ewww i sweat ALOT too... on my face chest and pits of course. i love tom's of maine, the mint or the chamomile works great... but in college, when i worked someplace i had to dress up, i used those natural rock salt crystals-- you just wet it and rub it anywhere. WORKED AWESOME!! on your feet, under your breasts, behind your knees in summer, and underarms of course. but tom's smells better, so maybe a combo of both? i'll have to try that next summer lol

live love laugh! kiss slowly and forgive quickly.

yes you can easily mix the essential oils with baking soda! This is how I make my carpet deoderizer as well! It works wonderful! I am going to try the vinegar and baking soda too!

Yes, I've tried Toms of Maine, but have to use the long-lasting care scents (not all of them are, so look at the labels). I also have to apply 2x a day if I'm working out or walking anywhere at all. I am curious about trying the baking soda & vinegar, and I like the idea of mixing in some essential oils. Can you mix essential oils with baking soda without ruining the powder? I've only mixed oils with other liquids in the past. Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone!

I'm pretty happy with Tom's of Maine products. I think they are pretty widely available.

I'm a big sweater too. I don't think anything really works for that. If it's going to be really hot, I will just line the underarms with protectors so it doesn't go through. But I will try the vinegar and baking soda.

For me I try to go to the source and make sure I eat clean. I have gone back to vegetarianism in the last two months and my odor once again is different and I like it better. Eating clean is my best deodorant.

Just a dork trying to get healthier. I can also be found at

In this same vein, I not only have some B.O. issues, but I also sweat a TON! I know natural deodorants are just that - deodorants, but I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for the sweating too?

I actually found a cure in case anyone else wants to know....I'll rub vinegar on after my showers at nights and let it air dry....then in the morning, i'll rub baking soda (thanks for that one!!!!) instead of deodorant, and I swear I'm cured! I was so happy I started to tear up...thanks for the answers!! :)

If you want to add a pretty fragrance you can always add a drop or two of an essential oil you like to the baking soda. Don't use it full strength! I like citrus and tea tree oil goes well with it to prevent infections. Go easy on the tto if you use it. It's stinky.

Added essential oils must be mixed in well to prevent irritation!

That's what I did. I put some baking soda in a recycled makeup jar, and used a powder-puff to pat some on.

Some people swear by plain baking soda, others mix it with cornstarch if they have sensitive skin. I've used the baking soda and for smell, it works great, but I found that I got infected hair follicles much more often. I am really prone to that sort of thing though, and I seem to be the only person reporting it on a lot of the forums so it may be worth a try.

Ok, so it's a bit embarassing here, but I have an EXTREME underarm B.O. issue....I've tried multiple deodorants and thought about trying a "natural" deodorant, but didn't know where to start...any suggestions??
