All I ever use anymore is baking soda. Rub it on after a shower. I have a recipe somewhere for one that you can mix up, but the baking soda works so well, I haven't bothered with anything else. I won't use anti persperant because I don't want the toxins that my body is trying to rid itself of. What is interesting, is that when I'm outside a lot in the country, after a while I don't need anything for deoderizing. But let me go to town and MAN I can tell the difference.

We use zinc oxide paste. It works really well & contains no dangerous chemicals.

Here's a simple recipe I found but haven't tried yet. I wonder if you exchanged the petroleum jelly for beeswax if it would work as a solid? Let us know if you find one you like.

Cream Deodorant
1 part petroleum jelly
1 part cornstarch
1 part baking soda
Few drops favorite perfume

Store in a small jar

I think if you used beeswax you would need to add some oil or it would be too hard to apply.

I wouldn't use petroleum jelly because it clogs the pores.
