Why make your own deodorant?
1)No stain: Ladies' antiperspirant can stain your clothes yellow. This deodorant helps me to smell good and keep my whites pretty.
2) Avoid Aluminium: Store bought antiperspirants can have aluminium in them. A higher aluminium count in breast tissue (which is near where you apply deodorant) is associated with breast cancer, according to PubMed.com. Note: this is not a proven cause and effect, but a correlation. Also, they haven't proven the high aluminium counts come from antiperspirants. But why not avoid aluminium?
3) Cheap and Easy: This recipe has only 3 fairly cheap ingredients and easy directions.
4) Smells Good: This recipe smells like coconut. Mmmm.
