Homemade deodorant is one of those projects that I’ve always wanted to try, but I’ve never quite gotten around to it. I like the idea of using natural, body-friendly ingredients—especially since several of my loved ones have struggled with breast cancer, and I’d rather avoid applying potentially harmful chemicals in that area—but, somehow, I’d gotten it into my head that homemade deodorant was really hard to make, so I never even gave it a chance. Turns out, I was totally wrong. Making homemade deodorant is actually pretty darn easy.
