Ingredients

Unrefined Coconut Oil

Baking Soda

Arrowroot Powder

Instructions

Combine equal parts of coconut oil, baking soda, and arrowroot powder depending on the size jar you choose. Mix everything together and use your fingers to apply it. 

How It Works

Coconut oil is a great moisturizer for all skin types and is known to improve skin conditions. It's antibacterial and anti-fungal, which will help keep the area clean and reduce irritation. 

Baking soda contains antibacterial, antimicrobial properties, and absorbs odor, making it an awesome cleanser and deodorizer for the underarm area.

Arrowroot powder is a plant starch that'll thicken the mixture. Use an much or as little of this to achieve the texture you like!

For scented deodorant, add 5-10 drops of essential oil. Be sure to test the oil on a small area of your skin first to be sure it won't cause irritation.
