Living Zero-waste: Homemade Organic Toothpaste

If there is product that I really love ever since I started my zero-waste lifestyle , it’s my homemade organic Toothpaste. Seriously guys, this toothpaste is heaven. I totally adore it. 

Together with my homemade deodorant, this toothpaste is also one of the homemade products that I used when I started my zero-waste journey. That is because some of the ingredients were very easy to find and it is also very easy to create.

One of the perks of going zero-waste and switching to homemade products is that you always have the option to go organic and choose the safest ingredients you can find. That is important because, it cannot be denied that majority of the store-bought toothpastes have harmful chemicals in them. That is why I can absolutely say that I am not going back to my old favorite toothpaste. I am choosing not just a zero-waste but a safer alternative to my dental care!

Before we start, I would like to inform that this recipe is not mine. I got this from a Youtuber named Ashley. (Thank you Ashley!) You can check out her DIY toothpaste video here.

Alright, let’s do this!

Living Zero-waste: Homemade Organic Deodorant

If you decide to live a zero-waste lifestyle, you can never find a free-packaged deodorant from stores. With that, the only option available to you is to either create your own deodorant or look for free-packaged Potassium Alum (Tawas) near you. For me, I obviously chose the first alternative because Tawas has never worked for me in the past.

When I first decided to start my Zero-waste Journey, the first product that I created and used is my homemade deodorant. As I was researching for alternatives for store-bought deodorants, I learned that store-bought deodorants contain Aluminum that clogs the armpit pores. Because of this, our armpit cannot release the sweat, in which is the natural way of the armpit’s detoxification. This may cause Cancer and other illnesses. Moreover, the ingredients of homemade deodorants are very easy to find and these deodorants are also very effective in taking stinkiness away!

Please take note that this recipe is not mine. I got this from a Youtuber named Ashley. (Thank you Ashley!) You can check out her DIY deodorant video here.

Without further adieu, let’s start mixing now!
