|homemade deodorant/recycled container|
I really didn't know if this was going to be something I would fall in love with or deeply regret. I mean, deodorant is something I personally find very important. I must say I wasn't exactly thrilled with the idea of stopping odor but not wetness. And I wondered if starting this project in the winter (who REALLY sweats in the winter?) was going to skew the results. But I think I mentioned before that DH's internal thermostat was off all winter and we had to keep our home warm. Very warm. OK, HOT!
There were pros and cons to this project. The bad things were the wetness from sweat and the deodorant (in the container) will get runny if the room is too warm. But truthfully the good outweighed the bad. There are no metals being forced into my skin pores and the coconut oil has given me such soft skin. Plus the cost savings are awesome. AND DH really likes it, too! The first batch lasted us both about 7 weeks and when it was gone, he put in the request for more. No regrets here!

If you're thinking that there is still a lot of learning going on at our little place, you would be 100% correct!
