sweating the good stuff!

so as I was putting things away I noticed (actually O noticed), I forgot to put on deodorant.... then I noticed, it was gone! arrgg.... but I guess I shouldn't complain, I don't make it very often- and
when I do- it doesn't take long.

6 Tbsp Coconut oil ( you can soften it to measure... just warm in a pot of water on low)

1/4 cup baking soda

1/4 cup arrowroot powder or cornstarch

**I also add about 5-10 drops of essential oils (Lavender is my favorite.... and citrus is another.)

Combine equal portions of baking soda & arrowroot powder. Then slowly add coconut oil and work it in with a spoon until it maintains the substance you desire. It should be about the same texture as the store bought kind, solid but able to be applied easily. You can either scoop this into your old dispensers or place in a small container with lid and apply with fingers with each use. After applying the product, you can just rub the remains into your hands as a lotion.
