1  California / California: North / East Bay Homemade Food Swap April 2011 on: February 20, 2011 08:43:54 AM


Food Swap is a place for you to trade your homemade/grown/prepared food items with others in a silent auction style community marketplace. Your homemade creations (breads, jams, pickles, sweets, canned goods, back yard eggs and produce, etc.) become your own personal currency for use in swapping with other participants.

Our first event will be on April 9th 2-5pm

The location will only have enough space for up to 30 swappers. You must pre-register to participate. Sign up's for spots will begin on March 19th, 3 weeks before the event.

Can men use this too? I am thinking of making it for my husband & myself.
I wonder what "manly" oils there are out there for him, so he doesn't think it is
a girly scent.

Tea Tree Oil is what I use. It's anti bacterial so it kills odor causing funk. The scent works fine for both men and women. Both my boyfriend and myself use it.

I need to try this, the one I use now is hard to get off when I shower it just sticks to my skin.  Thanks for sharing.

I also would like to know how hard it is to get off in the shower?  My deodorant seems to stick to my pits too.

I have never had a problem, not heard anyone report having a problem with it sticking to their skin. I simply wash off with soap and it comes right off.

You shouldn't be applying that much. I'd say 4 swipes max. A little goes a long way.

I'd appreciate if some one would comment on how much residue it leaves on clothes. I have less of a problem with irratated skin (I just switch it up and I'm eventually fine) and more of a problem that it cakes into the armpits of my shirts and ruins my clothes.

Thanks for posting this wonderful tutorial girl on bike!

Some of my friends have reported that it gets on their clothes if they put it on before pulling their shirt over. I always make sure to put it on after I'm dressed. It works well for me but from time to time I have seen it come through in my pits. It always washes out though. I've never had this stuff ruin any of my clothes or I just wouldn't use it.
Other of my friends have reported that there is no issue at all. I think it has a lot to do with your personal chemistry and how it works with the deo.

Thanks for sharing. This looks really cool so I think Im going to try making some. Would you say this works as an anti-perspirant as well?  Also, any reviews from those that have made it? Im mainly interested in how well it holds up throughout the day.  Thanks in advance.

It won't stop you from sweating, it only stops you from stinking. I use it myself and so does my boyfriend. It works well for both of us.

I just tried it for the first time last night and I am never buying storebought deodorant again. Although I tried making it with almond oil, which didn't really work the same way as coconut, apparently, but it still worked!
I wrote about it on my blog:
Thanks again for the posting!

The almond oil didn't work as well because it is a liquid. Coconut oil is a solid at room temp but melts when it touches your skin.

I'm so glad it seems to be working for everyone.
Share the recipe with your friends and blog about it! I would absolutely love it if you linked back to my original blog post about it: http://girlonbikewrites.blogspot.com/2010/01/homemade-deodorant.html

Just made some this afternoon....it was so easy, looks great, and smells DIVINE!! I love knowing exactly what's in it, and the fact you can tailor it to suit your own needs...I'm praying it works good(have yet to try it...) Thanks so much for sharing!

Let us know how it works for you. I'm sure its like most other deodorants in the fact that it may not work for everyone but it is worth a shot. Us crafty types like making as much stuff ourselves as possible. And I love the fact that is saves money, packaging, and all the energy that goes in to producing, shipping, and selling a normal bar of deodorant.

Thanks everyone. It was a ton of work but I'm really happy with how it turned out.

We didn't use any special paint. Just a high gloss latex paint. We read that it is important to use latex so it can expand and contract with the heat of the tub/water.

A few months back my boyfriend Dan and I bought a house and one of the very first things we decided to tackle in our new home was this bathroom:

We gutted it completly, even rebuilt the subfloor and drywall. The houses original bathtub had been sunken in to the floor at one point so getting that thing out was quite a task.

After Dan was done with the structural stuff I was allowed to design as I wish. Here is what I came up with. Dan and I are very happy with the results. We painted the original tub and a new sink. Dan built the sink vanity from scratch.
