Natural Deodorant

Mix together:
3 T coconut oil
2 T baking soda
2 T arrowroot or cornstarch
essential oils, like tea tree oil, are optional

After a shower, when completely dry -- rub a small amount all around
(any excess can go on your toes -- keeps them smooth and smelling good, too!).

"Blue  here is a shell for you
Inside you'll hear a sigh
A foggy lullaby
There is your song from me"
