Kiera over at A Pretty Penny did a D.I.Y. Natural Deodorant that seems pretty legit. I’ve tried quite a few handmade deodorants, but none of them seem to stick – literally. She might have figured it out with the coconut oil. She gave it a “platinum seal of approval.” I think I may try it.

Also, where did candy corn get its name? It doesn’t really look or taste like corn.
