Since I started to make two years ago my own clean & organic toothpaste I look on the regular one as soap which might seem weird to some but I imagine it is a matter of habit & this has become mine.
I’ve wanted to give you the recipe for quite a while but I had a lot left and no photos from the last batch.

It seems providence decided otherwise when the jar broke ­čśë so here goes the recipe…

Ingredients
———-

1. 6 Tbsp. (heaped) organic Arrowroot or rice flour (cheaper)
2. 5 tsp. Baking soda
3. 4 tsp. (flat) organic virgin Coconut oil or Shea butter if that’s what you have at home, it’s cheaper too (I quote Wikipedia “In some African countries such as Benin, Shea butter is used for cooking oil”)
4. 1/2 to 1 tsp. peppermint oil (I like it strongly flavored so I put 42 drops)
5. 6 Tbsp. Glycerin

Method
——

1. Put all the ingredients in a small bowl, mix until smooth
2. Put in a clean glass or plastic container & label it with date (in my experience it never got bad)

Let me know if you try it I would love to know about it!

Jeff Smith — The effects of genetically modified foods


This is an amazing video I found from a blogger I follow. It has information I never was aware of, it brought the whole matter to light. Next time I’ll be shopping, I surely will make sure not to include GM foods in my basket ­čÖé

Over the last 20 years Jeff Smith has worked with over 30 scientists to collect all of the known health risks of genetically modified foods. Studies have produced thousands of sick, sterile and dead laboratory animals; thousands of people linking toxic and allergic type reactions to these foods and damage to virtually every system in the laboratory animals studied. Despite this alarming evidence 70% of the foods in our supermarkets have genetically modified organisms in them.
