+1 for deodorant crystal. I am interested in the spray. Anyone have a link?

There is a difference between antiperspirants versus deodorants. Antiperspirants actually block your pores and keep you from sweating. Deodorants kill the bacteria that eat the salts in your sweat and cause body odor.

where do I get mineral salt spray?

Amazon, Whole Foods, drug stores, health food stores, etc. The spray is just mineral salts dissolved in water. Do a google search for "crystal deodorant spray" and you'll find a gazillion places to buy it.

do you bring along deodorant? can baking soda relieve smelly armpit odor?

Wear wool. Synthetic fibers will smell like godzilla after a day or two. Wool doesn't smell that bad.

If it's too hot for wool you'll be wearing loose fitting clothing anyway.

I've never needed any kind of deodorant outdoors.
