How to Make HOMEMADE Deodorant Sticks that Last!
For the longest time I have wanted to attempt this DIY deodorant recipe. My husband and I continue to pay attention to the ingredients we surround ourselves with, especially ones we expose ourselves to everyday!
No offense, but I hope that most of you are wearing deodorant everyday. The trouble is, even when you thing that you are avoiding aluminum, phlatates, and parabens, there might still be health risks lingering in your antiperspirant.

Talk about a real eye-opener!
We knew things needed to change and we needed to try something new.
