Wonderful Homemade Deodorant

Healthy, economical & hard working. Coconut oil is antibacterial. Baking soda is an odor fighter. The arrowroot powder or cornstarch helps keep you dry. This has replaced store bought deodorant for me.

6-8 cups unrefined/virgin coconut oil (I buy the gallon bucket from here)
1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup arrowroot powder (or cornstarch)

a few drops of your favorite essential oil, optional (examples: lavendar, tea tree, citrus etc.)

Mix the soda & arrowroot together then mash in the coconut oil. Mix well for several mins by mashing with the back of a spoon. Store in a lidded glass jar as it can melt when the temperature is hot.
