DIY Idea # 2 (Make your own Deodorant) It works !!

Make your own deodorant with ingredients you have at home. Start with 1 1/2 cups Shea butter, 1/2 cup coconut oil ,1/5 cup arrow root powder. 1/5 cup baking soda 1/2 cup cornstarch and the essential oil fragrance of your choice. Slowly melt the shea butter over low heat. To much heat will cause the shea butter to become grainy and will strip it of its nutrients. While it still has big chunks in the pan, take shea butter off and whip it with a hand mixer or by hand until it becomes creamy. Add the other ingredients, saving the oil for last. Whip until smooth and creamy then add your essential oil. Pour mixture into an old deodorant container (you’ll need 2) or to a tupperware container with a lid. Let set and there you have it !! This really works and I use it every day. It is safer than regular deodorant that has cancer causing aluminum and I can make it unique by adding my favorite fragrance. Let me know how it works for you !!
