I made deodorant!
So, here's another thing I've thought for awhile about trying, and finally got around to it. Homemade deodorant. I think the fact that I am almost out pushed me to do this. :) It is so easy. I literally took less than five minutes. I watched a video on You Tube before making it and it was as easy as it looked. The lady on the video said that she and her husband have been using it for 2 years and have been totally happy with it. So why not try it out?
Here's the link if you would like to watch it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ar0BF6hMuGE&noredirect=1
This is all I used : 1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup corn starch (or she uses arrowroot powder)
6 Tblsp. coconut oil
Put them in a bowl and start mixing!
This is what it looked like when I was done:
And then I put it in this little 1/2 cup jar. It is better to keep in a glass jar, rather than plastic.
And there you go! You can apply it with your fingers, or if you don't want to do that, put it in an empty deodorant container and use it like normal.
