All Natural 12-Hour Deodorant Paste

This is an all natural deodorant paste that goes on clear and works for a good 12 hours! It takes less than 10 minutes to make and will last a very long time.

DIY Natural Deodorant Recipe:

1/4 Cup Unrefined Raw Shea Butter (http://amzn.to/2gTBiPW)
6 TBSP Coconut Oil (http://amzn.to/2fXc4OI)
3 TBSP Beeswax Pellets (http://amzn.to/2gZuKOr)
10 TBSP Baking Soda
2 TBSP Arrowroot Powder/Cornstarch/Tapioca Starch
40 Drops Lavender Oil (http://amzn.to/2gzRoQw)
10 Drops Tea Tree Oil (http://amzn.to/2gTE1sM)

Melt Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and Beeswax in double boiler. Once melted, add baking soda and arrowroot and blend. Remove from heat and add essential oils. Allow to cool slightly before pouring into container. Will harden into a paste.

*Test sensitivity before using liberally (many people develop a rash from backing soda)
