Sept 23 - Photo a Day - Before Bedtime
Since learning of the chemical mixes of junk we've been unknowingly washing with and slathing into and onto our bodies, I've been doing my best to eliminate the unhealthy, crappy commercial products and replacing them with organic, cell-building, health-enhancing ones. Some of them, I make.
Homemade toothpaste is one of my concoctions. It's super easy and fully customizable. Starting with a few online recipes, I've added a few extra drops of this (orange and peppermint essential oils), a little less of that (baking soda and salt), and use a raspberry-flavoured magnesium powder and xylitol rather than arrowroot powder and stevia. The base is organic cold-pressed coconut oil. It took a few days to get used to the non-foaming action, but I haven't had a canker sore in months, and my mouth just feels healthier.
For now... nigh' night... sleep tight... don't let the bedbugs bite. And make your tomorrow a Marvelous Monday!
