"Several years ago I began to think my skin was sensitive to everything. I couldn’t use shea butter because it made my skin red and bumpy. I’d tried baking soda under my arms once before and it scraped the dickens out of me. Once I used them both at the same time and ended up looking like I’d just given a noogie to a cactus.
I used nothing on my right armpit (the Control Group) and dabbed the baking soda/coconut oil mixture on my left armpit (the Stinky Twin) and gave it the day. The pits got hit with CrossFit (assonance), an exceedingly warm afternoon, a roadside car breakdown, and an encounter with a child below the age of two (kids make me nervous).
Oh. My. Gosh. While I had a frustratingly normal level of “stank” in the Control Pit, the Baking Soda pit was absolutely odorless. Even slightly pleasant and coconutty. I believe the natural anti-bacterial properties of coconut oil combined with the odor- fighting baking soda created the perfect, simple, cheap, easy, odor-killing combo.
Win! I don’t even have to buy anything extra – I already use coconut oil for cooking and skin care and baking soda for hair care. No more shipping charges. No more lonely corner at the gym. No more competing with the pooch for cuddles.”
Hmm - well that’s easy to try! Anyone have tested this?
