When using your homemade Funk Butter recipes, do you experience the problem with the underarms of your shirts smelling funky at the end of the
I haven't had any stains on clothing using the following percentages: (approximate, but pretty close )
Unrefined Shea Butter 33%
Coconut Oil 12%
Baking Soda 35%
Essential oil 3%
I sometimes add a little more or less coconut oil to adjust the spreadability depending on if it's summer or winter.
I finally "made" (if you can call it that, I mixed a couple ingredients) my own deo and it was so easy and is really nice. I knew that coconut oil worked pretty well for me alone, but I wanted to get something like the funk butter consistency. I just googled the ingredients and used the simplest mix I found:
1 T Shea butter
1 T Coconut Oil
1 T Baking Soda
1 T Corn Starch.
A big squirt of aloe to help thicken it up a bit
Lavender EO for fragrance. (I didn't add that)
and mixed it up and put it in my funk butter tin and I love it. Smells like coconut oil and looks like frosting.
Terressentials has just come out with a deodorant. It's the first natural deodorant that ever worked for me. I've only been using it for a few weeks, but so far I'm thrilled!.
Hi I read most of this thread over the weekend and I love it! ... I also mixed up hazelnuts recipe for hommade funk butter and then used it today and I smell great after my workout! I like the homemade funk butter better than the plain coconut oil because it dries powdery and I added lemongrass and orange oil to have a scent. Thanks for posting the recipes!
