*edit* about 6 months after i wrote this, a friend turned me on to a new natural deodorant that actually works on my gross body. i wrote about that deodorant here.
i’ve been trying all kinds of natural deodorants for years but they’re all terrible. tom’s of maine, geo deo, some weird crystal thing jenn got me, and several others, but every one of them makes me stink even worse than if i don’t wear any deodorant at all. wtf?
it sucks because i don’t want to wear the chemical stuff if i can avoid it, but i’m naturally a stinky guy and i’m paranoid about stinking so the natural stuff just isn’t a viable option for me so far. so i’m back on the wagon, smearing heavy metals in my armpits each morning.
what the hell is wrong with natural deodorants? why are they all so lousy? why do they make me smell worse than usual?
most importantly — is it me? do natural deodorants work fine for everyone else? maybe my stench is just too powerful for natural treatments. maybe i’m just a powerfully smelly guy.
