I’ve had enough of commercial toothpastes! It doesn’t matter what brand I try, they’re always so harsh and the hideous aftertaste lasts forever. Well, straight away, I thought of you – I’d bet my bottom dollar you have a recipe I can use!
Nice to know you’d bet on me! I do indeed have a toothpaste alternative – it’s not actually a toothpaste but a powder and it gives you nice fresh breath for hours afterwards. You can also play around with the flavours until you find your favourite one.
Mix 2 tbsp baking soda with ½ tsp cinnamon and 2 pinches of stevia leaf powder. Put in a jar with a lid and shake well.
Mix 2 tbsp baking soda with 3 drops peppermint essential oil and 2 pinches of stevia leaf powder. Put in a jar with a lid and shake up.
As above, but use 3 drops of lemon essential oil.
This is apparently a great teeth whitener. I used it for a few days and noticed a slight difference, but anyone who is brave enough to do it for longer and gets results, let me know! Mash together 2 ripe strawberries and add 2 tbsp baking soda. Scrub away and store in the fridge.
I love cooking but I always get distracted and burn the bottoms of my pots and pans! If you’re the same, don’t reach for the scouring pad. Just pour in enough water to cover the burnt muck, then place your pot back on the element. Bring it to the boil and watch as it all scrapes off easily using a wooden spoon.
One thing you need on a daily basis is a good body wash. I love this recipe because it does the job and it leaves you smelling divine.
