    Indian Chief 'Two Eagles' was asked by a white government official; "You have observed the white man for 90 years. You've seen his wars and his technological advances. You've seen his progress, and the damage he's done."

    The Chief nodded in agreement.

    The official continued; "Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?"

    The Chief stared at the government official for over a minute and then calmly replied.. "When white man find land, Indians running it, no taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, clean water. Women did all the work, Medicine Man free. Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing; all night having sex."

    Then the chief leaned back and smiled; "Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that."

    Day one... It worked pretty good for the most part. I got a little paranoid and put on a dab of regular deodorant when I got to school, at about 4:30pm so it lasted for most of the day without any notable incidents.
    I'll be working on and with people in close proximity, at school, so I don't want to bring BO to the table (pun intended).

    I'm sorry hon. Do you see a dermatologist? If not, maybe your regular doctor can recommend you one.

    Baking soda and the juice from Aloe Vera? It has little scent but will clog the sweat glands. If you are prone to yeast infections that is not a good choice. You can substitute Corn starch but it has equal or more attractions to yeast. Wiping with Hydrogen Peroxide (3%) will kill the bacteria that cause odors but it would have to be done often enough to become a chore.

    Also important to note is when you apply deodorant. I read a few articles a while back that said to put it on the night before. It keeps you from getting sweat stains and it soaks into your skin. I was a bit paranoid, but I found it does indeed work the whole day when I apply it at night. It's like I'm just non odorous under there. Weird.

    I never had a problem with it. The big thing is to remember to reapply through out the day if you are sweating. Also, if I was feeling smelly, I kept a little essential oil spritzer for the pits in my purse--tea tree and lavender with a wee bit of bergamont in witch hazel. Just spray and reapply the rock thingy, and go.

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”

    I use Hydrogen Peroxide (10%) body wash. You might want to try DF's suggestion first then see if a more stronger percentage will help you.

    That's a really good tip, thanks.

    I've decided to give this rock salt thing a go as well.
