I innovated on the recipe I saw on Frugally Sustainable and tried out a few weeks ago. That deodorant works beautifully but I am a little sick of the chocolatey smell.
So here is my new recipe.
Lemon Pound Cake (Deoderant)
1 tbsp beeswax
1 tbsp shea butter
1 tbsp coconut oil
(I melt those, then add)
2.5 tbsp arrowroot powder
1 tbsp baking soda
Mix in and stir until toothpasty. I use chopsticks for this.
Add 2 capsules vitamin E oil (but I used primrose oil, just for fun this time).
When cooled down almost completely add 2 capsules of shelf-stable probiotic. I used PB8's.
And I squeezed about 6-8 drops of lemongrass essential oil into the mix. Mix it up.
Then scoop into a nice little pot.
I ADORE the smell of this deodorant and I put it next to the sink in my bathroom with no lid on and smell it whenever I go past.
It smells just like I think the lemon pound cake would smell at Starbucks.
