I live on a sustainable family farm and work for a humanitarian aid organization. My goal is to have a simple beautiful life. The Quaker acronym SPICE (simplicity, peace, integrity, community, and equality) guides my life.
Last week I tried a new recipe to continue my quest for sustainable living. I made my own toothpaste! It was very easy and tasted pretty much like toothpaste. As the original recipe might be a bit abrasive, the next time I will experiment by reducing the amount of baking soda. Below is a photo of the end product, as well as the original recipe:
5 Tbsp baking soda
4 Tbsp coconut oil
10 drops of essential oil (peppermint
You can also add a bit of stevia or other natural sweetener if you're used to sweeter toothpaste.
