What's that smell?

Hopefully it's not me thanks to this homemade antiperspirant/deodorant.

Homemade Antiperspirant-Deodorant

2 TBS shea butter
3 TBS coconut oil 
3 TBS baking soda
2 TBS arrowroot powder
essential oils of your choosing (I used Young Living's Purification and added extra citronella, about 20 drops or just until it smells like you want it)
empty deodorant containers (you can reuse old ones, buy them off amazon, or simply store in another type of container)

 Melt the shea butter and coconut oil in a pan on the stove, or in a double boiler.  When just melted, remove from heat and stir in the other ingredients.  Pour into desired containers and chill to set.  That's it, you're done! Oh wait, go clean out that bowl.

Some scent combos I want to try - lavender patchouli, ginger lemongrass, spearmint lime (because who doesn't want a mojito scented armpit?)
