This isn't really a rant at all. I'm not really in the mood to rant. I just want to share my deodorant recipe. But, here's the lesson, store bought deodorants = bad. anti-perspirant = badder.
Here's the recipe.
2Tbsp Cocoa butter
3Tbsp baking soda
Put everything except the essential oils in a bowl and microwave 20 second intervals with stirring between until all melted. If you don't have a microwave, all the power to you. You can place the bowl in a pot of boiling water and stir until melted.
Then you just add whatever essential oils suit your fancy probably 10-15 drops should do.
Pour into a jar, when it cools it should have a very deodorant like consistency. You can keep it in your cupboard.
this is genius... use an old deodorant container. Clean it out really well first then pour your deodorant in. Put in the refridgerator for about an hour.
Now, I must add that I LOVE the shea butter in this recipe, however, it was hard to find and really expensive. I probably won't buy it again. Here is another option.
2Tbsp baking soda
3Tbsp coconut oil
I'm sure that this will work just as well, and who knows you might already have coconut oil around for cradle cap or shaving your legs.
