2 tablespoons Cornstarch
2 tablespoons Baking Soda
2 tablespoons Coconut Oil
¼ cup Shea Butter
10-20 drops Tea Tree Oil
various essential oils

Melt shea butter and coconut oil.  Add cornstarch and baking soda to liquid mixing thoroughly.  Add essential oils.  This amount fits pretty well in a 1/2 pint mason jar.

From what I have read:
Baking Soda absorbs odor
Cornstarch/Arrowroot absorbs wetness
Coconut oil is anti-fungal/anti-bacterial
Shea butter softens skin
Tea Tree Oil is anti-fungal
*Also whatever other essential oils you use, I would stay away from the citrus family.  I have heard that they cause problems with the deodorant.
