    I have used this and it works.

    3 tbsp virgin coconut oil 2 tbsp shea butter 3 tbsp baking soda 2 tbsp cornstarch 5 drops essential oil (lavender, orange, etc.)Make a double boiler by placing a half-pint glass jar in the middle of a small pot of water. Bring water to a simmer. Add coconut oil and shea butter to the jar and let melt. Turn off the heat, add baking soda and cornstarch, and stir until completely smooth. Mix in the essential oil of your choice. Let cool.

    Hi Rebecca, hope this helps you,


    • 1/3 cup coconut oil
    • 1/4 cup baking soda
    • 1/4 cup arrowroot starch
    • 6 to 10 drops of essential oils, if desired


    1. Mix baking soda and arrowroot.
    2. Mash in coconut oil until blended. Add essential oils, if desired.
    3. Place the mixture in an empty glass jar.
    4. To use, just warm a small amount between your fingers until it turns into liquid. Apply to your pits.

    When making your own natural deodorant, feel free to experiment with different bases, powders, and oils. Shea butter, cocoa butter, and coconut oil work well as bases, but you don’t have to have one if you prefer an all-powder formula. Just combine equal parts baking soda and arrowroot and then add your preferred oils and shake to mix. Store in an empty spice jar with a shaker top.
