  7. […] My current favorite recipe – again, three ingredients, plus essential oils if you want it scented – is from the Crunchy Betty blog, though there are variations all over the internet.

  10. […] Most commercial deodorants/antiperspirants are so bad for you. Aluminum being the #1 bad ingredient in most. I have read so many articles and had my sister and friends inform me on how bad aluminum is and how I’m putting toxic stuff into my body. I have gone the arm & hammer and Tom’s of maine route and recently, I’ve used the Kiss My Face brand. These are SOOO expensive and with a my son and possibly leaving my job soon, I needed to find a way to do this on a budget. I went ahead and researched homemade deodorant and found this: recipe […]

  17. […] Posted on July 1, 2015 by tnwife Standard I have been wanting to change over a lot of our personal product for some time now. We have used a bunch of different toothpaste recipes and no one has approved yet so I’m still working on that. My husband has been using some of my concoctions for a while now. I made him a beard wax that he was also using in his hair. Because he has some psoriasis on his scalp it started to spread to his face under the beard so we switched from the wax to a medicated (via essential oils) beard oil for his beard and hair. It seems to be working well for him! (Yay! Crunchy win!) Now on to the latest DIY.. Deodorant! I ran out of our normal stuff a little more than a month ago. I used my husband’s for a bit then got tired of picking off hair and went out and bought some Toms brand fragrance free stuff. It was ok for a day or two but then I felt like it made me stink more than usual. Like it made me sweat more than normal. So I went without. I’ve had a recipe for about 4 months now but haven’t been able to find the arrowroot powder that it calls for. So after a couple of weeks of going all natural, I finally am at a point where I NEED my armpits to smell pretty. It could be the fact that its Monday and y last real shower was Thursday night (after children went to bed). *Let me just throw in that we swam 2 of those 4 showerless days… Hopefully that makes me a little less gross. Today as I was tossing the diapers in the wash I noticed I had some natural cornstarch on my dryer from when I had to remove a coconut oil stain from some pants (see my crunchy points are racking up here! *cloth diapers, coconut oil, all natural cornstarch!!) So I took it down to the kitchen remembering that cornstarch has the same properties as arrowroot in this situation so I found a recipe and wiped it right up! I added in ylang ylang and wild orange for the yummy pit smell and stirred it all together. I’m waiting for it to solidify so I can use it then I’ll let y’all know how it works!! So It went into the freezer and when I took it out, I had a time getting the top off haha. I finally got it off then it wouldn’t roll up to be usable. I let it sit on the counter  then rolled it up once it was soft but then had to stick it back into the fridge before I squished it into my pits. After 20 minutes or so it was perfect! My reviews of it… it needs more essential oils because all I can smell is coconut oil I’m going to have to be really careful to let it dry or soak in or whatever before I put a shirt on bc the oil looks like it i going to leave oil stains so Boo on that I do not stink and my pits are dry! Woo Hoo!! I’ll take that over the cons any day! ***Link to the recipe I used […]
