DIY Toothpaste

As we are trying to live a life that reduces waste, we have begun exploring new ways that we can reduce these things. We have started making our own products to avoid unnecessary packaging as well as harsh chemicals.

This is the recipe we have for our eco-friendly toothpaste! (leaves your breath with a wonderfully fresh scent, cleans plaque off teeth and is a natural whitening technique!)

It is simple

– 5 Drops Peppermint Oil OR Lemon (we use peppermint)
– 5 Cloves
– 2 tbsp Sage
– 1/2 tbsp of “Green Clay Powder”
– 2 tbsp of Baking Soda

Mix products into a blender and blend until powder.
To use apply water onto toothbrush and dip into powder.

Another added benefit of making your own toothpaste is it is a money saver! You do not think about the money spent on toothpaste as it is an essential of everyday life, but with this recipe will last you 5x longer than using 1 tube of toothpaste!

**PSA: If you are used to normal toothpaste it may seem strange at first, we thought so as well, but now we love it even more than regular toothpaste!
