DIY deodorant fail



Who knew I would be such a sensitive soul? The first diy beauty fail for ages …

The recipe from Wellness Mama (and many other sites) did warn that some people are sensitive to baking soda in this, but surely not me …

But maybe you won’t be sensitive or you could try this without the baking soda (bicarbonate of soda) as I will be.

To make a trial batch – plenty for a couple of weeks – just mix

3 teaspoons coconut oil with 2 teaspoons of shea butter then add 2 teaspoons of baking soda and 2 teaspoons of arrowroot or cornflour. Finish with a couple of drops of rosemary essential oil (or lavender or clary sage or whatever you fancy).
