I don’t know about you, but despite my best efforts, my armpits stink to high heaven by the end of the day. It doesn’t matter which deodorant I use: over the last few years, I've learned who my friends really are.
Because of this, my wife took matters into her own hands by making a batch of simple deodorant that keeps my crazy odor at bay.
Okay...prepare to write this complex mixture down. Ready?
1) Arm and Hammer Baking Soda
2) Trader Joes coconut oil
Got it? Good.
When mixed, you get is a gritty paste that you coat your stinky parts with. There's a secondary plus to the concoction, which is that there is no slimy, shirt-staining residue.
While I thought Gina was a genius for making this for me, she insisted that it's just an old and well-known recipe. You can check out a variation on this idea at Wellnessmama.com—they use Shea butter, essential oils and Arrowroot. Too darned fancy for my armpits.

We get it. You don’t have to go to the office anymore. That’s no excuse for letting your grooming go positively feral.
