Over the last five years, I have gradually moved from conventional beauty products to organic and home-made cosmetics.
I will soon post on how to green a bathroom but today I would like to share my homemade toothpowder recipe. One very good news, it’s healthier, cheaper and more eco-friendly than toothpastes that you can buy in shops.
- 20 g. of clay (white or green)
- 20 g. of baking soda (to withen the teeth)
- 2 drops of tea tree oil (antibacterial)
- 2 drops of peppermint or 4 drops of lemon essential oil (fragrance)
In a small jar/plastic jar, mix the clay and baking soda. Add the drops of essential oils and mix again.
Wet your toothbrush before using your toohpowder. Et voila!
I use it along my homemade mouthwash and find it very good. It’s also extremely cheap – 20g. of clay (approx. €0,45 / 500g = €9); 20g of baking soda ( €0,16 / €500g = €4); a few drops of essential oils – and allows you to reduce your wastes.
Note: A very good documentary on fluoridation in our water is available here.
Do you know more toothpaste/powder recipes?
