Here's a few that I've done:
Deodorant: Mix equal parts coconut oil, shea butter, cornstarch and baking soda. It may irritate your skin if it's really sensitive. There are recipes for this online, google "homemade deodorant"
Lotions: Olive oil is actually excellent for really dry skin. I put it on my hands every night and wear gloves to bed, it even controls my hand eczema. Coconut oil is also excellent, same application method :)
Shampoo: I have hair down to the middle of my back. I used baking soda and apple cider vinegar - mix about a tablespoon of baking soda to a cup or so of warm water, scrub it into your scalp thoroughly, let sit for a minute, rinse thoroughly, then do the same with the vinegar. This doesn't work well in hard water (which is why I've gone back to regular shampoo :( ) I've heard that if you just give a good scalp massage under warm water it works really well, but again with the I have hard water and need shampoo to get the crud out of my hair. You can google "no-poo" or "curly girl method" to get more info.
As for feminine products (guys, you might want to look away now...) I use cloth pads and I love them. They're a big initial outlay, but they pay for themselves in a few months. I bought mine from a seller called Randumosity on Etsy.
