Over medium-low heat, melt the coconut oil and shea butter together and whisk in the remaining ingredients until smooth and uniform. Cool slightly and whisk in the essential oil of your choice, if desired.Pour into a wide-mouthed container or a clean and empty deodorant container and smooth the top. Allow to cool in the fridge until solid before use. In the summer, store it in the fridge if your house stays so warm that the coconut oil won’t stay solid.
Most store-bought deodorant is loaded with toxic chemicals, such as aluminum (linked to alzheimers) and other chemicals linked to breast cancer and various diseases. SO, this DIY deodorant saves the bank and your health!!
