Keep in mind that this deodorant will melt in hot weather. It still works but I prefer to mix it well if it melts and place it in the refrigerator until firm.
Feel free to play around with the amount of each ingredient. Additional arrowroot powder will make it thicker. Some people are sensitive to baking soda so you can lesson the amount if you discover some skin irritation. Have fun with the essential oil. My husband prefers it plain, I like peppermint or lavender, one of my daughters likes tangerine and the other is good with whatever I make for her.
