Default Deodorant - What Do You Use?

I didn't even know people are turning to healthier alternatives till I saw this:
http://www.calbenpuresoap.com/le_crystal.htm

So what are all the natural folks using? Crystals? Are they like giant salt crystals?

So, you still sweat, but the salt kills the bacteria? Is that the general idea?



Does it work? What do you use?

The "crystals" are aluminum compounds. Stay away from them.

They might come from nature, but they are still aluminum compounds. Salt and baking soda sounds like it would have some effectiveness, especially for odor.

what about a giant salt crystal? keeping that around and using that as a roll on?

maybe throwing some baking soda or talc powder for the perspiration absorption?

When sweat evaporates it leaves a layer of salt. Baking soda will help out with the odor. I use something called lavlin. An israeli deoderant made from zinc oxide and calendula oil. It is pricey, but you apply it once very 5 days.

I have topically used MMS2 in water mixed with an equal amount of DMSO. It's a sure fire odor causing germ killer.

Its a good thing to sweat. I was so clogged nothing would make me sweat till i used the farinfared sauna. Now when i take my walks im soaked. Its a great way to get out toxins and give the liver a rest. The baking soda is very nice as it really keep ya dry and not smelly

I use a mixture of baking soda/colloidal silver, then add a few drops of essential oil, usually pepermint or wintergreen.

It works great.

I make a batch by mixing baking soda (which is dry) with colloidal silver(which is wet). I don't know how you could use baking soda by itself.

Baking soda is very alkaline, which means if you use too much it will burn a little.

I saved an empty "old spice" container, and just keep refilling it with the above mixture, along with a few drops of pepermint oil. Its all mixed together then used just like using a normal dispenser.
