I have been trying for about a month... month & a half to find an alternative to my antiperspirant. I happen to be blessed with many sweat glands... and can't go without anything, otherwise I am stinking up the joint within two hours.
I have tried the crystal, the crystal spray, Jason's Tea Tree, Tom's of Maine, and a couple others. The crystal ones did not work at all for me. Jason's and Tom's worked for a limited amount of time.
What worked wonders for me was when I applied baking soda directly to my underarms... unfortunately, after 4 days of this, my under arms broke out so badly that I could hardly move my arms.
Now, I have to wear something to not stink. I am a massage therapist, and clients' noses become more sensitive as they relax... so I would like something that hardly smells... but most importantly, I can't stink.
Tonight I mixed up a batch of rubbing alcohol and EOs (TTO, Lavendar, Chamomile, Sweet Orange and a couple drops of Rose Absolute). I figured that should help with killing some of the bacteria, and also have a very mild, nice smell to it.
Has anyone else tried this? I am going to try it out tomorrow.
Has anyone else had this problem???? Any other possible suggestions? Or am I doomed to spend my days applying and reapplying Tom's deod., or throw in the towel all together and go back to my Secret!
