1 tablespoon deodorized cocoa butter
4 tablespoons shea butter
1.5 tablespoons beeswax
4 teaspoons arrowroot powder
(may substitute kaolin or bentonite clay)
10 drops of favorite essential oil or fragrance oil
(tea tree, lavender, or any other that you prefer)
**All ingredients and deodorant tubes can be found on our website www.pinemeadows.net or in our Utah County store.
Measure the beeswax, deodorized cocoa butter, and shea butter into a microwave safe container.
Microwave on high for approximately 1 - 3 minutes or until the mixture is mostly melted. Stir to make sure everything is melted down and liquid. Next, stir in your arrowroot powder or clay until the mixture is smooth. Add in your essential oil or fragrance oil and stir.
Wait for your mixture to cool down, stirring periodically. When your deodorant mixture has cooled down but is still drippy, pour into your deodorant container.
Allow it to completely cool down before attempting to use.
