This is NOT a post where I talk about the armpit rash I had for a week or so from the baking soda in my natural deodorant, which irritated my skin. You don't need to know about me trying to ignore the itch or applying aloe to my underarms. Nope, that kind of thing is best kept private. This is simply a post where I note that something like that may have happened to me and to other friends too, and a post where we now turn to you: do you have a favorite brand of natural deodorant that doesn't use baking soda?
At the moment, I use the Meow Meow Tweet deodorant pictured above. It doesn't contain baking soda, so it has proven to be gentle on my skin. As a deodorant, it works fairly well, but it's expensive, and I'm interested in what else is out there. Maybe you have a brand you love, or - even better - a slam dunk recipe for making your own. I've been wanting to get into the world of DIY deodorant, but since my store-bought deodorant works okay at best, I'm wary of having to try out multiple concoctions before settling on a recipe that actually works.
So, if you also use deodorant sans baking soda, I want to hear: what brand? What recipe? What's worked for you?
