Well. I simply CANNOT go to bed without brushing my teeth. It is not a possibility. Ever.
We are staying in the world’s most gorgeous bed and breakfast (a blessing from the Lord, really!) an unbelievable mansion in Chattanooga, and we are literally being spoiled rotten. Until I realize I have no toothpaste, and desperately begin calling downstairs to try and get some. But the evening gentleman has left, and the overnight house person is not answering the phone.
I would even be willing to use toxic toothpaste - this is an emergency.
So I put my very elegant B&B robe on that was on my enormous turned down bed (wasn’t going to make them wash it) and I quietly glided down the 120 year old lushly carpeted steps down to the check in lobby, to beg for toothpaste. Not a soul in sight.
But some really, really good banana blueberry cake. But I digress!
So I came back up and ravaged my overnight bag. Three brand new tubes of Jason’s toothpaste are tucked under my sink RIGHT NOW. None are in my bag. Or Emily’s.
So - what does any self respecting, creative, prudent woman do???? Makes her own! I have tea tree oil and coconut oil - that will work. So I put a few drops of tea tree oil on my toothbrush. Then some coconut oil, then more tea tree and scrubbed away.
Not necessarily the flavor I was looking for - but it worked! Sleep! At last!
The moral of the story. If you bring VCO and tea tree oil, you can fix just about anything on the road!
