This deodorant is awesome and smells great! Quick question: is it supposed to be more liquidy or creamy? My mixture was at a smooth consistency but then melted in the jar later on.

Made it two days ago and it's super effective!!! Although, even tho I followed the recipe, it came out too liquidy, so I added a ton more baking soda and arrowroot flour. No natural deodorant was strong enough for me, but this did the trick. I used lavender essential oil. Happy. Thanks so much!

Today, people from across the city flock to the farm in order to shop local organic foods, to find plants and tools needed for their organic garden, to make friends, and to learn at one of the farm’s many workshops.

Post image for Scenes From The Office

This was my first week back in the office after being in Costa Rica for 10 days. It’s always a challenge to get back into the routine after being in another country. One day you’re there, the next it’s back to reality. But, it was nice to return home and welcome our new blog intern, Madisyn! She helped me out this week and took these pictures :). Check out what was going on around the office! Read more »
