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

Equal parts

Baking Soda and Cornstarch (arrowroot if you have it)
add Coconut Oil until it reaches a consistency you like
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! I then put them in ziploc bags , labeled them and put them in the freezer or fridge, Only because with the weather getting warmer, coconut oil will turn back to a liquid. I have no problems getting mine out the fridge and putting it back in its bag after showers.

"“Women and fragrance have been made dear to my affections, but prayer was made the sweetness of my eyes.”-- Prophet Muhammad SalAllahu alayhi wa salaam

  1. MashaAllah tabarakaAllah mashaAllah mashaAllah mashaAllah :)
    These are all the words I can use here! YOU are everythin I ever wanted to be before marriage, and here I am 3 years after marriage with none of my plans n dreams comin to real life!
    I wanted to recycle, read Quran with hubby, bake my own bread, homeschool my baby, and so so much more, but done none of that!
    Why? Dunno! Maybe cuz of my husband's tough long workin hours, my baby getting sick all the time the first year and a half of her life, relocating to a place I have always disliked, so many reasons, but still, I cud have at least done a few of what I wnated.. Gosh, mashaAllah girl, you ROCK! May Allah bless you n yours with all the bliss in this life and the next, and I love you with all my heart dearie <3
    P.s. Can u guide me to at least raise my daughter in more of an islamic way? She's almost 2 years all, what programs do I let her watch? What books? What games? Sighs, I'm in desperate need of help here..

SubhanAllah I know how you feel, there is always test, bumps in the road that may seem like it is stopping us or blocking us from doing what we want, but we all have to learn to not let those test derail us, keep going on the path we intend and use our test as a means to strengthen us.

  3. Hi There!

    I really enjoy this blog. I love the homemade natural beauty and cleaning product ideas!

    I have a homemaking blog myself over at modernishhomemaker.com. I am starting a new blog link up this coming Tuesday (6/17/13) and one of the things I hoped to have was women of different faiths and backgrounds who share an interest in homemaking. So many of the blog link ups I know of either focus purely on crafting or cooking, or are dominated by posts from conservative evangelical women (not that there is anything wrong with that) - but I hope my blog link up can bring some more diversity to the homemaking blog party scene. If you have any new posts, or even old posts you'd like to share - I'd love to see you at the link up next Tuesday!

    Thanks for your time!

The Passing Of A Prince

One month later...  If you would have told me, that I would be eventually blogging as a widow, I would have probably said that I couldn't imagine it!

Well here I am, writing as a widow. My husband (may Allah have mercy on him, and grant him jannah ameen ameen) passed away last month, December 20th, 2016, from complications from his condition.  My whole life changed and I am learning to heal and process this tremendous loss with our six children.

I met my husband in 2006 mashaAllah, and as I like to tell people, I started this adventure 10 yrs ago when I met a Prince from Kings County (Brooklyn NYC) married him, and became his princess alhamdulilah. When we first met, I felt like "wow this handsome guy, I cant believe he is even giving me the time of day." Lord knows I am thankful for all the time of our days, our road trips, and adventures.

I think of an old status message I shared on facebook
" I've dedicated ten years of my heart to this loveable adventurous g…

5 Ways To Love Your Husband MORE

I had to blow the dust off the blog tonight, as I only write when I am feeling inspired. SubhanAllah, tonight feels like a good night to share a few thoughts on the blog.
How can you, love your husband more?


1.) Speak words that will uplift his spirit. I remember when I would be feeling nervous, and anxious about some event, and my husband (may Allah have mercy on him, ameen) would say encouraging words, that made me feel like the most confident woman in the world. We have the ability to be that voice of encouragement in our mates lives. What mountains we cannot move, when our spouse speaks life into our being! Through out the day, speak to your mate in a way that will help them be better. 
2.) Put your love into action: Yes you can say "I love you" all day long, but adding to that by doing loving gestures, show and prove what we feel inside. Surprising our spouse by writing a love note, or sending a loving text, adds a little more joy to their days. In a world where there …

As salamu alaykum To The Struggling Wife

As salamu alaykum to The Struggling wife....





You are the heart of the home. You are his support, his cheerleader, and he needs you to be by his side. Do you know how important you are to him and to your home?

You are worth more than you know. It may not be said often, but without you... Life would be a little more difficult.

I know you're struggling right now to be a better wife and I know you want to do better. Don't put too much pressure on yourself.

Keep asking Allah to guide you in becoming a better wife. Realize that you have a lot of worth and your husband knows it, he married you, he knew you were the woman who could make his life better.

Write down what you can do to make your marriage better and focus on that daily. He put you with this man, that you love, that you decided to marry. You made a commitment, and you said "I am his committed helper." so keep going! Yes it's not always easy, sometimes you want to leave... But you are a strong, praying woman. …
