Make Your Own Deodorant On The Cheap

Unless you’re the type of person who always ends up sitting next to me on airplanes, deodorant is a personal hygiene staple that can’t be ignored. While not particularly expensive, expert penny-pinchers and do-it-yourself-ers will be happy to learn that Mennen and Old Spice aren’t the only ones who know how to make magic stuff that makes you smell better.

Sustainable Personal Finance walks you through the steps of creating your not-so-speedy sticks.

You’ll need baking soda, arrowroot or corn starch, organic coconut oil or canola oil, as well as an old deodorant container. Click on the source link to read about the rest of the process. If it doesn’t work out well for you, say hi on our next flight together.
