Make-Your-Own Deodorant Recipe

Someone recently shared a recipe and I thought I'd add it in here and try it soon. Credits are below the recipe.

I've made this and it works even through an hour of boot camp!
5 tablespoons or 4 oz (organic virgin) coconut oil: a great natural antibacterial. If you notice the deodorant is at all flaky on the skin, you may add more coconut oil as needed.
4 tablespoons baking soda: neutralizes pH and body odor.
3 tablespoons arrowroot or organic cornstarch: absorbs perspiration.
2 tablespoons bentonite clay: adds extra wetness protection by whisking away sweat, and pulls toxins from skin.
5 drops tea tree oil (optional but highly suggested): a potent antibacterial.
