Be aware that much baking soda will rub, especially when you start to sweat and will cause a burning rash under your arm as will cinnamon. A teaspoon of baking soda to a cup of cornstarch will work as well without the burn. Add a couple of drops of rosemary or tea tree oil to eliminate odor causing bacteria.
