Bring on the STINK!!!

Just wanted the world to know that I will be making my own deodorant this weekend!!! YAY!!! The reason I feel the importance of this information to be shared is because apparently there is a detox period where your body tries to rid itself of the aluminum. During this time you could have some extra stinkiness. I have tried the switch to aluminum and propylene glycol free deodorant before, but I was nursing and poor T and my friend at work staged an intervention. I tried many brands and may have used a small fortune on them. So this time I will try making my own. I will be using a recipe recommended from a cool blog I stumbled upon today. I will be using the amaranth or tapioca starch as opposed to corn starch. First of all because J's allergic and I don't want corn starch in the house. Secondly, it is hard to find corn starch that is for sure non GMO. So here is the link if you are interested in trying this healthier option. Wish me luck!


  1. Thanks for the shout out and I hope you like the deodorant! It really is great. You can also add essential oils to the recipe to make it smell more....umm clean? I actually didn't have a detox when I switched but I wasn't using aluminum deodorant prior either. Now I can wear nothing and nobody is the wiser. :)

  2. That is great to hear!!! I am so excited to try it and I have high hopes since I am no longer nursing. Nursing and pumping would make me sweat so bad lol. I am switching straight from degree so we will see ;)
