Deo-Pits, Natural Solid Stick Deodorant Recipe
100% natural ingredients for Pits Sake!
This is a dry-ish feeling deodorant that doesn’t stain clothing. If you want a whiter stick,
use the Kaolin instead of the Bentonite Clay. It works really good and doesn’t feel sticky on the pits.
Ingredients: (makes about 3/2 oz containers or 6 fl. ozs)
1/2 cup Arrowroot powder
1/4 cup melted Shea Butter, Natural
