Lotions and Potions: Chemical Free Toothpaste and Deodorant

Chemical Free Toothpaste


20 gms fine salt

20 gms baking soda

Just enough Glycerine to moisten

1 drop peppermint essential oil

Cosmetic jar


Mix together salt, and then add glycerine and a drop of peppermint oil.

Use just as you would toothpaste.

It whitens teeth, and promotes healthy gums without all those nasty chemicals

Chemical free natural deodorant

The body’s natural function is to perspire to eliminate toxins.  Chemical based deodorants contain aluminum salts that block the pores to stop this natural process.  Odour is caused by bacteria.

Natural deodorants allow your body to eliminate toxins without the odour.


6 tbsp coconut oil

1/4 cup baking soda – sifted

¼ cup arrowroot – corn flour

6 drops of lavender essential oil

2 x 40gms cosmetic pots


Mix all ingredients until smooth and creamy.

Apply a small amount under each arm, after shower.
