These soap petals are also good for a romantic bath.  Simply toss a few in to the bath water, and they will float.  As the soap dissolves, the fragrance is released into the bath water.   How romantic would this be for Valentine's Day or date night? They also look and smell pretty in a dish on the counter in a guest bathroom.  Keep reading to learn how to make soap petals for disposable soaps or guest soaps.

 Learn how to make a coconut oil deodorant recipe with baking soda or arrowroot powder, zinc oxide, and essential oils.  This natural deodorant recipe with beeswax is easy to make, and it helps keep you smelling fresh all day long.   Natural deodorant is a relatively new journey for me.  I grew up using traditional deodorants and tried a few brands, but I didn't like how it worked. But now I have a teenaged daughter, and I want to start her off with healthier choices.  So last spring seemed like a good time to start since I was going to be stuck at home anyway. I normally buy my natural deodorant, but this coconut oil deodorant recipe was in the January 2021 Simply Earth essential oil recipe box, so I gave it a shot. This box actually has two recipes that you'll love: the BO Be Gone Natural Deodorant and BO Emergency Back Up Roll On.   I'll share both with you today because they really complement each other well.
