A list of zero waste bathroom essentials


  • Hemp oil for my face
  • Coconut oil to remove makeup (I use a cotton towel)
  • Coffee grounds as a scrub (works for the body too)
  • Tea tree essential oil for skin problems (with plastic lid, but lasts forever)



Oral hygiene:

  • Homemade mouthwash (tee tree essential oil + baking soda + distilled water)
  • Bamboo toothbrush
  • Bulk toothpaste tabs




  • Bar of olive oil soap



  • Coconut oil as lotion
  • Soap bar for body and soap bar for hands
  • Safety razor and blades, electric epilator
  • Homemade deodorant (coconut oil + baking soda + arrowroot powder)
  • Menstrual cup

  1. This is a great list. I’m curious about the toothpaste tabs. How do you use it? Just put it in your mouth then push it around with the toothbrush? I may have to look into these as my foray into making toothpaste didn’t go very well. Thanks for sharing on the Waste Less Wednesday Blog Hop.

      Thank you, so sweet! The toothpaste tab melts as soon as it is in the mouth… I also have some failed DIY toothpaste projects behind me 🙂
