckle.gif

I found the anti-perspirants I used before did exactly this, they worked for a while but afterwards the smell was way worse than without anything. I suppose they sell better that way, people using them daily get used to smelling wretched after a while and then apply lots of anti-perspirant trying to avoid that.

That's something you don't want to look for at the second hand store. vic.gif

Bizarre..

Not that I am a big under arm smeller, but living in such a hot climate it's impossible to not get woofy under there and with the feet a little bit too, cause you sweat non stop.. No amount of washing or soap could stop the underarm smell I was smelling.

I still plan on wearing an anti perspirant, just a small amount..

Depends on lot of factors. Mode of transportation, climate, etc.

Use arm and hammer it's the one that works the best.
