  • Make your own toothpaste and shampoo / conditioner


    Have you ever wanted to make your own toothpaste and hair shampoo?

    Recipes for easy, safe alternatives

    Toothpaste:

    • Organic Coconut Oil (3 tbsp)
    • Baking Soda - aluminium free (1 -2 tsp)
    • Himalyan or Celtic Salt - to provide many minerals
    • + / -   Ground organic Egg Shells (1 tsp) to provide more minerals (remove the inner lining, boil for 3 - 5 minutes, drain the water, allow to dry then grind - coffee grinder is perfect)
    • I used to add Essential Oils like Peppermint (10 drops), Myhrr (2 drops) or TeaTree (8 drops) but now prefer not to as they alter the natural microbiome of the mouth -    but you might like to

    Hair Shampoo:

        Baking Soda (2 tsp aluminium free) and fill bottle with clean Water

                (preferably chlorine and fluoride free) - thats it

        Can add a couple of drops of Essential Oil -

                  Lemon, Orange or your choice

    Hair Conditioner:

        Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (approx 3 tbsp) and fill bottle with Water.

               Removes tangles, and no your hair does not smell of vinegar

          


    Simple, inexpensive, no nasty chemicals
