Homemade Coconut Oil Deodorant

Simple and easy!

Homemade Coconut Oil Deodorant

1/2 cup virgin coconut oil
1/3 cup arrowroot powder
2 Tablespoons baking soda
3-4 drops of lemon essential oil.

I have the coconut oil softened and then mix in the dry ingredients. I start by adding the baking soda and then slowly add in the arrowroot until the texture is stiff, adding in more arrowroot as necessary. When it is the texture I like, I mix in the essential oils. I mix and store this in a small covered container and store at room temperature. The essential oils I use are Heritage Essential Oils (a non-multi-level-marketing company).
