Coconut Oil on Everything
Coconut oil is a God given spectacular use case for numerous things. You can use it to cook (don't believe the talk of how it's 'bad' for you), you can use it on your body, hell, you can use it as sexual lubricant.
However, the greatest place I have found the uses of coconut oil are in the bathroom for grooming purposes.
For years, I have been looking for solutions to the deodorant problem: You smell bad, but the modern deodorants all contain aluminum and chemicals you probably shouldn't be putting on yourself, much less in places that should breathe and are porous. Great way to give yourself Alzheimer's and cancer. Alz-cer.
As someone that has had hyperhydrosis since highschool, this is a challenge. There would not be a day in which I would come home and the pitties would not be there.
I've tried antiperspirants with way too much aluminum. I've used activated charcoal. I've tried roll on, liquid, solid, whatever. I gave up on this, but one day...
Enter coconut oil.
You might think that such a simple fix not possible.
But - I have completely defeated the deodorant demon, and you can too.
You must not wear any of this shit that takes years off of your life. Start using baking soda and coconut oil. It's that simple.
The process is as follows:
Get a jar of coconut oil. You can get nearly 2.5 kilograms from Costco for $20. This should last you the better part of a year, if not longer.
Get a box of baking soda. 2 kilos is $5 dollars. Again, this will last you probably closer to 2 years.
After a shower, dry your armpits and other places that might produce unpleasant smells. Stick your hand in the coconut oil jar, and get a nice amount on your hands. Rub on these aforementioned places.
Pour a little baking soda on your hands. TAP - DO NOT RUB on your armpits. Baking soda is an abrasive and will cause irritation if you try to rub it in to sensitive areas.
After this, you are set for upwards of two days of odour protection. I skip the baking soda on 3 or 4 of the days of the week.
You won't get the "nice smell" compliments from wearing Old Spice (do people actually like how that smells?) - but you could add an essential oil to the mix if you really want to. I kinda like smelling like nothing.
Here's the best part: I have stopped profusely sweating since applying this combination. I don't know why it is, but coconut oil and baking soda works better to prevent sweating than antiperspirants. I'm not kidding. I've tried nearly all of them - this is the best solution I've found in over a decade.
Stop shrinking your peepee, stop getting Alzheimer's, and stop getting armpit cancer.
As always, this is my opinion and not medical information. Consult your doctor and stuff.
