Grandma's Body & Foot Deodorants: Kitchen Cosmetics|
Herbal Deodorant Powder
2 parts powdered sandalwood (for fragrance and anti-microbal properties)
1 part powdered white oak bark (an astringent)
1 part powdered lovage root (for fragrance)
Pulverize herbs in a blender or food processor until they become a very fine powder. Transfer powder into a clean, dry iron skillet and very lightly pan-roast to set resins and scents. Fill muslin draw-string bags with the powdered herbs, or use handkerchiefs tied with a string or ribbon. Pat bags under your arms or on feet.

Tip / Remedy @ Home Submitted by Linda Hellifield, Cardiff, United Kingdom
4 ounces Cornstarch
2 ounces Baking Soda
1 ounces liquid Chlorophyll
2 ounces Vodka
2 ounces Distilled Water
8 ounces BeesWax
10-15 drops of Honeysuckle, Rose, Coriander or essential Oil of your choice.
Mix all ingredients except wax and chorophyll in a bowl, stir thoroughly.
Melt wax in top of a double boiler over very low heat, remove from heat. Add the other ingredients and blend well.
If the wax thickens too much to be workable, heat again. As the mixture begins to cool, but before it hardens, add the liquid clorophyll and essential oils.
Pour into moulds. Let harden. Remove from moulds. Store in a tightly closed container away from heat to avoid shrinkage.
