On the first day of spring, a sunny, warm day, we went to the park and saw blossoms.
We saw tight little buds that will soon be blossoms.
One of us climbed this twisty tree and then could not get down without some parental guidance.
Best of all, everywhere we looked we saw green, lovely, wonderful, not dead brown, not dirty snow, but green!
Anyway, I've sort of been waiting for the moment when running out of deodorant would coincide with The Simple Man finally agreeing to trying homemade deodorant and that time was now. For awhile I'd been eyeing recipes similar to this one, but I was undecided. Then, when Crunchy Chicken tried a version of it and said it worked, I thought I might as well go ahead. Plus I'm copying her great idea of using an old deodorant container, thus giving it more legitimacy in the eyes of The Simple Man. I changed it to suit me, since I pretty much can't stand cocoa butter's smell and it's not easy to find it deodorized. Here's what I used:
3 Tbsp. shea butter
2 Tbsp. coconut oil
2 Tbsp. corn starch
3 Tbsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. glycerin
Vetivert essential oil
