1. Melt shea butter and coconut oil in a double boiler over medium heat until barely melted.
2. Remove from heat and add baking soda and arrowroot (If you don’t have arrowroot, use more baking soda or just omit). Mix well!

The antiperspirant finger-pointing began more than 40 years ago with new discoveries about Alzheimer’s, progressive dementia that affects more than five million Americans.
Antiperspirants use compounds—such as aluminum chloride, aluminum chlorohydrate, and aluminum zirconium—to form a temporary sweat duct plug.
Researchers back then found that exposure to aluminum caused rabbits’ brains to develop nerve cell damage— thought to be a precursor to Alzheimer’s at the time—and long-term dialysis patients with high levels of the metal developed dementia.
