Homemade deoderant

Made my first batch of homemade deodorant last week.  I had 3 different recipes to try, so I decided to take different ingredients out of each recipe and put them together and make my own recipe.  Wasn't sure if it would pass my husband's test, but it did!  He loves it, which is very awesome!  He has been very reluctant to jump on the green, healthy band wagon.

Homemade Deodorant
1/4 c non aluminum baking powder
1/4 c arrowroot
1 Probiotic capsule
20 drops tea tree essential oil
5 T coconut oil

I actually used 1/2 c baking powder instead of half powder/half arrowroot.  I couldn't for the life of me find my arrowroot.  It turned out awesome  though!  First I put the baking powder and Probiotic capsule in my food processor and mixed it up.  Then I melted my coconut oil and added it to the baking powder and also added the tea tree oil.
 One it was mixed up, I used a rubber spatula and filled our old cleaned out deodorant bottles up!
 Then I put them in the fridge to hang out for awhile while they hardened up.
They are now sitting on the counter top and we are really enjoying them.  My husband says they smell like tropics.  I am just happy he is loving it and that it is working.  I have trouble getting deodorant to work all day, especially when I am working hard and sweating.  But this one does the trick!
