This rich, gentle creamy clay cleansing balm is a hybrid between a cleansing balm and a clay bar. It pairs the cleansing powers of emulsifying wax and clay with nourishing oils to leave your skin gently cleansed and lightly hydrated.

I love pumpkin pie. I know lots of people mostly love it as a carrier for whipped cream, but me? I’m all about that filling. That creamy, custardy, spicy orange filling. Bring it on.

I’ve had quite a few requests for a tooth powder recipe (Megan, Stefanie, Christina, Cristina, and Kristen—thanks!). Some referenced a particular store bought product, while others just wanted my take on natural tooth care. This Peppermint Tooth Powder is what I came up with.
I actually devised this before heading to Costa Rica for a month earlier this year. I was trying to fly carry-on only, and one of the best ways to do that is to drop all liquids from your bag. This inspired both my powdered acidic hair rinse and this tooth powder.
