I know I have increased my fish intake, but something smells

Oh wait my Dove antiperspirant deodorant stinks.  Well it actually smells really nice and does a wonderful job, but the ingredients stink.  I am an AVID ARBONNE user and even though Arbonne has a deodorant out, I am not a fan of mint…actually really don’t like mint smell at all.  So my friend Jane told me about a deodorant she was making and I was all over that like….well like me on bacon.

So I cleaned out a deodorant container and got to work on the recipe.  So easy and I have been using it for a week now and I really love it.


I know you can read but I will list it out so you can copy and paste 😉

1/2 cup arrowroot flour

1/2 cup baking soda

5 drops each of your fav oils.  (tea tree, eucalyptus, cinnamon is what I used, Jane used the first two and Lavender…I smelt it it was awesome!)  Mine is pretty good too except I want to lick my underarms *blush*

approx 5 tbsp coconut oil melted

Mix all together and either put into an old deodorant container, or even make into a ball and put in a baggie and rub on.

Since doing this I have ordered some empty container and a few more oils from  I got ocean breeze and a gentlemen’s scent.  Yes I am making a tube for each member of my family.

WHY?  Well just too many people close to me are being diagnosed with breast cancer and I am going to do everything I can do for me and my girls.

As for the fish comment…that is for another post!!!!!

Guess who is going to Texas for the PALEOFX EVENT???

*SQUEEEEEEEEEE!*  yes…that would be me.  That is my excitement squeal. 

I got my first Paleo Magazine delivered and opened it up to the PaleoFX advertisement and wondered if anyone from the Toronto Paleo group was going and sure enough found a group looking for a 4th person!  I am very excited, but there were conditions under me going.  I have to pre-cook several freezer meals for my family before I left.  DOABLE!

Anyway that trip will happen March 26th and be back April 1st.  I have been just sort of maintaining with eating, cooking up favorites and right now I am making Valentine Shortbread cookies…so hopefully they work out. 

My new love are green drinks.  Fresh organic (when I can) kale, avocados, ginger, lemon, raw local honey, carrots etc…all blended up with some water and drink!  I call this my 1st Breakfast because I drink this and then I make my 2nd Breakfast of high quality animal fats!  I am reading two books right now  “Why women need fat” and “The vegetarian myth”  both are excellent!!!  The vegetarian myth has me all motivated to plant a huge garden so my friend Jane has offered her farmland and so her and I and the 5 kids between us will be farming some awesome veggies this summer.  Very excited.  Did you know that Plants eat MEAT!  LOL  yep they do!  On that note…here is this morning’s Green Drink.  Yum!
