This may be a personal subject but this is the BEST deodorant. Anybody who has tried it can attest to that. You will NEVER smell again! It is amazing stuff! You will still sweat, which you should do to cleanse your body of toxins. Sweat allows your body to cool down but you won't smell with this deodorant. Shirts stay clean much longer. Ken loves it so much he even takes it when he travels.
Most store bought deodorant is full of chemicals and you are putting it on an area that is close to lymph nodes and breast tissue. This deodorant is a bit greasy, so put it on, rub in well and wait a few minutes to put a shirt on.
If you develop a rash from it, don't use the baking soda in it or use half the amount. It gets hard in cold weather and is like liquid in hot weather. When it is hard, just scrape some off with your fingernails and it will melt as soon as you put it on your skin.
Here's the recipe:
Melt in a small saucepan ~
6 Tablespoons of coconut oil (I don't use extra virgin coconut oil, because it smells like coconut. Use regular coconut oil. It is anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. Bacteria is what causes the smell under your arms. Coconut oil kills the bacteria naturally.)
Stir in 1/4 cup of baking soda and 1/4 cup of cornstarch.
Mix together well.
As it cools off, it hardens.
I just store it in a small glass bowl on my bathroom counter.
If you don't want your tops to get greasy, just use a towel to wipe your underarms a little to get off any excess oil before putting on your top.
