I like to think that we should always have alternatives to just about anything in life. Especially when it comes to our personal hygiene products. I've gradually been trying to go from the conventional products you get ready to go, to making my own substitutions for some of them. It's been kind of a slow process for me but I've made a few what I consider to be good substitutes. I must say though for those of you who are not ready to explore your other options there are some really good products available. I hope to be sharing some of those in future posts. I do always try and find products of course that are GLUTEN FREE , paraben free, and with as many all natural ingredients as possible. It's always a plus too if its organic. So here are some of the items I keep in my bathroom that can be used to brush your teeth.You can alternate between the two of these. Baking soda & Sea Salt. I like to keep these in glass jars readily available.
