Conor and I are always finding new ways to take our self care routines to new heights. In recent years, we’ve both found a lot of joy in making our own natural products with simple ingredients, finding the process fun and empowering. After playing around with various tooth powders and pastes, we found one that we enjoyed and decided to create something like it, but even better.

Below is the recipe that we have been folowing and loving for the last year, complete with links underneath to purchase any of the items you may need if you have a desire to make it for yourself. I’ve also included a link to the toothpaste that inspired the recipe.
