Homemade Recipes

Feel free to substitute ingredients; add essential oils, fragrance oils, herbs, cosmetic clays, fruit powders and seeds . . . the possibilities are endless!

I also have a few recipes for home detoxifying, freshening, and cleaning using very simple yet very effective natural ingredients.



Homemade Remineralizing Toothpaste

1/3 cup Bentonite Clay
1/3-2/3 cup Boiling Water
1 tbs Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
1/4 tsp Himalayan Pink Sea Salt
10-15 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
3 drops Cinnamon Essential Oil
2 drops Clove Essential Oil
Liquid Stevia, to taste (optional)

Pour boiling water over coconut oil and stir until melted.  Add salt, essential oils, stevia, and bentonite clay.  Blend with a hand mixer, or wooden spoon, until blended thoroughly.  You can add more clay or water to get the consistency you want.  Store in covered glass jar at room temperature.

NOTE:  Always use a glass bowl when mixing your toothpaste.  When wet, bentonite clay will draw particles from inside a metal bowl and toxins out of a plastic bowl.  Make sure your mixer has stainless steel blades, or better yet, use a wooden spoon.
