Still sweat, but no BO, just a nice lime smell. I prefer this because it allows my lymphatic system to drain, otherwise my lymph gets backed up and it leads to sinus congestion and blocked pores.

I apply a mixture of sandalwood powder, Vaseline, and a little cold water to my entire body daily.

It keeps the odor away and retains moisture for soft & smooth skin.

It took me a while to experimentally find the magic ratio which works for my body.

I wouldn't try the lemon or lime since I shave, and the thought of getting acidic citrus juice in shaving nicks just makes me wince.

I tried one of those salt crystal deodorants once, and the salt didn't agree with the shaving nicks either. Ouchhh.

Try the mix I mentioned earlier after shaving and showering.

It does not irritate you skin at all and the softness lasts for days on end. It also has a nice fragrant appeal. The talc I use has a masculine fragrance, but there are similar sandalwood talc's for women.

Default does lemon juice work as a deodorant? Very well!

Ever since I watched an episode of Doctor Oz a month ago on which a guest recommended using lemon juice instead of a chemical laden deodorant I have been happy with the results! It does work very well! Simply smear on the juice of a lemon slice to cover the armpit area and let it dry. I do not worry about eating a "healthy" diet and find it not necessary far as odor goes but some believe in it.

Oh wow, I'll have to try this! I got a really bad burning sensation/rash from the baking soda+coconut oil mix.. Since then, I've been using rosemary water, which is refreshing and works great, but must be applied more than once a day.
