So after an evening of shenanigans and what turned out to be a bit of a harrowing weekend, I’ve been able to kick the wordpress blog to the curb and get this site up with the help of my awesome awesome friend at New Aeon Creative. Just this blog will be here for now, but there will eventually be all sorts of cool stuff some day in the future when my grand machinations come to fruition.
I lost my deodorant.
I had already been cutting back, because there are significant amounts of research being done to try and draw a link between use of products with parabens and aluminum on the armpits and risk of developing breast cancer. While there is no conclusive evidence that such a link exists, the idea that people are questioning it makes me slightly uncomfortable. On top of that, I haven’t really found a good deodorant/antiperspirant…. ever? So the chance to try to make something myself at home for at least as cheap as the “traditional” brands, and at cheaper than the “natural” brands seemed like as good a reason as any to jump in. Also, the deodorant that caught my attention is made completely from things that are already in my kitchen.
Plus, I lost my deodorant.
