DIY: Homemade Toothpaste with Coconut Oil

December 11th, 2013 | Tina | Events and Activities, Food and Drink, General, Health | No Comments »

Making your own toothpaste is very easy and saves you from having to use chemically produced toothpaste with glycerin and sodium flouride.

Glycerin gives toothpaste a nice creamy texture and coats the teeth for “protection”, but at the same time it also stops re-enamalization which essentially means that cavities can’t self-heal.

Sodium flouride is a by-product of aluminum manufacturing that can also be found in rat poisons and industrial pesticides).

Here is the recipe for making your own healthy toothpaste:

ingredients

6 tbsp coconut oil
6 tbsp baking soda
25 drops essential peppermint oil
1 tsp stevia (or more if you like it sweeter)

Directions:

1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Whip it really well to give it a light creamy texture.

2. Pour into a small jar and seal it up until ready to use.

I use a small stick to dip into the toothpaste and spread nicely onto the toothbrush. You can also just dip the toothbrush into the jar.

Enjoy
