Antiperspirant May Boost Variety Of 'Bugs' Living On Your Armpits

homemade deodorant stickScott Romine from Cabot, Arkansas tried out a new brand of deodorant, Right Guard, for a week. Luckily, I was able to treat the stains with a combination of white vinegar, baking soda, peroxide and hot water. Yes, it should work to put the mixture in an old deodorant container if you prefer applying it that way, because it does firm up nicely, even without refrigerating. I personally didn't have the detox, but it may have been because I was already using a natural deodorant.

I recently started using Aztec clay for a face mask so that was how we had everything on hand easily. No deodorant after shaving: Try to give that underarm skin a little break after you shave and don't slather on a bunch of product. Before commercially made toothpastes were available, people would use baking soda and salt to brush their teeth.

The Need-to-Know: You're much better off popping and flavoring your own corn at home (try one of these 30 delicious and healthy variations ). You didn't hear it from us, but if you pack your homemade deodorant without baking soda snack inside a shoebox, no one will suspect anything (except that you scored a new pair of kicks before coming to the theater).

I don't know how antibacterial olive oil is, but it does have an scent that I personally wouldn't want to smell like. But last time I tried using baking soda alone for a deodorant (admittedly very long ago) it worked great, but I eventually developed a bad case of underarm fungus. I switched to a deodorant about a year ago and have been loving it. However, my husband wasn't able to use the same deodorant because it gave him a nasty rash under his arms.

Ever since I started making (and using) coconut oil based deodorant, my transpiration issues went away and my skin is soft and healthy. Furthermore, bentonite clay has a very fine velvet-like texture, is odorless and non-staining, which are all important qualities for a deodorant.
