It is great to see all the scent ideas and recipes in this thread! I just decided to start making my own deodorant instead of buying the aromacreme stuff from Lush, so I'm hoarding flavour combinations. My friend sent me a great link about making cream deodorant, which is something I didn't see covered here yet:

I hadn't thought of making deo for gifts but since a tiny bit lasts a long time, it's probably really easy to make "bulk" batches. Even a cup would make some to give away.

I love this thread!!
I have been making and using my own deodorant for probably 6 months now.
I am an excessive sweat-er, and though this formula doesn't prevent sweating, it does kill the smell caused by bacteria. (It can be harmful to stop sweating, actually!)

Cream Deodorant
1 T coconut oil
1 T shea butter
15 drops Essential Oil
1 t cornstarch
2 t baking soda
*Melt-n-mix, put in a pot and apply with fingertips.
 
I personally, have been using 5 drops tea tree oil (it kills bateria, which causes the odor!), 5 drops orange essential oil, and 10 drops lavendar oil to this, and it smells like sugar cookies! I also found that I do not need to melt it, and probably shouldn't, as it becomes very runny!*
*I believe it is runny because I purchased a butter from Bath and Body Works sometime ago, but forgot what kind of butter it was. It was shea, I thought, but it's something different. Had I used shea, the recipe would have turned out more solid. To solidify what I have now, I put it in the fridge and scoop a bit out each morning. I only need apply once a day!
I poured the mixture into two baby food jar (cleaned and dried), one larger and one smaller - they were filled, and in 6 months I have barely put a dent in the larger one. Wink

Cheesy Had I checked that site out BEFORE I posted, I would have known we were referencing the same recipe! I found mine from a lady named kimberlily on longhaircommunity.com . She calls it her own, so I am assuming she created it (?). It is a great recipe though, for sure, whoever made it originally!

Wow...all natural homemade deodorant...awesome!

my fav scents lately have been chamomile and lavender, banana and coconut (sounds weird but smells like summer), and tried and true vanilla. I have never seen deodorants in these scents before, I'm getting a lil' excited!  Grin
