Classic homemade deodorant
Instructions
  1. Select a container that you would like to use for your deodorant. (Small jelly jars work great.)
  2. Using a fork, Mix together the baking soda and the arrowroot powder.
  3. Add in the coconut oil and mix until smooth.
  4. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil if you would like to customize the scent or add additional benefits (ex. Lavender oil smells great and provides further anti-bacterial properties).
  5. Let the mixture set for a few minutes until it becomes slightly firm.
Recipe Notes

Feel free to play around with the amount of each ingredient. Additional arrowroot powder will make it thicker.  Some people are sensitive to baking soda so you can lesson the amount if you discover some skin irritation.  Have fun with the essential oil.  My husband prefers it plain, I like peppermint or lavender, one of my daughters likes tangerine and the other is good with whatever I make for her.
