Homemade Probiotic Deodrant

Homemade Probiotic Deodorant-1 tbsp. cocoa butter
-1 tbsp. coconut oil
-1 tbsp. shea butter
-1 tbsp. beeswax
-2 1/2 tbsp. arrowroot powder
-1 tbsp. baking soda
-1/4 tsp. vitamin E oil (as a preservative)
-15 drops essential oil of your choice
-2 or 3 capsules powdered probiotics
Melt cocoa butter, coconut oil, shea butter, and beeswax over low heat.

Add arrowroot powder and baking soda. Whisk with chopsticks until all powders are dissolved and combined. Remove pot from heat. Add vitamin E oil and essential oils at this time. Allow mixture to cool in pan. Once it is cooled and the consistency of pudding, open capsules of probiotics and add powder to mixture. Stir with spatula quickly to combine.

Add mixture to clean, used deodorant container. Place in refrigerator to cool and harden. After this, product may be stored on counter (Note: Using a shelf stable probiotic such as Bio-Kult will prevent the need for refrigeration). This recipe will fill container and last for 3-4 months. Remember...a little goes a long way!
