Homemade Natural Deodorant Update

So...I woke up stink-free this morning! That certainly is a rare thing in the summertime. I'm overjoyed! Our upstairs gets incredibly warm in summer...the heat just goes up there and stays up there (nice in winter, not so nice in summer). As you can imagine, the coconut oil used to make this deodorant (coconut oil, cornstarch and baking soda) becomes liquidy and separated in the heat. I found a fix for that.
I found this little bottle that I had left over from something in the past and put some of the well-mixed deodorant in there. Then, I put the jar in the refrigerator for safe keeping (and it'll probably then take on a more solid form, too...but putting deodorant on in the kitchen...kind of weirds me out).
Now, I can just shake this little bottle, squeeze a pea size out into each hand and apply on the pits! Awesome! :) I love being so inventive...and stink-free!

Oh! And I forgot to mention...any leftover product on my hand...I can just rub the rest into my hands like lotion...or on my little pirate's sweaty stinky feet...I wonder if that would work! :)
