I got everything from Whole Foods, except for the baking soda, which obviously came from Kroger.
1/4 cup Arrowroot powder
1/4 cup baking soda
5-6 pinches (whatever that means.... ) of ground up sea salt
4 tablespoons of coconut oil
10 drops of essential oil ( I chose rosemary but I don't think I like it...)
Mix the dry ingredients first and then mix in the coconut and essential oil.
Here's what it looked like while being mixed:
And in the container:
Mine was very runny, (almost like icing for cinnamon rolls or something) but it also says that you can refridgerate it for a more solid feel. I tried that and it was too hard so I decided to use it room temperature. I tried it out this morning and I don't think that I like it. Maybe I will try another batch, but I don't really like putting on deoderant with my fingers. :)
So if I don't make any more deoderant, do you have any idea what I can use arrowroot powder or coconut oil for? I have a lot of both and don't know what to do with it.
This is what the arrowroot bag says, in case that will give you any ideas!!
Should you decide that you want to try to make your own deoderant, I might even give you some of my arrowroot powder and coconut oil!
