5 DIY Everyday Personal Care Products

2. Toothpaste

Toothpaste is another product that generally contains a lot of chemicals and can be beneficial to switch to a more natural option. Again, many of these natural toothpastes that are available can be quite expensive. Why not make your own? There are many recipes on the web, but here is one that I found to be economical and works great! Here is the recipe: (from diynatural.com)

  •  2/3 cup baking soda
  • 1 tsp. fine sea salt (optional – direct application of the minerals in sea salt is great for teeth, but can be left out if the taste is too salty)
  • 1 – 2 tsp. peppermint extract or 10-15 drops peppermint essential oil (or add your favorite flavor – spearmint, orange, etc.)
  • Filtered water (add to desired consistency)
