My make it or break it day was when it was over 90 degrees in Florida. I worked out in my garden in the morning, drove to the landfill, shoveled 6 bins full of mulch then came home and shoveled it all into my garden beds. It passed the test!!!
The recipe for this deodorant is very simple, you use equal parts of coconut oil (solid), baking soda and arrowroot powder (you can also use cornstarch). If you want to try it before making a big batch you can use 2 tablespoons of each. Put the coconut oil in a bowl and mix in the baking soda and arrowroot powder until well well mixed.
Several sites show putting this mix into old deodorant containers after they have been washed. Other sites say to put the mixture into a container and apply it with your fingers. I tried filling an old deodorant container and did not find that it worked well. In Florida I guess you would have to keep it in the fridge. It was too soft for me to roll out of the container so I just took a pea size and rub it under each arm. It doesn’t think bother me as much as I thought it would.
Coconut oil does not have to be refrigerated and has a shelf life of 2 years. How great is that.
