Directions

This natural deodorant contains shea butter and coconut oil known for their moisturizing and antimicrobial properties. Its arrowroot, baking soda, and tapioca content helps absorbs excess moisture, while magnesium oil with the essential oils derived from tea tree, lemongrass, and clary sage help eliminate the armpit odor, leaving you feeling fresh and clean.

  1. Melt the beeswax and shea butter in a double boiler.(2 minutes)
  2. Add in the rest of the ingredients one by one, stirring constantly.(5 minutes)
  3. Transfer to a glass jar and set it aside for an hour. Then give it a mix to make sure all of the ingredients are well distributed. Set it aside to set for a few more hours or overnight. Enjoy!

Apply to clean and dry armpits once or twice a day, or as needed. It may take a few days before the body gets used to this natural homemade deodorant. You may experience mild stinging sensation from magnesium oil, which goes away over time.
