    Could you recommend for me a good deodorant or cologne?

    Which doesn't contain estrogenic chemicals? Does such a thing even exist? The websites offering information on estrogen-mimicking compounds all say that "fragrances" are things to look out for/avoid. So does this mean there's no safe alternative....?

    I make my own deodorant from coconut oil, shea butter, baking soda and cornstarch. Works great, hubby loves it and it works even in the summer heat.
    Just google homemade deodorant. There are tons of recipes.
    Needing some accountability, so here's my stats:
    34yrs old, 5'5"
    CW: 163lbs (07/2014)
    GW: 135lbs or less
    Eating mainly paleo, but including a bit of white rice (don't call the Paleo Police!)

    I use/make the same. I'm still stumped on how to create a better antiperspirant though -- but I actually think it's more the coconut melting than sweating.

    I use coconut oil and baking soda, I think it works really well, at least no one has complained!

    Homemade here too, coconut oil, baking soda, cornstarch and a few drops tea tree oil. Works better than anything commercial that I've tried

    i use the coconut oil mixture too...except it "rubs off" on black tank tops. So for these days (summer/fall/spring), i use witch hazel with essential oils (lavender, rosemary) and it works even better (no melting coco oil!)

    my husband and I use straight coconut oil for deodorant. It works *great*. Seriously, best stuff ever.

    if you want a scent, you can mix some essential oils into it.

    Coconut oil and baking soda. With coconut oil you never need to overpay for shitty cosmetics again, really.

    Just another perspective. I have not been using deoderant for at least 6 months now. Yes I am married and wife would be very quick to mercilessly tell me I stink if in fact the were the case. The reality is that since going Paleo I finally worked up the courage to try no deodrant and honestly I am glad I did. My body odor is much less since Paleo lifestyle. I hate the smell of colognes and deoderants. Also I do not use any shampoo and my hair looks much healthier and fuller and there is no "fallout" either. I am a male 53 years old 6 ft 155 lbs.
