making your own deodorant

ok, a real stinker of a subject.

i am trying to come up with a successful combo that will allow me to shed the use of heavy metals as applied from commercial deodorant to my armpits.

it's all in the experimental stages but given that the safety of deodorants is not firmly proven, i've finally decided to try and minimize any future exposure and limit health risks.

i plan on using some shea butter i picked up with baking soda and some essential oils, maybe some alcohol and see what happens.

here are a few recipes i came across for making your own deodorant - haven't tried them yet but likely will!

3 tbsp vodka
3 tbsp distilled water
2 drops tea tree oil
2 drops thyme oil
2 drops eucalyptus oil - put all in a spray bottle

1 cp baking soda
2 drops bois de rose oil
1 tbsp rosewood herb

we'll see...i mean smell...
