I tried a zero waste dental routine 🦷 🧛🏻♀️ First the toothpaste, the recipe I used is as follows:
In a airtight glass jar I added: 2 tbsp home extracted coconut oil, 2-3 tsp sodium bicarbonate (baking soda powder) , 1 tbsp raw honey 🐝, 10- 15 drops of @mynykaa peppermint essential oil.
This recipe lasts for a little over a week for me.
Feel free to mess around with this depending on the consistency you like, the honey is to reduce the salty taste of the baking soda and the essential oil is to add that minty freshness 🌿 🌼My review is that this toothpaste takes some getting used to, it doesn’t lather and it is a little salty, making it seem like a regular salt tooth scrub! I wish it were a little less salty and a little more minty, might try to fix that in the next batch.
Second, the mouthwash, the recipe:
In an #upcycled glass bottle I added: 350ml Purified water with fresh mint leaves (left it for 2 hours), 1 tbsp baking soda powder, 15-20 drops peppermint essential oil. This lasted me for a week exactly.
Again, customise this recipe to your liking! 🌼My review is that I absolutely LOVED this, it was so minty and cool ❄️ it made the whole zero waste experience really nice!
Zero waste DIYs are super fun and worth giving a try! These recipes accompanied by my @bambooindia toothbrush and steel tongue cleaner make my dental routine a zero waste one to be proud of 🙆🏽♀️ #notsponsored
