    hmm

    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

      Spray-on scented rock crystal?

      I think the stuff I bought at WF was around $4-5. "Expensive" compared to my Equate MM which lasts for months and months...

        I found this last month on Crunchy Betty's blog, and since I was hating every natural deodorant I used since going off "Secret" and "Sure", I decided it was worth the effort. I tell you...I DO stink big time when I don't use deodorant but this recipe totally works - even better than store bought. I'm flat out amazed.

        "Not a Secret Homemade Deodorant"

        1-1/2 Tbsp grated beeswax or beeswax beads
        4 Tbsp coconut oil
        1 Tbsp shea butter
        4 tsp clay (bentonite or other)
        20-25 drops essential oil (tea tree, rosemary, lavender, lemon, bergamot, or a mixture of any listed)
        Empty, clean, sterilized deodorant container

        Melt the beeswax and coconut oil on very low heat, whisking often. Once melted, add in the shea butter and whisk a few times, then remove from the heat and continue melting. After that’s melted and you have a liquid, sprinkle in the clay and continue to whisk well until everything is combined. Drop in the essential oil, whisking still. Place the pan into a cool water bath, and leave for 5 minutes or until it just begins to set up. Spoon the mixture into your deodorant container and place it in the freezer for 20-30 minutes (or until completely hard). If, for some reason, it starts to get too soft on a hot day, just put it back in the freezer for a while.

        *************************
        Just to give you my tweaks, I doubled the basic recipe, I used French Rose Clay, and I used an essential oil combo of lavender, sweet orange, lemongrass, tea tree and rosemary. You may not have that many EOs laying around your house (I'm a soapmaker so I have tons) PLUS I added about 1/4 cup of baking soda and 4 heaping tablespoons of cornstarch (you can sub arrowroot powder) because it seemed too melty/oily at first.

        Honestly, this stuff lasts me 2 full days per application. To get rid of the slightly greasy underarm feeling I dust with some powder after applying it. I'm so happy with this recipe I'm thinking of making it to sell :-)

          I use the rock crystal and it works just fine for me. If it's not enough to control odor, you may have an imbalance you need to address in your diet.
          I post my general diet frequently. It's high-fat, high-protein paleo with starchy carb cycles tossed in here and there, with a little cheat every two weeks - usually free pizza or ice cream in small quantities. And, as of the past month, kerrygold swiss cheese...and fewer avocados. What sort of imbalance would make me stinky?

          I'll try this, if coconut oil and the salt rock don't work, without the beeswax if possible.

            I use Nigella oil. It seems to ward off bacteria, as it also helps with rashes and razor burn. Probably not the most effective deodorant, but even the rock stuff bothers me after a few days.

              You could just use a normal deodorant stick without too much poisons.

                Normal deodorant stains my clothing no matter how "invisible" or "no residue" they are. Rock crystal is much cleaner to use and less damaging on my clothing.

                  I use this

                  Ice Guard Natural Crystal Deodorant Twist Up 120g: Amazon.co.uk: Health & Beauty

                  and it works well. Been using it 3+ years and no problems - either with skin reactions or smell! And some days can be pretty strenuous in sunshine - and it still works. I apply it to wet pits and rub on quite a bit. One stick lasts about a year...

                    Natural deodorant

                    Benadryl works best for my rashes i have extremely sensitive as all deodorants even Dove made me itch and actually gave me body instead of preventing it. The problem is the way deodorants work is they clog your pores. I tried something new and I love it and you have to wash and dry the area. Use this deodorant no longer. If you have used others before that didn't result in rash that's the one to use. However, until the rash clears up do not use anything. After washing and drying try some hydrocortison over the counter cream, or just some regular corn starch is best to keep the area clean and dry. Once the rash has cleared then you can use a deodorant you know is ok for you
