Re: Made my own deoderant & IT WORKS GREAT!

I'm super intersted too - but one question. How do you 'detox' your pits? Since I currently use the commercial variety, my pits are waxy for the lack of a better term. Does that process help with that? Thanks ladies!

Re: Made my own deoderant & IT WORKS GREAT!

I had that aweful waxy feel too. I can still smell it in some of my clothes. I did the detox over the weekend so I could clean my underarms throughout the day as they got smelly. I used california baby tea tree oil body/hair wash for babies and the tea tree oil helped to keep it all under control while giving a pleasant smell to the area.

Now I have my DH, DS1, mother in law, brother in law and aunt using it and they love it I have several other family members wanting to try it as well. Dh and I are sweaters too so I was really scared to try it but I just got so TIRED of the funky smell of the commercial deo. You know that smell you get when your body adjusts to what you are using and then you have to switch? A good reason to switch. Also cancer runs heavy in my immediate family so I don't need any extra contributors chemical wise.

I really suggest trying it but cut back on the baking soda at first. So many people have a rash reaction to it and you can always add more later. Better to start off slow than to have to much. I have a little less than the recipe calls for and do fine with it. I also melt it between my fingers and apply it like lotion.
