Not a project in itself but a part of my ever growing "flowers and butterflies" collection, yeh I know this is a leaf  Wink

I'm interested in the natural deo' too and I must say it looks good enough to eat  Grin

alwaysinmyroom: I don't have a link but I added the recipe here. I don't know what effects the shea butter will have on it, but the recipe I posted totally works. At least, it does for me and my husband. It won't stop you from sweating, but it kept me from stinking even during crazy hot summer days.

rantyhippie: Wow! That's scary! I've never heard of anyone having such a bad reaction to antiperspirant before.
The deodorant is really quick and easy to make. It takes me about 15 minutes or so to whip up a batch and that includes digging through my cupboard to find the ingredients. I've never measured how much it makes but I'm guessing slightly less than 3/4 cup.

The pink handspun a few pages back is lovely!! Me want!! The deodorant also looks very interesting - bath & body products are something else I'd like to try.

Cute leaf too! I really need to crack my 100 flowers to knit book open!

Homemade deodorant is a great idea. I'm allergic to antiperspirant also but unfortunately I'm also allergic to tea tree oil. Sad

Skip it. You can substitute another essential oil or forgo it all together. I made my first batch with just lavender essential oil and it worked great. Some people skip the essential oils completely. That's the beauty of DIY - you change it to make it fit you!

I was wondering about the deodorant ... the coconut oil that you used. Is that the coconut oil that you can get in the grocery store? Or is it a different type? Thanks for your help!!

Thanks Cinnamon I'll try it without the oil.   Smiley

I received some dyed roving I bought from Zombie_Queen yesterday and gave spinning a try this afternoon.  It's so much fun!  I think I'm going to try plying with a commercial yarn tonight and will post a photo once that's done.
