I’ve made one with lavender and frankincense eo, and one with rose fo.
Congratulations on finding a recipe that works for you. I think 50% is what I started out with as well (or close to it, maybe slightly more.) I am curious about the sunflower oil. Does it leave any oily residue on your clothing at all? If so, and you have access to PS80, it's a good stain remover that will release the oil from clothing very well.
In case you're still looking for babassu.. have you tried dragonspice.de? Their European shipping is €12,80. Obviously that's a lot if you only want babassu, but they have a bunch of other products and I quite like them (I get my EO's and butters from them)
I have tried this recipe among several other recipes for deodorant, it worked great, I shared it only with my family as I found that the % from the supplier shouldn't exceed 30%. I also like Irishlass recipe of mixing babassu oil with the MgOH but I use it for myself, my teenagers didn't like the idea of applying it by hand.
So... Is the recipe you quoted above a solid? I’m not fond of using my hand either...
yes, it's solid.
I use 41.7% Babassu, 30% Magnesium Hydroxide, Btms 25, Carnauba Wax, Illipe Butter, Cetyl Alcohol, Zinc Ricinoleate, Zinc Oxide, and Fragrance. It held up very well during my summer market without leaking fragrance. Sorry, I did not give up all my percentages but I have been working on my formula for almost 2 yrs. I personally use it un-fragranced and it works well.
does the carnuba wax have a better glide / hardening than beeswax or do you use it for more of a vegan reason? I just got a beeswax derivative ewax that’s supposed to be smoother in formulations. I’m so excited to try magnesium hydroxide and bassabu that I got yesterday. I also didn’t realize bassabu is solid when cold lol
I find the carnuba does not get sticky like beeswax
Thanks! That makes sense.
