Not my picture, but mine looks the same! Blue deodorant case and all :-))
This is my second batch of homemade deodorant. This one I made differently because I wanted it to be more solid in the tube. Coconut oil has a tendency to melt at 77 degrees and in the summer in KY it doesn’t take long to hit that. So as I neared the end of my sometimes solid deodorant stick I went to the local farmers market and got a stick of beeswax!
4 TB Coconut Oil
2 TB Beeswax
2 TB Baking Soda
1 TB Corn Starch
Essential Oils (optional for scent)
In a small pot on LOW heat melt the coconut oil and beeswax (add your scent now if you choose to use one. I used 25 drops). Once its melted add in the baking soda and corn starch. Mix well and remove from heat. Pour into an old deodorant stick and leave to sit for 24 hrs. Pop the lid on and your ready to go!
1.Take 2 Cups Oats and blend to fine powder (or as many cups as you want to store)
2. Pour powder into storage contaner for later.
3. Pour 4oz of Breastmilk (or formula) into sauce pan.
4. Add 1/4 Cup oat powder to sauce pan.
5. Wisk on medium heat for 10 minutes (Keep wisking to keep from clumbing)
6. Remove from heat and let cool (it will be thicker than when you started)
After your freshly homemade baby oat cereal is made you can pour it into a small bowl and break out the baby spoon!
This recipie I found online and is intended for babies between 4-6 months of age, or later. Your baby should be able to hold ther head well, sit with support, no longer have the urge to push things out of their mouth with their tounge, be interested in eating, and be able to make eye contact and smile. I found many different suggest when you do start new foods. We intend on feeding the same thing once every 4 days and will add a new food each month until we hit 8 months, takng our time and spacing things out. Afterall she is getting all the nutrition she needs already, so for now its just learning to eat. 🙂
A hand MUST accompany each spoonful!
Oh ya Im happy!
