Warm up coconut oil till a liquid by putting a jar of coconut oil in warm water. Add 2 parts coconut oil and one part baking soda together and mix. Let the mix cool off and it will become solid again. Use it as an underarm deodorant and very effective way to stop bad odour.

Apply coconut oil to the underarms and spread with fingers to cover the whole area. Then apply baking soda on to it.

Make a paste with baking soda and a little water, and put it under your arms. This controls the bacteria and can reduce sweating. Interestingly, it is the opposite (alkaline) to using apple cider vinegar or lemon juice (acidic) on your skin. It seems that when you have smelly bacteria on your skin, disrupting the pH in an alkaline or an acid direction is a solution.
