Make your own deodorant at home

Out of the many years of making bath and body products one thing I had never made was deodorant. I found this nifty recipe online and just love it!! It is easy to make your own all natural deodorant bar.

You can put it in any type of heavy duty plastic mold and pop it out with a pretty design or shape.

1.5 oz. of white beeswax
.5 oz. of cocoa butter
1 oz. of coconut oil
10 drops rosewood essential oil
4 drops lavender essential oil
4 drops coriander essential oil

Melt the beeswax and cocoa butter on low heat, remove from heat and add the coconut oil.  Stir until all melted.  Allow to cool slightly.  Make sure it is still pourable and then add the essential oils.  Stir well and then pour into a mold or deodorant container.

So refreshing to use all natural deodorant and it WORKS!!!

    So when I decided to do a giveaway to celebrate 500 followers on my blog I had no idea that the lovely winner of my soap would be a crafty soap dish maker! I just can't contain the secret anymore, you all have to see these amazingly stylish dishes.

    Introducing BPR DESIGNS you all have to meet her and her fabulously designed soap dishes. What a perfect accessory to my soap :-)

    How can you not want this?

    A lot of people say one of the biggest problems with my soap is that there are so many of them that it is hard to choose , well I think that same thing applies to BPR Designs too. I want them all!!

     Such fabulous colors and designs to go with any bathroom or kitchen.

     Not only are they gorgeous, but they are reasonably priced too, with most of them priced around $13 how can you not want at least 2?
