Dr Oz: Shark Tank on Dr Oz
Are you familiar with the show Shark Tank? The “Sharks” are tough self-made millionaires and today they are joining Dr. Oz to choose the best viewer home remedies that everyone can use! Check out their ideas and see which one you would consider buying for yourself.
Dr Oz: Homemade Deodorant That Works
Shark Tank judge Daymond John says that he knows if a product pitch is a good one if it resonates with him as something that is needed while Lori Greiner says she knows something will be successful if it solves a problem, can be done at an affordable price, and is something that appeals to a wide audience.
Dr. Oz invited three viewers to pitch their products to the Sharks and see if they can get one of them to “bite”.
No B.O. Deodorant Cream: ½ teaspoon baking soda, 5 drops essential oil, 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 1 teaspoon white vinegar, and juice of ½ a lemon. Combine ingredients in exact order for a homemade deodorant that really works.
Amy’s Fire Cider: Fill a jar with ¼ of citrus slices, onion, garlic, horseradish, ginger, and hot pepper. Add apple cider vinegar to fruit & veggie mixture. Allow to steep for 6 weeks. Add honey to taste.
Detox Clay Mask: 1 tablespoon bentonite clay (kitty litter), 1 teaspoon coconut oil, ½ tablespoon honey, and splash of water. Mix into a paste, apply to your skin, and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Rinse and enjoy bright, youthful skin.
Dr. Oz and the Sharks chose the No B.O. Deodorant Cream as something they would consider a good investment, but found all the ideas good.
Made the No BO recipe, but its very soupy. How long does it have to sit?
I agree with Tani, the deodorant is a soupy, blobby mess. I don’t see any way this can be applied. I’m going to try microwaving to emulsify and then refrigerate it.
No BO recipe. Essential Oil covers a broad selection. What type did she use? Having an allergy to perfume, cologne and anything scented, I am always looking for natural products.
She used peppermint. I can’t make this recipe emulsify into anything thicker than the lemon juice.
She used peppermint oil. Remember that you can have a sensitivity to “natural” products. You may want to test it first.

I have tried the no BO receipe… Fantastic! I melted the coconut oil first. It rehardened a bit after, but I just had to mix it once again when it had cooled off and I now keep it in the fridge. Love it! Personnally, I use green lemon juice instead of lemon, and I used lemongrass essential oil as sent. Perfect. Thank you, been looking for something like that for years!
Make sure if you are using coconut oil it is expellar pressed, It is sold in mason jars near the olive oil and is SOLID at room temperature. I think this may be why some of you have “soupy” results.
I used the expeller pressed refined coconut oil at room temperature and it’s still a liquid… I put it in the fridge in a canning jar to see if it will harden to a cream. Am I doing it right? I guess ill let you know if it works
This really works. I do have to mix it for qute but it does eventually whip up into a ice creamy texture. Once I get it whipped I put it in a disposable plastic cup with lid you use for food left overs. It has a slightly rounded base to the cup. Once I put it in the refrigerated it hardens again as it gets cold. Then I can pop it out of the cup in its solid form and I can use it like a bar of soap. the suface melts almost as fast as I apply it to my skin. In this way I can use it like a deorderant stick. When I’m done I can pop it back in the cup, close the lid, and put it back in the fridge to keep solid for the next use. I did try to go back to my regular deoderant one day when I had run out of my initial batch. I noticed the difference within the hour. I literally have almost no body order when I use this recipe. I love it.
Ok after a couple of weeks of use my armpits are red and raw. Going to try making some without the lemon juice.
I whipped it up and it hardened but I still had lemon and vinegar in the bottom so it separated in the fridge. Not quite sure what to do….
Sfaranth was your like this?
Mines still has the lemon and vinegar on the bottom. I have put it in the fridge. How can all of it mix together? Am I doing it right?
I had to whisk it for quite a while before all of the liquids would mix in completely, it formed a body butter texture..
you can use soy lethecin granules from your local natural food market to emulsify mix
I made a batch in June 2014. The liquids separated. Multiple mixing efforts did not fix that and I don’t care. It works! And it lasts. Just kept it in a plastic jar in the bathroom and use a cosmetic brush to stir and apply. I have an active lifestyle outdoors and live in Texas so I sweat a lot. This recipe is not perfect, but it works as well as or better than commercial deodorants and antiperspirants. Made it a second time in August.
I have made it and it is great. Its just that if I shave my underarms, and even days after I put it on and it really burns and irritates them bad. 🙁 I know the lemon juice helps with the odor, and the baking soda, so how am I to lower both without it not being effective?
I tried the coconut oil no particular bought it at grocery store. Baking soda and corn starch, and few drops of tea tree oil. Stirred it up and I love it. No odor. I have had problems with body odor as I have large breasts and they hang down and sweat underneath. By the end of the day, I could not stand myself. I have used this recipe and I am odor free for 24 hours.
Could someone please give me the exact measurements. I lost it. I’ve done it once and it worked perfectly. Thanx in advance.
