And the expensive “natural” alternatives to regular deodorant are just not cutting it. And to be honest I was never that exited about the effectiveness of the regular stuff anyway.
So, a few months ago when I saw Kitchen Stewardship’s post on her homemade deodorant I was intrigued, not really for the frugalness of it, but because I wanted it to work.
I took the plunge a few days ago and mixed up her recipe of virgin coconut oil (since I recently bought a gallon of the stuff), corn starch and baking soda, and you know what?… It’s awesome. Not only is it cheap but it actually works. Not just pretty good- but really good. It has a nice coconut scent, keeps me dry and smelling nice all day. Granted, it is winter and I don’t know how it will hold up in the summer but I wasn’t pleased with my results of the other deodorants in the winter or summer.

I did not price it out- but I can’t imagine a tube costing more than $0.50- and maybe less. But again, that is not really what I care about.. I mostly care that I smell great 🙂
Try it friends, you just might like it, too.
