Anonymous asked:hi Rosie, I am certain you've probably answered this before and I am so sorry I can't find it. would it be at all possible for you to link to a post on what you use for hygiene? (toothpaste, deodorant, etc.) I completely understand if not!! xx
Here’s a link to a previously answered question :) I list all my face, lips, body, hair and household product brands! Will add some stuff tho..
[ dental hygiene ]
Coconut oil is antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal! Studies have shown that coconut oil destroys the bacteria that can cause tooth decay. The other primary ingredient in this toothpaste is baking soda. Baking soda is a very mild abrasive which aids in cleaning and whitening teeth, and restoring pH balance.
Coconut Oil and Baking Soda Toothpaste
2 tablespoons Coconut Oil
2 tablespoons Baking Soda
10 drops of Peppermint oil (optional)
*Can make a larger or smaller batch depending on how long you would like it to last and what size container you’re storing it in.
1. Mix baking soda and coconut oil in a small container, until it forms a paste like consistency
2. Add several drops of peppermint oil and mix (*peppermint is optional)
• bi carb soda // toothpaste..
Take a pinch of baking soda and put it into a small glass or small bowl.
Add a small amount of pure water to the bowl and mix it into the baking soda. The solution should be slightly runny as you don’t want too many of the granules present. Dip your toothbrush in to get some of the solution on the brush.
• coconut oil // oil pulling..
I put about 1/2tbsp of oil in my mouth and melt it then “pull” it through my teeth and swishing around my mouth (I only do this for about 3 minutes but recommend is 10-20 minutes, you work your way up to it!)
I gently brush my teeth afterwards and they feel so clean, healthy and my breath is fresh.

• bi carb soda // instead of chemicals a natural dish washing stain remover, makes glass look new, acts as a deodorizer
I have a glass of baking soda and Earths Choice washing liquid by the kitchen sink - that’s all I need!
