Homemade Toothpaste

For the last few weeks, I have been gathering the ingredients and things that I needed to make my own toothpaste! Lately, I have been in search of ways to go natural, green, and living a more simple life. Today I finally had time to make my homemade toothpaste. The recipe I was using only calls for 3 ingredients! I used travel size shampoo containers to store my toothpaste. Other options include a glass jar or a used toothpaste tube. Here is the recipe I used ~

All Natural Toothpaste Recipe

1/4 cup Vegetable Glycerin
1/4 cup Baking Soda
10 to 15 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil (food grade)

Directions: Too easy! Just mix the ingredients together!

The homemade toothpaste looks the same as store bought gel toothpaste but it doesn't foam or bubble up when you use it. It will take some time to get used to it.

Here's another recipe that I just found today. I look forward to trying this recipe out as well!

All Natural Toothpaste Recipe #2

2 tablespoons coconut oil
3 tablespoons baking soda
1/2 small packet of stevia powder
20-25 drops of peppermint oil*

Directions: Mix all ingredients together!

*Add about half of the amount of peppermint oil to start, and test the toothpaste to see how much you prefer.
