Here's the one I use. First I put a small bit of coconut oil under my arms. Next, I use a cotton ball to apply the following:


1 part cornstarch to 1 part baking soda, add in some drops of tea tree oil and some lavendar oil. I store in an airtight container in the bathroom.


I used this during my student teaching and it even prevented sweating, most of the time.


I've never heard of orris root or calamus... sounds interesting.

Coconut has amazing properties (antioxidant, antimicrobial, soothing, easily absorbed) and is an ingredient I use in many formulations. I make a deodorant using it with arrowroot powder, baking soda, extra virgin coconut oil, pure essential oils of lavender, eucalyptus, peppermint, lemongrass, and tea tree.


Calamus root is used to make calamine lotion. Orris root smells like violets. They both have anti-inflammatory properties.


Here's some info on orris root and calamus root.
