    For those going soap/deodorant free...

    Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.

    I don't need any convincing to tell me that the guy sweating away next to me at the gym smells bad, let me tell you.

    It took a few months (I was fairly sweaty when I first went Primal, it being summer and all, so I could tell!), but now I use a crystal deodorant stone and it works very well to cut odor. If I'm active, I use it twice a day (morning & evening), and I don't get beyond a slightly sweet sweaty smell. Nothing faint-worthy.

    I just use water, in the shower. Lotion would also work, and does when I'm not so lazy.

    I use soap, actually, but not to shave.

    A checkout clerk at Whole Foods tried to convince me to use coconut oil as a deodorant, so I tried it. OMG, my pits smelled like a big soft rotten coconut at the end of the day. I smell better not using anything at all. Sometimes I use Tom's of Maine, but I prefer to go without- still, we're so used to not smelling people so that when we do, we REALLY do.
