Bell[e of the Ball] Pepper Soup

Call me crazy (and some of you will, I know) but I think I just might be on to something here. I've just made my first batch of homemade deodorant.
A big thank you to Lindsay at www.PassionateHomemaking.com for inspiring/educating me via this post of hers (watch her video. She seems very nice and watching her make the recipe helps you wrap your mind around the concept of making your own product).
And... I know, I know. I've scoffed too. This is not the first time I've heard about people making their own deodorant. I've always thought "crazy wingnuts!" and let my prejudice/reliance on commercial products take over from there. But this time (again, her video is so cute!) I decided to make a go of it. Cornstarch and baking soda I already had. The jar of organic coconut oil cost me $6 and I used less than 1/4 of the jar for what may be 3 months (?) worth of product.
Admittedly, I've been using less that a week--and it's only 30 degrees outside--but I think this stuff just might work! Natural, inexpensive, and a fabulous conversation starter. ;-)
Don't knock it 'til you've tried it. Or until you smell me. (Please tell me if you smell me! Or... don't. I'm happy not knowing, I guess.)
