I did it, I made natural toothpaste and it was SO easy. After I finishing using my homemade toothpaste, my teeth felt cleaner than ever! My children also love it and brush their teeth all day with my homemade toothpaste!
NO more buying toothpaste and studying all of the labels to make sure their is nor fluoride added or Sodium Laurel Sulfate or any of the other toxic additives to most store bought toothpastes.
The main ingredients, Baking Soda and Coconut Oil are enough to leave your teeth squeaky clean and super white. Adding essential oils, calcium magnesium, xylitol, stevia powder and ingredients that you may want to add to make your toothpaste even more beneficial to your teeth.
Baking Soda, or bicarbonate of soda, is a gentle alkaline powder that cleans, whitens and also has anti-inflammatory properties. Baking soda will also draw out toxins which makes it a wonderful ingredient for your homemade toothpastes. You can find baking soda at any grocery store and it is cheap.
Coconut Oil has so many great uses. Used here, it balances the abrasiveness of the baking soda. Coconut oil has anti-viral and anti-microbial properties and is nice for inflamed or sensitive gums and teeth.
2 Tbsp. coconut oil
2 Tbps. baking soda
2 Tbsp. calcium magnesium powder (optional)
2 Tbps. xylitol or green stevia powder (optional)
2 tsp. real sea salt (optional)
20 drops essential oil (I use peppermint.)
Mix ingredients in a small glass jar and scoop a bit out on your toothpaste. Brush away!
Cleaner, whiter teeth and So much cheaper!
