This morning I will once again be a part of Oklahoma’s Fox23 lovely morning show called, “Great Day, Green Country“. Things you should know:
1. I will be nervous.
2. I will wonder if there are boogers in my nose.
3. I hope I don’t sweat-too much.
Unbeknownst to their noses (what are they-smelling impaired?), this nervous and sweaty girl is coming back to share her Homemade Peppermint Mouthwash, Toothpaste and Lip Balm recipes on LIVE television. LIVE. No screw-ups, Rebekah.
Maybe the peppermint scent from my homemade products will snuff out the scent from my sweaty pits–but any of you that do Crossfit with me will know that would be a miracle.
Here’s the video from earlier this morning! Again, don’t judge…I laugh when I get nervous….
I will be sharing a quick and easy recipe for Tasty, Homemade Toothpaste that costs about $.25 to make. Compare that to the usual $4 tube I buy and I am singing the praises of DIY. Not only is it cheaper, but it’s healthier. There are no unnecessary ingredients and the baking soda and hydrogen peroxide really do the trick.
I’ll also show you how to make your very own Peppermint Mouthwash. It’s refreshing, cheap ($.25 compared to $6 a bottle) and easy to make. Plus, it will leave your mouth feeling clean and ready to get close to that special someone.
Last but not least, I will share the recipe for creating (in large quantities) your own Simple, Organic Lip Balm. I make enough to last the year with one simple recipe. And by making my own, I spend around $.25 a tube on the ingredients and the container, rather than Burt’s Bees that costs me around $3.

I hope you have enjoyed these recipes! It may seem overwhelming at first to rid your home of toxins and store-bought everything. And maybe you don’t want to make these products, but would like the benefits of non-toxic products in your home without going broke. I have found some simple solutions to replace the things that I cannot make/don’t want to make myself by purchasing them from a non-toxic green company online. Without directly endorsing them, if you are interested in knowing more, Feel free to email me with questions.
