Re: Natural deodorant that actually works, anyone?

I use the crystal stick without any problems, but I get the best result when I put it on directly out of the shower - while my underarms are still wet. Not only that, but keep applying it until your skin starts to dry - about 20 strokes I guess. Before I started doing that, I wasn't having the great results.

Something I do in the shower once a week is scrub with baking soda, and then do a rinse with diluted ACV (1 part ACV:7 parts water) to kill any bacteria - which is what causes the stink!

Another thing I'd watch out for is using lavender essential oils - apparently they can mimic estrogen... but I don't know enough about that to elaborate any further. Just something to research.
