1/2 cup cocoa butter
1 cup coconut oil
9 oz. beeswax

when melted add:
1 Tbsp tea tree oil
2 tbsp lavender e.o.
2 tbsp castor oil
2 tbsp thyme e.o
2 tbsp rosemary e.o
1 cup baking soda

Mix well and pour into deodorant containers.


Cream Deodorant
1 T coconut oil
1 T shea butter
15 drops Essential Oil
1 t cornstarch
2 t baking soda
*Melt-n-mix, put in a pot and apply with fingertips.

I personally, have been using 5 drops tea tree oil (it kills bateria, which causes the odor!), 5 drops orange essential oil, and 10 drops lavendar oil to this,

Bust magazine Dec/Jan 2009 by Amy Karol.
IN a double boiler (I use a glass measuring cup in a pot of simmering water), melt 3 Tbsp organic (if possible) unrefined shea butter, 3 Tbsp baking soda, 2 tbsp arrowroot powder or corstartch, 2 Tbsp organic unrefined cocoa butter, and 2 vitamin E oil gel caps (puncture and squeeze otu the oil) as an optional natural preservative. Give it a good stir. When liquefied, remove the mixture from heat, pour into a 1/4 pint jar, and stir in 10-20 drops of your favorite essential oil (I used ylang-ylang and sweet orange). Place in the fridge for a few hours until solid. Then take it out, and let it come to room temperature (don't store it in teh refrigerator). The texture will be somewhere beteween a firm cream and a soft solid. To use, scoop out a pea-size amount with your fingers and apply to your armpit. Be gentle, especially after shaving. A slightly wet armpit makes for easier spreading. This 1/4 pint jar will give you at least three odor-free months.
