Here's what DIY Toothpaste will cover:

  • A Short Introduction to Oral Health - defining what oral health is and the three simple components of caring for your teeth and gums. 
  • Toxic Toothpaste Ingredients - toothpaste as we know it is a cosmetic product, not a healthcare or cleanliness product. Everything we’ve been taught to expect toothpastes to do is achieved using toxic ingredients that have nothing to do with oral health. 
  • Safe, Non-toxic Ingredients For Cleaning Your Teeth - learn about the ingredients we're going to use for our homemade toothpaste replacements. I’ll describe exactly what they do and how they support oral health.
  • Recipes - the alternatives to toothpaste that my family and I use, from super-simple brushing with just one or a few ingredients, to more appealing mixes for those who are transitioning away from conventional toothpastes. I'll also share optional additional ingredients, along with links to other recipes and useful websites. 
  • A complete listing of Resources - all the resources provided in this Workshop, in one download for easy reference.

There will be more Workshops to come

This Workshop is part of a larger Series called Bathroom Basics, which is being built one Workshop at a time. You can read more about the Bathroom Basics Workshop Series, here.


What will the Bathroom Basics Workshop Series cover?

Initially, the Workshop topics may include (but may not be limited to): 

This Workshop, DIY Toothpaste - how to replace commercial toothpastes with a few simple, non-toxic ingredients that are far more effective at keeping your teeth and gums healthy than the expensive gick in the tubes

DIY Shampoo and Hair Conditioner - how to save a small fortune in hair care products, wash your hair less often,  produce less waste, and have cleaner, healthier hair

Basic Herbal First Aide - how to use the weeds in your backyard to reduce your reliance on the pharmaceutical section of the bathroom aisle (keep in mind I am not a herbalist; this is just what has worked for my family)

Basic Soap - how to make very simple soaps so you can avoid the fragrances and other unnecessary additives in off-the-shelf soaps

You can read more about the Bathroom Basics Workshop Series, here.

You might not believe how simple and inexpensive this is

The last thing you need in your life is more complexity. Right? 

This is not about replacing bathroom aisle dependence with rigorous or time-consuming processes. These recipes are SIMPLE.

You can find information and workshops all over the internet with more complicated recipes, using more expensive, luxurious ingredients. 

Now I have nothing against luxurious self-care. (You totally deserve it!)

HoweverI also have a fair idea how overwhelming it might feel to be contemplating adding One. More. Thing. to the list of things you already have on your plate.  

If your days are anything like mine, by the time you take care of the necessities there’s scant time left over for worrying about how luxuriant your bathroom routine is.

For me, if it gets us clean, keeps us healthy, reduces our use of plastics, and keeps the water running down our drain pipes clean, that's SO much better than when I was buying the gick in the tubes and bottles.

Just to not be reliant on the supermarket anymore, and to save all that money I used to spend on bathroom products, that's luxurious!

Hi, I'm Kate

I started making my own basic bathroom products over 13 years ago when my first child was a baby.

When I learned what was in the supermarket versions of the products in my bathroom, and how simple and economical it was to make my own alternatives, making my own became something I simply couldn't afford not to do.

Now, as a full-time homeschooling parent, homemaker, gardener, farmer, and writer, making the basic bathroom necessities I'll show you in this series of Workshops is still a regular part of my routine.

*How come DIY Toothpaste is free? Will it be free forever?

At this point in time I'm unsure if I'll be continuing to offer this Workshop and future workshops and courses for free, if I'll be charging for them, and if I do charge for them, how my pricing system will work.

(I'll be writing more on this topic soon; if you're a subscriber, you'll receive more info on this when it becomes available.)
