Times I've used store-bought deo: 0
Times I've felt stinky: 2-3*
Times I felt sweaty in the pits: 2
It is winter, so as I said before, the real test will most certainly be a Louisiana summer with 3 digit temps every day. Still, as long as I don't get too funky, I will rock this homemade deo. It's just awesome.
The times I felt stinky, I know that no one else could smell me. Those were a couple of evenings that, at the end of the day, a big sniff of my own armpit yielded some stink. It was however, way less stinky than the funk I got with the store-bought naturals I've tried.
What would I change?
My only annoyance after a month is that the scent I made was a little to herbal for me to love day after day. I think I will make the next batch with lavender and rose and/or vanilla, or maybe a little orange. Otherwise, I am in love with this mixture and will be sticking with it!
Yay! Vegan, cruelty-free, eco-friendly, homemade, cheap, and fully customizable. Oh yeah, and won't jack up your body or brain. Wheee!
