I began making my own toothpaste a few years ago because the toothpaste on the shelves often contain sweeteners, fluoride, artificial colors or dyes, synthetic flavors, amongst other chemicals. These added ingredients aren’t necessary. In fact, after using my own toothpaste for only a few months, my Dental Hygenist commented on how healthy my teeth looked.
You can make your own Pure Raw Toothpaste using just 3 ingredients:
1 cup Baking Soda
1/2 cup Coconut Oil (more or less)
15 drops Peppermint Essential Oil (more or less to taste)
Melt or slightly soften coconut oil. Then mix all ingredients, stirring well. Place mixture in glass jar and let cool completely. To use: Dip toothbrush in jar to grab a small amount on brush. You could also use a small spoon.
