So, being that i’m the home-making foodie… i decided after reading a friend’s blog (click here) that it may be time to try my shot at making some other items in the house. I know several people who make their own lip balm. So decided I was going to start with making my own deodorant.
Here’s my experience:
First I got out all the ingredients. Typical baker fashion. I mixed the powder together and realized that the coconut oil was really hard. So knowing from some advice it doesn’t take much to get it melt a little…so I just let it sit and mixed the essential oil in. [btw you can use your own combo of this… but I LOVE lime & mixed in eucalyptus lemon and it smells SOOO good i almost want to eat it (i wouldn’t though…)
So finally as the coconut oil was starting to “melt” i scrapped it & mixed it into the mix of the mason jar. Realized next time mixing in bowl first & then moving to mason jar. It’s crazy working through the opening.
But–i got it made & put it in the fridge to get it a little colder… so it hardens. But I already used some 😉
here are the photos.
so one item made—& the trail will soon begin I have to find a way to keep it cool since the oil is a LOT funky.
