He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young

Homemade Deodorant

Yes, some may say I've gone off the deep end and yes... I admit my means of hygene have gotten a little crazy but to alay any fears you may have...
I will try anything once and I will not continue to use something that doesn't work. But this.... yes, this works.

I've seen this recipe several places:
1/3 cup coconut oil
5-10 drops tea tree oil
10 or so drops your favorite essential oil {optional}
baking soda
old deodorant dispenser {optional}

Melt the coconut oil in a  pan on your stovetop, drop in 1/4 c of baking soda. Stir well and then add tea tree and other oil {if you've chosen to use it}. Stir again and then slowly add more baking soda one tablespoon at a time and stir until you almost can't stir it anymore but is still pasty. Spoon the mixture into a bowl or deodorant dispenser and let set. ** Remember coconut oil has a really low melting point so on really hot days you may want to keep it in your fridge because, though it won't become liquid again, it may become too soft to apply with easily with a dispenser.

(It's been 5 years and we are still using this recipe! Even got the Hubs to switch over!)
