Most toothpastes contain Fluoride, and if you didn’t know, this a toxic chemical, and it will only damage your teeth.
But, with homemade toothpaste, you can skip this chemical and have healthy and strong teeth.
Making toothpaste is really easy; it doesn’t require a lot of time, nor money. And since almost all store bought toothpaste contains either Fluoride or sulfates, you can make this natural paste and avoid all the bad stuff.
You will need just a few things:
- Half cup of coconut oil
- 2 or 3 tablespoons of baking soda
- 2 small packets of stevia powder
- About 20 drops of cinnamon or peppermint essential oil
- 10 drops of myrrh extract (this is optional ingredient)
Melt coconut oil and mix other ingredients with it. Stir it well. Semi-hard coconut oil is best stirred with fork or spoon, and if you completely melt it, you will probably have to stir it a few times, because you want to keep the baking soda incorporated.
Put this mixture in a glass jar. If you want, you can put it in a several small jars. Let it cool. Voilà! You made it. Just use the toothbrush to scrape a small amount on it, and brush your teeth. It works like a charm.
