Below is my favorite deodorant recipe. It is AMAZING!!! My husband can ride his bike 70 miles in the blazing summer and still no BO! I also love that it's a great alternative for my girls who are just reaching the age of needing deodorant. It's easy to use and you can add essential oils for a "pretty smell", if you want.
6-8 Tbsp Coconut oil (solid state)
1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup arrowroot powder or cornstarch (arrowroot is preferred)
It's easy to make and worth trying. We are always amazed!! He'll come up to me and say smell this you aren't going to believe it. I'm thinking, NO WAY you're a sweaty mess (LOL!) but there is nothing, no BO. I love it. I used the salt crystals before and it was decent but wouldn't hold to up anything out of the ordinary and wasn't enough for him.
Let me know what you think.
That's so neat about your son. Everyone I have given the recipe too loves it and can't believe how well it works.
We also use this, but I can't say it works for everything. A hot, sweaty day of farm work is all it takes, and I don't think I'm particularly sweaty or odiferous in general, LOL! It may have something to do with repeatedly sweating, then drying, then sweating again that makes it worse.
I've never had it stain. So I don't think that will be an issue. I'm not usually wearing silk though :) But I think I would and still feel fine. It soaks in quickly and I don't notice it.
I put it all in the food processor, that makes it creamy and nice.
LOL Shekinah!! I'm so glad it worked for you. I really am evangelical about it. I tried so many expensive "natural" ones and this one is so easy, cheap and works better than any of the others I tried. I like that my girls are starting out with it too.
Interesting about the yeast infection! Glad it went away so quickly! I think I'll tell a friend who is dealing with a raging one at the moment.
PS about your dh, tea tree can be tough for sensitive skin too. Maybe you can make a mild version that will work for him.
