Home-made Toothpaste

This toothpaste is so easy to make, tastes great and leaves my teeth and mouth feeling really clean. It may just be wishful thinking, but I think my teeth are whiter also. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t  made this sooner!

I mixed 3 tablespoons of bicarbonate of soda (use an aluminium free brand) with approximately 3 tablespoons of coconut oil, a few drops of peppermint essential oil, a few drops of orange essential oil and one sachet of raw stevia (this is optional). The mixture was quite hard initially, so I added more oil, one teaspoon at a time until it became a soft paste.

This amount fitted into a small mason jar and lasted about one month. It was so cheap and easy to make, and with only 5 natural ingredients (versus the 19 ingredients in a normal tube of toothpaste – most of which are unpronounceable!), I won’t be buying off the shelf again.
