Homemade Deodorant

I've been wanting to make deodorant for a long time mashaAllah. The commercial deodorants are bad for us and I have been looking for just the right homemade deodorant with easily assessable materials. 

Here is a simple deodorant that I personally believes works well, it did not stain my shirts, and smells good

5 drops of tea tree oil.. or a cap full

It was simple and it works. I lined our muffin tin with muffin liners and put them in the fridge to solidify alhamdulilah mashaAllah and it came out great!

Alhamdulilah it's good to have some time this morning to write up a blog post. I have been busy with our move and homeschooling alhamdulilah but I'm excited to talk about our latest product review on Love,d cloth diapers.

Why are we using cloth diapers? 
1. Its good for the environment. Hmm 5 children... How much did i contribute to disposables in the landfill? I dont want to know.

2. We are saving money. 5 children, how much did we spend in the past!

3. Toxic free is the way to be. I read theres some cancer causing carcinogens in disposables, do i really want them on tahleels bum?

4. That wet bag makes me happy! Makes travel easier.

5. Another reason to use my washboard. Saving electricity im letting the sun dry them. Good natural whitener

But we really go into more detail in our book here: Diary Of A Cloth Diaper Muslimah Mama

SubhanAllah we were sent a lovely set for Tahleel, which included:
