    Matt – Just an FYI, I think http://www.vitaminlife.com/product-exec/PNAME/Crystal-Deodorant-Spray-Mist/product_id/19869?gclid=CKHvrM70-7ICFRBgMgod_0kAHg might be what Hayley was referring to when she mentioned buying it at Whole Foods. It’s a spray version of the crystal deodorants. Thanks for all of your awesome links. You’re good stuff.

      Oh thanks. I was wondering about that.

    I have had some success with this crystal spray product although what has worked best for me is making my own deodorant mixing coconut oil, baking soda, arrowroot, coco butter and lavender essential oil. http://www.iherb.com/Crystal-Body-Deodorant-Crystal-Body-Deodorant-Spray-4-oz-118-ml/5710

    Some other natural options for deodorant and other personal care products are Oyin Handmade (especially recommend the Funk Butter) http://www.oyinhandmade.com/ and also Nandi’s Naturals (the Pit Stick) http://kreyolgirl.com/. For homemade effective deodorants, there’s vodka (may need to change ratio of water to vodka by increasing water–http://originalwombman.blogspot.com/2009/11/another-use-for-vodka.html) and there’s the deodorant butter I found here. Also, I have a very sensitive scalp and so I’d been using Head & Shoulders to keep it feeling good. I recently made the switch to Pine Tar soap (Grandpa’s brand with only a few ingredients) and it works as well if not better than Head and Shoulders. Also, jojoba oil has been fabulous as a moisturizer for my skin.
