A week of homemade

Or 2 weeks because I actually started this post last week and never finished it.

I found that commercial to be ridiculously funny when I was in high school, and I still find it rather amusing.

The week before last, I made my own deodorant after having 3 “natural” brands fail on me. By fail I mean after 6-10 hours they left me smelly as if I hadn’t put on any at all. I made deodorant from a recipe that I linked to here with the “promise” of reviewing it. As you can see I haven’t posted anything since. That’s how I roll.

Anywho, I just used cornstarch, baking soda, and coconut oil (all organic), and I have to say, this stuff ROCKS! I’ve had no irritation, no smelliness after 24 hours, and I don’t even notice that post-run funk I used to have. The hubster even tried it because the last antiperspirant/deodorant he bought irritated him, and he loves it too.

Now being a deodorant only, and not antiperspirant, I still sweat, though not near as much as with the 3 “natural” brands I had tried. So, yeah, if you are prone to sweaty pits, you will still have sweaty pits to some extent. But without the funk, and maybe not as much.

I haven’t cleaned out an old antiperspirant container to put the homemade deodorant in yet and so it is kind of a pain to currently be putting it on as a paste, but I will rectify that with the next batch.

Definitely, definitely I recommend this homemade deodorant! If you try it, and the cornstarch irritates, use arrowroot powder instead.
