30 Bananas a Day!

I know theres so many vegan all-natural options. Before I started this lifestyle I used Dove prescription strength. I know I know so bad!! I tend to sweat a lot and speed walking is my commute (bad combo lol!) I've pulled back and just used regular dove deodorant for a year, but sweating is still an issue. Its visible and embarrassing. Now, I'm wondering if a natural deodorant can help with this. Maybe I'm sweating because of a dependence on chemical deodorant? Anyone have experience with switching to a natural brand? Does it help with persperation in particular? Thats the only concern, I have better than average BO :-P

when your a high carb + low fat + raw + vegan - you never need deodorant because your not sweating out toxic crap - bacteria which feed on the toxic oily substances that leach out though you skin smell.

Thanks guys! I'll try a natural deodorant for awhile and eventually go natural. Good idea to use wipes as needed. 

The "crystal sticks" FTW.  As long as you don't drop it and dry it off after each use, it'll last for many months/years.

Don't the crystal deodorants work because they contain alum? Is it really any different from commercial anti-perspirants with aluminium?

You can make your own by mixing baking soda, warm coconut oil, arrowroot powder/corn starch and a few drops of essential oil. Works pretty well.

I'm no expert on all the brands, Nathan, but mine claims to be different from those that contain the harmful versions:



Maybe one of our scientists can weigh in on any potential differences between this form of alum and the problematic aluminum

Now you've got me weirded out.  I'm open to learning more!


Yeah, I don't think there's a good answer out there, I avoid them just in case.

coconut oil every day. On occasions, If I am going to a special event, I'll use a name brand deodorant

i don't use deodorant, i do sometimes wipe lemon juice under my arm pits, but don't know if it makes a difference.

I dont use anything either. Can't believe how much perfume I used to wear back in the days, now I'm always choking on other ppls perfume as I pass em on my bike

Hey I know right!?! Other peoples' perfumes are so offensive! They smell disgusting and unnatural! 

Tooootaly! So unattractive to me now

I haven't worn deodorant in the last six months! the only time I pong is when I've made a curry or something but it's not BO, keep your diet low fat and drink plenty of water..
