just whipped me up a batch of homemade deodorant...haven't tried it yet but have read tons of reviews for this recipe on various websites. should work fine. this is something i've been wanting to try for several months but the recipes i'd found previously said to use coconut oil not EVOO. i don't have any coconut oil and it's like $10 for a little container and i just kept making excuses about getting out and buying it. so today i found this recipe and i do have EVOO on hand so i decided to try this first. it smells awesome. i only used lavendar oil in mine as i don't have tea tree oil. oh well.
and i will mention that i found this recipe on my new favorite blog. i mean, seriously, this ranks right up there with younghouselove.com in my world. i found it this morning and i'm really enjoying looking over it. this lady had a home birth and check out this cool post on her fridge contents. i have so much to learn from her.
i've already been thinking about coming up with ways to reduce our usage of paper products (TP, baby wipes, kleenex, paper towels, etc.) to save $ but she gives some great practical suggestions on how to do that.
