There are so many simple, easy switches you can make to your routine to include more natural products. This can cut down on your exposure to harmful ingredients, and many of these switches include more eco-friendly, sustainable goods.
#Toothpowder is something I started using over a year ago. Traditional toothpaste is overpowering to me, the taste is strong, the mint stays in your mouth forever and ruins anything you try to eat after brushing, and it often irritates sensitive teeth and gums. There's also growing concern about fluoride, which is a neurotoxin that is not vital to preventing cavities. Millions of people use fluoride toothpaste and still have cavities, and there are people without cavities who do not use any fluoride. The key here is good dental hygiene, and a good diet to provide minerals to your teeth while cutting back on foods that damage them. Also, I can't stand the way it foams in my mouth and to me, toothpaste is just a strange feeling/tasting product.
So I made my own. I love it because it gently cleans teeth and freshens breath without foaming, it doesn't irritate my gums, and it has a subtle peppermint-clove flavor that doesn't overpower me. It contains minerals, including calcium, to help strengthen and remineralize teeth, and has natural whitening abilities from the charcoal.
I also switched from a basic plastic toothbrush to one made of bamboo, which is a much more sustainable material, is biodegradable, and the last brand I used (Humble Brush) donated a #toothbrush to a child in need for every toothbrush purchased. This brand pictured here doesn't donate, but it does have soft bristles that easily get all the way back to my wisdom teeth. This is a simple switch I made in my own routine, and just one example of many of the easy swaps you can make to help support your health and that of the earth 🌎
