Awhile back, I posted my minty fresh homemade toothpaste recipe. While I still use it and think it’s fantastic, I will admit that in the summer it’s hard to use. The coconut oil melts and is very hard to use. So I came up with a new recipe not involving glycerin or coconut oil. It’s much easier, works just as well, and won’t melt on you. It’s actually tooth powder.
Here’s how you make it:
6 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt (I used all natural sea salt and ground it in my coffee grinder)
10 drops peppermint oil (start out with 5 first and then increase if you want)
Put it in a small container you can shake before using. I wet my toothbrush, dip it in, scoop just a little on there, and brush. The mint is so yummy! If you don’t like mint, you can substitute cinnamon essential oil or something else. It works really well, and I’m glad I gave it a try! Here are some other awesome uses for baking soda.
Have you ever made your own toothpaste?
