ilovecandles24: I am concern about oil on my clothes though. I perspire a lot.
Lavenderrose73: Oh cool, that's good to know! What would you do, go half and half with the coconut oil and butter in place of the coconut oil portion?
Lavenderrose73: Apple Cider Vinegar? Oh, I have that. Figured I'd use it to make homemade bug spray, although I have yet to do so.
Lavenderrose73: Maybe so. Right now I have a deodorant I found at Elliot's that's all that garbage-free (no hops either; I made sure of that after what my niece said to my aunt!) and I figured I can try this another time. Glad it works for you, though.
kINKYISME: mAYBE THEY scrubbed too hard while taking a bath, shaved or got waxed and the skin is broken. Lemons are also good natural odor defenders
Nick Dron: great job will try this.
SkeyeU: Your a good mamma!
Sugga Bugga: Thank you soooooo much. I have all of the ingredients and am going to make this tonight night, I have not used regular deodorant for over 25 years and could only use baking soda but it darkened my under arm...what a sweet alternative...thanks again!
SuperBuetiful: I'm gonna use Shea butter instead of coconut oil.
Chris Dugar: Try placing all the ingredients into a ziplock bag, it makes it's easier to clean up. When it is mixed, cut a corner of the bag and pipe it into your container. :)
Jadine Dahmer: Hi. I have some coconut oil but I kind of melted in my cupboard from the summer heat. Anyone know how I can make it harder, like in the video?
Alex Chavez: I made mine but its not solid its kind of melting did i do something wrong
Karen Dindia: It can sting after shaving.
Chi88Chi88: The most common mistake made in measuring powder ingredients is to dip the measuring cup into the flour instead of lightly spooning flour into the measuring cup. This can result in up to 25% more flour than the recipe calls for.
wjgw09: I would like to make this but I'm allergic to coconut is there a substitute.
Kelechi Asika: How would you spray it onto yourself once it's completed tho?
Chris Johnson: My wife made this the other day and we really like it. Host of this video is very pretty.
keandria carter: hi u did great nd my bday is march 13 nd im 12 now in the year 2013
OBEY THEE: My 20 year old deodorant recipe is: baking soda, 3%hydrogen peroxide, distilled water, salt, and coconut oil. The idea is to slap it under your arm, leave for 2-3 minutes, rinse-off, and that should last the entire day, or half the day if its 95+ degrees!!
ASbslLoves: Try reading the label on Rainbow (shop) kingfisher flouride free toothpaste or use baking soda, I've heard that works (taste? hmmm?!!)
Imagine Pixies: I just ran out of deodorant and my deodorant can get expensive so this video helped a ton!! This stuff really works seeing how baking soda is a natural deodorizer that's why some brands of cat litter have baking soda:)))
Lavenderrose73: Well, I understand you can get away with that if you use only the coconut oil and nothing else.
By the way, interesting name you've got there. I remembered someone (not on YT, though) whose username was "Haydens Wifey" or something like that. Our common ground was our amorous crushes on Hayden Christensen from Star Wars. Lol
denzelswifey86: she probably just shaved then appiled the deodrant..
cherls15: Thanks for the video.I make this too but I first place the coconut oil container in hot water for about 10 mins so it melts and becomes liquid.It makes the mixing part a lot easier.Then it becomes a gooey runny paste then solidifies back within a half hour or so.Very quick to do it this way.I think that natural deodorant works a lot better than normal store deodorants.My armpits don't itch or sweat and even when I get panicked very quickly.Do you know if coconut oil clogs pores at all?
Deja xoxoscruff: This is awesome
SPARKWISDOM: Hi, Lavender. Great question! It hasn't been an issue with us and we've been using this for 3 years now. I have heard people say the baking soda is strong, I'd say use less if that is the case. Or I have other videos where you can simply use alcohol or apple cider vinegar.
Lavenderrose73: Someone on a different video also making deodorant with the same things had a comment that someone's underarms really burned from the baking soda and had a friend who's a nurse tell her that baking soda can be caustic if left on the body. Has this not been an issue with you? I wonder if she just added too much baking soda or something. Maybe baking soda is too alkaline and that's why it caused that problem, not sure.
Bercola1: I know this video is three years old but I love it, you and your daughter reminds me so much of my daughter and I. I'm currently off work now due to an injury so I've been making everything and it is just great especially when you make stuff that works, ive done the laundry detergent, thanks to you deodorant that even my hubby enjoys, hand soap i'm having a royal blast thanks for such a great video.
SPARKWISDOM: Hi everyone! Thank you so much for your comments and for watching this video! You rock! I also have a playlist that has four different variations and recipes that you can use so be creative! Remember it's very easy to make your own and make adjustments as needed for your body. God bless you!
vintagegreentea: Just made my first batch. Thank you guys!
SPARKWISDOM: It kept well under my sink in FL :)
mardillie: so i have to keep this deo in the fridge so it will not melt?
SPARKWISDOM: You can use your choice of essential oils and shea butter really stabilizes the recipe. Use that or cocoa butter :)
SPARKWISDOM: I really enjoy making it. :)
SPARKWISDOM: Yes it will melt.
TheDoll300: can you use Oregon essential oil instead of the tea tree oil? also will the coconut oil base melt in the summer heat? if you use Shea butter will it hold a little better in the heat?
Figaro Newton: Just curious does it melt at all when it gets humid?
spiritartman: This is great!!!! I make my own Laundry concentrate comes out to .23 cents per gallon - America needs to go back to basics before hyper Inflation hits in the next few years.
miloheart: I only use coconut oil as my deodorant but it still works! i must say, I should try this too!
Deshawn Montgomery: Do you have a recipe for homemade toothpaste?
Robert N Melissa Fayyazi: Great video.. Lovely mother, lovely daughter. Hugs

SPARKWISDOM: Use arrowroot powder or less baking soda. You have to make it work for you.
Jessica Doster: I started on Monday and my left arm is irritated and red! Painful. I don't want to go back to srore brought deodorant. I need help
st3218: You should try using Arrowroot Powder as your starch instead of Cornstarch, it's not as irritating if you have sensitive skin (I do) and it doesn't contain GMO's. Also, for everyone else, make sure you're using Baking Soda and not Baking Powder, as the latter one tends to have aluminum in it, unless you specifically buy "aluminum free" baking powder. I had to start making this because the commercially made deodorant causes me to break out and itch like crazy!
