It’s been a slow slide. It started with making more food from scratch.
Then I tried to make handsoap from scratch. (It was the consistency of snot, by the way.)
Then I switched my facial cleanser to olive and castor oil. (LOVE IT.)
I learned to make homemade bread.
I made some homemade dishwasher detergent. (FAIL.)
And some laundry detergent. (Success.)
I started milling my own flour.
This latest thing really makes me feel like I’m descending (or maybe ascending?) into hippie-dom.
I made homemade deoderant. For my pits. And I like it.
You can find the recipe here. The only change I made was to substitute peppermint extract for the lime oil. Because it’s what I had.
Coconut oil, corn starch, baking soda, and essential oil (er, extract).
Super easy to make. And at the end of the day, my underarms still smelled sweet like coconut.
That’s better than Degree ever did!
Now it’s your turn! What natural / whole food / homemade thing should I try next? What have you tried – failures and/or successes?
