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.

Where do you find Bay Rum scent?
Is it an oil?

I stumbled across this just as I was running out of my store bought deodorant and decided to try it! My bar is cooling now, I used lavender oil and it smells so good I can't wait to use it!

My boyfriend asked me to make him some, just in a less girly scent  Grin

I make my own deodorant also.. I use peppermint and rose and tea tree oils in mine.. The peppermint is very cooling unless you use too much just a few drops will do ya... Ill never buy store bought again either.. Thanks for sharing this..

Can't wait to give this a try.

Also regarding essential oils someone asked about. I had this thought...perhaps you could try the baking soda and water technique someone posted, but instead of water make a strong fragrant tea to mix with the baking soda. It probably wouldn't be something you could make in quantity, but could be done on the fly? (although I've never done it myself, just thought it might be something to experiment with)

I also need to confess that I'm a total dork. Several years ago I bought some deodorant from Melaleuca and it smelled so good I started to carry it in my purse just so I could occasionally give it a wiff LOL I believe it had tea tree oil (well I know it had that, since Melaleuca is a tea tree oil MLM), rosemary, sage and possibly peppermint. I know that I will work towards getting those oils so I can replicate that marvelous scent LOL (seriously I think I'm just  way too dorky LOL)  Plus I'd think that those scents would be unisex in nature. (other more masculine scents might be something like musk, patchouli, woodsy scents like pine, fir, etc and cucumber is a scene in men scents too (usually mixed with lime...but if he's an outdoorsy guy...probably want to skip the lime based on the prior warning)

Also someone asked about where to get tea tree oil. I know GNC carries it. If you have a store that carries organic goods, they will most likely carry tea tree oil also. I'm rural, but one of our local supermarkets has a organic section and they have a few different essential oils (tea tree and lavender, and I think bergomot...and possibly orange?) and we also have a small herb shop that also carries it. But if there is nothing in your area for organic or herbal shops, then try mothernature.com or just google tea tree oil and select the "sale" option on the left side of the page to narrow your search and I'm sure you'll find something (or a million somethings LOL)

Thank you for the tutorial Wink I just picked up a jar of coconut oil last night and already have the other ingredients on hand. (I'll just have to slowly add other oils to my collection as we're financially challenged atm)

To find essential oils take a look at our supplier list, they'll definitely be cheaper and better quality than anything you can find in a store near you (those natural stores rip you off so badly! It makes me mad!)

Yep, I totally agree.  Where will I find the supplier list?
