    Come on dude. Scents are scents. There is no such thing as "female scents" and "male scents".

    That is great but does anyone know if this diy deodorant stain your clothes? Any particular oils or essentials oils that are known to stain that we should stay away from? I might need to change oils due to allergies. I just do not want to stain my clothes or My bf white tshirts mandatory for his job.

    All this is good to know, because commercial deodorants and antiperspirants have aluminum in them, which the american cancer society warns women AFTER they’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer to not use them. For an organization supposedly about preventing cancer, why aren’t they warning women BEFORE they get cancer about the aluminum increasing the risk for breast cancer? When one learns things like this, then one must question the true intent of this organization.

  20. Nancy Rodriguez on October 5, 2020 at 5:57 am

    anyone knows how to create a scent that comes close to the "Aveda Men Pure-Formance Grooming Clay" scent?

  29. Heva Mirlande Mersier on October 5, 2020 at 6:13 am

    Dr. Axe, what is the shelf life for this deodorant. I noticed you didn’t add any preservative.

  30. sherm dog on October 5, 2020 at 6:16 am

    Peppermint can do weird things to your hormones as well.

  31. Akwaaba B on October 5, 2020 at 6:18 am

    I had a reaction to baking soda. can I make the deodorant without it?

  32. robert olson on October 5, 2020 at 6:18 am

    Essential oils Natural? They were natural until corporations concentrated them 100 times of what nature gave us.

  33. Lea K on October 5, 2020 at 6:18 am

    Maybe its just me but I think Patchouli oil is one of the worst smells I’ve ever come across, and actually makes me sick.

  34. Orthodox in Oakland ca Lej on October 5, 2020 at 6:19 am

    Thank you.

  35. Avion Orr on October 5, 2020 at 6:20 am

    What oil brand can I use? Thanks

  36. Laura Harris on October 5, 2020 at 6:20 am

    I’ve tried every “natural deodorant “ out there and NONE work more than a few hours. I’ve tried the recipe he mentioned making at home also. Drinking a lot of water didn’t help with the pit odor either. I think some people just have a stronger body odor that nothing can fix.

  37. Randy Fricke on October 5, 2020 at 6:21 am

    I shower exclusively with Kirk’s Castile Aloe Vera soap. I get those little spray bottles from Walmart. I put 20 drops of whatever essential oil I like then top it up with distilled water. Shake vigorously before each use and spritz. The water evaporates and leaves the oil. It’s all you need.

    Deodorants and colognes are nasty.

  38. dev bachu on October 5, 2020 at 6:25 am

    Thanks it works

  39. tvoymasik on October 5, 2020 at 6:25 am

    Eating clean regular gym and 3 times a week sauna eliminates odor completely, no deodorant or anything on my armpits I’m a living proof. But if I stopped all that the stink comes back in 1 week

  40. Aashrya Sharma on October 5, 2020 at 6:27 am

    Thankyou doctor Axe. Love from India.

  41. BUTTERFLY CRYSTALS & GEMS on October 5, 2020 at 6:27 am
