It's A No-go As A Deo.

Well this is embarrassing...admitting that I'm an idiot and I stink.  My brilliant adaptation of a natural homemade deodorant seems to be lacking the deodorizing qualities I was looking for in a...deodorant. 

I just came in from my ridge top hike and then did 20 minutes on our elliptical machine thingy.  I stink.  Fortunately, there is a lingering beeswax/lavender scent intermingled with the stink, but I stink.  It didn't work.  I guess leaving out a few key ingredients, like baking soda and arrowroot, was a dumb idea.  I'm going to melt down one of my jars of goo and stir in baking soda to see if that helps.  The other I am leaving as is which, as it turns out, made a fabulous body butter.  My rosacea face seems to be happy with it too.

Going to take a shower now and then I'll be applying the "commercial stuff".


  1. Let me know how it works with the baking soda in it. I have considered making my own deodorant, but was worried it wouldn't work!

  2. I have not been pleased with the homemade deodorants we have tried (even though my mom uses them without a problem). Let me know if you find a good recipe!
