i try to use deo before and i think im allergic even if deo stick,roll on, and deospray and my mom told me to used lemon or calamansi better than deodorant and my father also is allergic specially if roll-on and there is a big bump comes in his underarm and when he consult it to the dr they said he need to go for operation to take it out before its become too big and the dr suggest to not use any roll-on deodorant anymore because of the allergic reaction:-( so now i usually use lemon 3x a week before taking a shower.:-)

I think no need for us to use the lace type of deodorant. As you said many got allergic to the chemical component contain in it. Previously, mine like yours and I stop using it after I felt that my skin turned itchy. So now, better for me to have a self prepared aroma therapy bath by using lavender flowers. More better and very effective to me for my body scent.

Your just soak your lavender flowers in bath tub/big pail, one hour before taking bath. And then take your bath as usual. I did it once a week and it freshen me up after bath.

I read that the deoderants without anti-perspirent are safer to use. I have tried them, but think they do the job well enough.I have also tried a few all natural ones with no luck. My aunt uses baking soda only, yuck. She says "Hey if it works for the fridge and lockers why not?"

How about trying this natural/organic deodorant? Rosewater Deodorant You will need 1 cup water ,2 tbsp baking soda ,1 tbsp rosewater Stir baking soda into water and let it dissolve. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes and then stir it up again. There is often still some powder that doesn't dissolve and falls to the bottom, so it needs to be stirred up again. Repeat step 2 until you cannot see any powder left into the water (it should be clear). Add the rosewater and stir. Pour into a spray bottle. To use: spray 2-3 spritzes under each arm once a day.
