Add the coconut oil to the jar of herbs and then fill the jar the rest of the way with sweet almond oil.
Cover the jar and put in a cool and dark place to infuse for 2-6 weeks (the longer the better).
Strain out the herbal material with a fine mesh sieve when ready to use.
Put the infused oil and beeswax into the top container of a double boiler, and stir as the beeswax melts.
Once the beeswax has completely melted, add the shea butter and stir until it dissolves.
Remove the mixture from the double boiler and stir in the essential oils, then stir in the arrowroot powder and baking soda. Keep stirring for a minute or two to thoroughly combine. The mixture will begin to thicken slightly.
Pour the mixture into empty deodorant containers or half circle molds. Let the deodorant set up for a few hours before using.
Tip: you can make a double boiler with a smaller pot, bowl, or a glass Pyrex measuring cup over an inch or so of simmering water. If you use glass Pyrex, put something in the bottom of the pot that it can rest on, such as a canning jar lid.
