homemade coconut deodorant

I know, I know.
Or beyond odd.
But, my mama is a breast cancer survivor.
The docs told her to use a natural deodorant.
We started researching and realized how much yucky stuff goes into deodorant/antiperspirant.
A. Lot.
Even the natural stuff.
So, I decided to make my own.

And it works!!
All natural and 4 ingredients (or less!), you can't beat that.

Homemade Coconut Deodorant
Make one little tub (or enough for a standard size deodorant tube)
Adapted from several online sources.
1/4 cup arrowroot (or cornstarch)
1/4 cup baking soda
5 tablespoons coconut oil, pure, organic, melted
A few drops rose oil or other essential oil of your choice (optional)

Sift arrowroot and soda together in a small bowl.

Add coconut oil.

Whisk until powders are dissolved and mixture is very smooth.
*Add essential oil(s) now, if using.*

Pour into a small bowl and pinch out with fingertips and rub into skin.
Let set for a bit in the fridge (depending on how hot your house is) and pour/mold into empty deodorant container and use as normal.
