Ingredients

  • 2

    Tablespoons of Coconut Oil

  • 2

    Tablespoons of Raw Shea Butter or Cacao Butter

  • 2

    Tablespoons of Arrowroot Powder

  • 2

    Tablespoons of Bentonite Clay

  • 1

    Tablespoons of Magnesium Oil

  • 5-8

    Drops of Melaleuca Essential Oil

  • 5-8

    Drops of Geranium, Lavender, Lemon, Ylang Ylang, or Thyme – these essential oils pair well with Melaleuca and offer a nice fragrance

Directions

DIRECTIONS: 1.Melt the coconut oil and shea butter in a double boiler. I stick the coconut oil and shea butter in a wide-mouth mason jar and put the mason jar in a pot of simmering water. Remove from heat when melted. 2.Mix in the arrowroot and clay into the wet mixture with an immersion blender. I find the immersion blender necessary in properly mixing the oils and solids together and creating “emulsification”. 3.Let cool for about 15 minutes. You may see some liquid rise to the top….that’s ok. We have one more mix! 4.Ever so slowly pour in the magnesium oil while mixing with the immersion blender and mix until the mixture becomes creamy. This means you have properly emulsified the mixture. 5.Add in your essential oils and mix and then blend again. 6.Immediately pour into a small glass jar or a recycled deodorant tube. 7.Allow to cool for a few hours before capping. If you are eager to use it, toss it in the fridge for 20-30 minutes! 8.Slap on a pretty label and you got yourself a nourishing bar of deodorant that works great!
