A little Hippie like

Yes, I made my own deodorant and my husband called me a Hippie. haha

I've searched high and low for years trying to find a deodorant without antiperspirant in it because that's what they have linked to Breast Cancer. I've found some without it but they just do NOT work. Half way through the day, (mind you, I sit at a desk all day) I'm starting to stink. That's not good and often leads me to putting Dove on at work. haha

A girl I know, Jaye, told me about a recipe she had for making your own deodorant. You can go here for the recipe.

I made it today. It was SUPER easy and it's now sitting in the fridge hardening up. Tomorrow I will use it. I really hope it works as it's going to be way cheaper than buying deodorant AND so much better for me! I'll keep you posted after I try it!

Thanks, Jaye!


  1. I really hope it works for you Stacy! Another tip for you - it tends to dry out my skin a little if this happens to you, when you go to bed rub a little plain coconut oil into your underarms so they don't get dry.

  2. Oh...thanks! I've had this issue with ALOT of deodorants that I've found without AP in them. They dry them out so badly that it hurts. I will definitely do the coconut oil on them before bed! :-) I can't wait to try it!!

  3. When you say your husband called you a Hippie, I had to giggle a little! I can totally see you with bell bottoms and a leather vest with a tank top.. Straight out of Dazed and Confused :-P

    I tagged you in my blog!
