Coconut Oil as a Deodorant

I read somewhere a few months ago, while wintering in Mexico, that coconut oil is a great deodorant. I was already using it on my face and body as a moisturizer so figured I’d give this a try too.

Well, I must say it has been wonderful… Even when you do start to sweat there is no offensive odour, unlike the “cover-up” effect you get with most antiperspirants/deodorants. It also doesn’t leave that white coating on your clothing that happens when you pull a t-shirt over your head before your deodorant has had enough time to dry.
