pros/ con home made deodorant



Pros

1. avoiding questionable chemicals in current products
2. have fun creating products customized to your needs
3. saving money with endless batches while also reusing old containers.
Con.
1. Finding what works for you
2. might be a bit messy.



After the small success of whipping up a sweat fight and odor control stick and considering I missed a ingredient...Time to made some more deodorant.

This batch refilled two reused stick deodorant container and since I made extra I decided to experiment.


Say hello to "Deodorant bar"  The first ever batch I made was missing baking soda and I found it lack the strength of a commercial brand. Having to reapply through out the day is not my cup of cake but still strong 3 containers of the stuff lasted..5 months. Finally at my last bar I  could wait no longer i I cut the last remaining bar and re-melt and added it to this newly made batch.
 
In a sauce pan I heated a pot of water to almost boiling. Enough to melt 1 spoon full of Shea butter and my last stick to a creamy consistency.

I found some recipes on youtube from some awesome ladies  and then did my own thing with what I learned. It's so simple to find recipes and tutorials online and experiment I leave it up to you to take matters into your own hands and join the fun!!!! XOXO
