    I use this recipe too (or very similar). Sprinkle in some essential oils for a nice scent if you want. Only problem is, this recipe turns into a liquidy mess in hot temps (or even, in a suitcase in the truck of your car… so watch out!)

    I agree with Constance, It does melt!
    I have also used just a lime slice to rub on, and it works extremely well, although sometimes a little too stringent. My solution (and it works well) is to first rub the coconut oil on, then the lime juice. You could top it off with a dusting of baking soda!

    Try mixing 3 parts baking soda, 1 part cornstarch, few drops orange essential oil in an old spice shaker jar. Wet hands, shake on mixture, rub on underarms.

      I will try that out! Thank you, Liz!

    Just be careful with cornstarch…..corn is a highly GMO product.
