Hey everyone! 😀
I’ll be gone almost all day, so you get an early post. 🙂
I’m going to share with you the recipe that I always use for toothpaste. Maybe I should mention that the first few times the taste is pretty strong and… interesting. But, seriously, after the third time it’s really good! Anyways, here we go!
You will need:
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 2-3 T baking soda
- 3 small packets of Stevia powder (I use Truvia, because it is a bit better for you)
- 15-20 drops of peppermint essential oil (or any other flavor)
First, melt or slightly soften your coconut oil. Mix in the other ingredients and stir it well. (If you’re using melted coconut oil, then stir it until it is cooled). Put the mixture into a small glass. Unless where you’re storing it is hot and humid, it should harden within two hours. (It is ok if it does not harden due to heat, just dip your toothbrush in the glass). When you are ready to put some of your homemade toothpaste on your toothbrush, just use a spoon to scoop one or two pea-sized scoops of toothpaste on your brush.
If your skin tends to be sensitive, then you should probably back off on the essential oil. Just put 5-10 drops instead. You can mess around with the recipe until you get it just right for you.
This toothpaste is a lot better for you than what you would get at the store. There is no fluoride, which can cause brain damage. It also can potentially lead to a wide variety of health problems such as Dementia, Arthritis, Bone Cancer, increased tumor and cancer rate, and the list goes on. Fluoride does not only effect you orally, but it effects other tissues in your body as well. (The list of health problems are from mercola.com). As well as there not being fluoride, there are plenty of other chemicals that are not in this toothpaste that you would find in the ones at the store.
Pray for me as I go to the beach with a dear friend whom I haven’t seen in years! I’m so excited. ;D Have a blessed day!
