Discovering how to make products on your own is beneficial to your health and also fun!
Homemade toothpaste is one of my new favorite things to make!
As we try to cut out all of the harmful chemicals out of our food and products, it becomes a little expensive. I have discovered that coconut oil is my favorite product because it has countless uses. I began with oil pulling and then discovered I can make toothpaste out of coconut oil too!!! It tastes great and the flavor can be modified for everyone in the family. The best part is…it’s COMPLETELY chemical free!!! Give it a try and let me know what you think! Homemade Chemical Free Toothpaste Recipe
- 3 TBSP Coconut Oil (raw and unrefined)
- 3 TBSP Baking Soda
- 2 TSP vegetable glycerin
- Oil drops of your choice (I use about 20 drops of cinnamon or peppermint)
- 2-3 drops of Stevia (can be omitted if no sweetener is wanted, although it tastes much better)
- Mix all ingredients together and store in a glass jar
