So I have always wanted to become more of a hippie.. I think it all started by watching South Park and Eric Cartmans hatred towards hippies and it kind of planted a seed of.. love. I just really feel for odd balls and hippies are obviously oddballs.
One step to become more of a hippie was to start using natural deo, I really went nuts after finding out I was pregnant. Threw away everything made out of plastic and instead went all metal, glass and wood. My husband still complains that we don't have any non-stick pans at home.
Anyhow, last winter I took it a step further and I started making my own deo. To my surprise this was just as good, if not better than the ones I have used previously. I absolutely love it. LOVE! It keeps me feeling fresh, dry and smooth as a criminal.
Here is the recipe:
1 part cornstarch/arrowroot
1 part melted coconut oil
1 part baking soda
Mix it all and its done! It really is that easy! No joke!
If you want it so be even better, mix in some lemon zest and vanilla bean. It smells and looks like cake batter! Or if you want to do the easier route, just mix with a few drops of essential oils. I always make a few batches of this and give it away for friends and family. Some love it, and some …need a bit more convincing that green and mean is the way to go. I still have faith!
Have you made your own deo? What do you think?
I have a deep passion for clean and green living so keep your eyes out for more post if you are interested!
