I tried a recipe for homemade deoderant. It included baking soda, coconut oil, cornstarch, essential oils, and I think that's all. Cooked it on the stove, then used this container to hold it. I can say that it worked out fine for the week or so that I used it. Unfortunately, shenanigans were underway and it had to be disposed of. Some of the hazards of crafting with little children around, even I cannot anticipate.
