When I used Tom's I itched like crazy, I was out of Aubrey. I will say that the spray on from Aubrey was not as good, it is the Roll On Ester C!

I used that one all last summer and it worked well.

1/4 C. Baking soda
1/4 C. arrowroot powder or cornstarch. (arrowroot powder is preferred)
1. Combine equal portions of baking soda and arrowroot powder
2. Slowly add coconut oil and work it in with a spoon or hand blender until it maintains a firm, but pliant texture. It should be about the same texture as commercial deodorant--solid, but able to be applied easily. If it is too wet, add more powder to thicken.
3. You can either scoop this recipe into your old deodorant containers or place in a small container with a lid and apply with fingers for each use. Makes about 1 cup.
**you have to keep this cold though, as Coconut oil melts. That's the only drawback. And no, you don't stink wearing this stuff.

I use Kiss My Face lavender, because I have sensitive skin and this doesn't hurt me. It isn't perfect. I do shower daily and give my pits a swipe if the day gets long. I also use 4711 on my arms and upper chest if it is going to be a humdinger of a day. You don't smell 4711 until you sweat.

This is a thread from 2010.
Err, EKKK. Wonder how the pits are doing now?

but will prevent b.o. My dd sweats excessively. We live in FL so that doesn't help. She has been getting itching and an underarm rash when she uses just about any type of deodorant and/or anti-perspirant. She is 18 and this is a recent thing. Right now she is using Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystals. The rash has gone away but it does nothing for the body odor. She washes often with anti-bacterial soap and shaves her underarms regularly. She has tried Tom of Maine's but it is causing a rash, as well.
Is she using unscented products? I get rashes from many scents. If she's getting a rash from Tom's and it's scented, you may be able to use their unscented one.
One of the best deoderants I've ever found it the unscented one by Desert Essence with tea tree oil. I can also use the unscented Tom's long lasting one (the old Tom's was useless & I had to put it on 4 times a day).
Another problem could be the razor she shaves with. Dd was getting rashes she thought was from deoderant, but it was the razor.

I mix it with some baking soda and arrowroot but the soda could cause you irritation if you are not used to it.
