    I hope this is the right forum to post this. But anyways I just recently decided to stop using conventional deodorant (Secret Gel) to something else. I tried kiss my face Peaceful Patchouli stick kind because I love their body wash but that did not seem to help. So today rather than buying the roll on I bought Tom's of Main roll on Lavender. So far stink wise i am okay. I smell like Lavender. It feels different than the Secret thing I used to use. Is this normal? Is there something else I could use if it seems like its not working? I hope this is not weird to ask.

    i dont wear deoderant anymore. if i smell, i use baking soda, it works really well. its normal for natural deoderants to feel different because they allow you to sweat which is how your body get rid of many toxins. i used toms of maine for a while and it worked well for me, its pretty good stuff. baking soda rules though ;)

    none eat right & u dont need any..no meat very lil junk, the stink comes from what u put in your body, not what u put on it

    but if u need to, try umm i think its just called the deoderant stone.. klooks like quartz almost, just wet n rub...&..it lasts a week through showers & all..
    although on some ppl with really heavey sensativity it can cause , a sorta yeast infection of the pits..yea i dunno why..but if u get a rash u can stop & it goes awaywqauickly...& thats just with rare sensativities ive heard of that..

    I use Jason products and Dr. Burt's Bees Oil of Sage Deodorant. I find they smell nice and work wonders. Unfortunately, they wear off after one day usually.

    natural deodornts are a good means to heal your stinct. i mean if naturally it is available, then people should not go for the artificial ones.

    I've not had good luck with the stone myself, but my sister swears by it.

    Myself, I like Tom's of Maine... and when I can afford it, Avalon Organics :)
    love,
    mom

    Definitely ditch the old stuff. The active ingredient is most likely aluminum. Now ask yourself, do you really want to be rubbing that on your body every day for the rest of your life? Whatever natural works for you is what to use. And stay away from Ban deodorants whatever you do. Tests say there is a cancer link to them.

    After I get out of the shower
    I apply some baking soda to my pits
    and it eats away the bacteria
    and everything else that comes out of me.
    It's a pretty harmless substance,
    and it does the job well for a day or two.

    I use the stone. Its a mineral salt crystal actually.

    I've had the same one for over 7 years. I've worn it down to about 1/3 its original size. Works great.

    Cost me less than a dollar per year to use everyday.

    Should be able to find them in health food stores, etc.

    Crystal's the best. Just moisten it a bit and rub it on. I used to get dry skin from it but I'm used to it now.

    I have been using a salt stone for years now (I actually am using the same stone that I purchased two years ago.) It works well. However, if you wear sythetic materials like polyester...it isn't as effective. ALSO APPLY IT WHILE YOUR ARMPITS ARE STILL MOIST FROM YOUR BATH!!! Another great deodorant is baking soda dissolved in water, apply it with a spray bottle.
