Natural Deodorant Recipe
I have been following a blog DeShawn Marie's Handcraft Soap and on July 28, 2010 she had a post on How to Make your Deodorant at Home. In her recipe, she uses a combontion of white beeswax, cocoa butter, coconut oil and essential oils to create this bar of deodorant.
She does not indicate whether or not she uses refined cocoa butter (the chocolate scent is removed) or not, I assuming (I know is not good to assume) she does because of the 3 different types of essential oils she uses. They definately would not smell that good with chocolate.
So this recipe sounds interesting to try. The only things I would have to purchase would be the essential oils. I use regular beeswax pastilles for my lip balm recipe so I am going to use that first because I have that on hand. I will see how that works, if it does not then I will have get the recommended white beeswax.
