Deodorant

Tired of putting crazy chemicals that you cannot even pronounce on your body? Here’s an alternative! All natural… technically edible… deodorant!!!

2 tbls bentonite clay

2 tbls water

1 tbls baking soda

1 tbls coconut oil

essential oils of choice :

  • 10 drops eucalyptus, 20 drops lemongrass
  • 30 drops lavender
  • 15 drops frankincense, 8 drops rose, 7 drops lavender

It’s a super duper simple recipe! In a small bowl, activate the bentonite clay by adding two tablespoons of water and mix until smooth. Next you’re going to add the tablespoon of baking soda… MIX! Then coconut oil… MIX! It should be a really nice whipped consistency. Finally, add essential oils of your preference, mine is frankincense, lavender, and rose. I suggest to use at least one essential oil with antibacterial properties such as tea tree, lavender, or eucalyptus.

To apply put no more than a pea sized amount on your finger and rub in on your armpit.

Charcoal Toothscrub (or Paste)

I’ve heard time and time again that my gifts of toothpaste brightened folk’s smiles. Here’s my gift to you! The recipe to go about making your whole day brighter and your sink black as all get out.

Tooth Scrub

3/4 cups baking soda

3/4 cup calcium bicarbonate

1/4 cup activated charcoal

2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp dried ground turmeric

2 tsp colloidial silver (optional)

1 tsp neem oil (optional)

40 drops peppermint essential oil

Sift together baking soda, calcium bicarbonate, activated charcoal, sea salt, and turmeric. If you’re leaving out the colloidal silver and the neem oil, you’re pretty much done just combine the ingredients until it’s an even dark grey. We’re still going to use the peppermint oil, add those 40 drops and you’re going to notice you’ve got little clumps in your dry mix… SIFT AGAIN!!!! Smash all of the clumps through the sifter and stir your mix again until its smooth and it’s lit! You’re done! If you’re adding the colloidal silver and neem, you’re going to add them at the same time you add the peppermint oil.

If you would prefer toothpaste add 1/4 of coconut oil and a tablespoon of coconut flour then mix into a paste like consistency, adding coconut oil a tablespoon at a time to avoid adding too much.
