My own creamy homemade deodorant has been nothing but effective, from the very first try-out. It hasn’t failed me since, despite being put to the test by a multitude of challenging (in the sweaty kind of way) situations. So no more 1 or 2 oz jars – this potion is worth having around, it doesn’t go bad quickly (if at all?), is used daily and I wanted to have enough. Time for a monster batch.
