I just made mine and it works like a dream. Gross aluminum chloride deodorant never worked this well.

Lush makes something similar...they had three hard bars, my fav smelled of lemon and tea tree, and soft bars...my fav was patchouli.
Awesome that you've posted a tutorial, they were my favourite!

Love this idea!
however, is there another alternative to coconut oil? what other oils would work?

Can I use a starch other than corn, like tapioca?

I have such an allergy to corn that even the starch gives me a bad reaction.

I'm LOVING this stuff! I made some last night... test run today. Went to work, AC is out (I live in Texas and it's June). I don't stink! Huzzah! And Ginger-

Love this idea!
however, is there another alternative to coconut oil? what other oils would work?

My assumption is that coconut is ideal because it more or less solidifies at room temp, is that correct, girlonbike? I wondered about that, too, but then thought that maybe other oils might be too 'oily'. I'm kind of new to making my own bath and body products, so maybe I got a freak batch of coconut oil, but mine's a soft solid but melts REALLY easily. Maybe the body heat softening the oil makes it go on easier? I dunno, but that would be my guess.

The easiest to get coconut oil is coconut 76...it melts at 76 degrees, usually stays hard in the winter and is more or less super soft/liquid in the summer.

I haven't tried this recipe, but if you want to use a liquid oil, you could probably add some palm stearic (stearic acid) which is a hard, kind of waxy flake that is basically the "hard" part from solid oils. Just melt together and when it cools it will harden up. It's used in thickening creams and lotions.
