Homemade Toothpaste

Here’s a cheap and much better alternative to commercial toothpaste.


-5 Tbs baking soda

-4 Tbs coconut oil

-About 10 drops of essential oil. (I used peppermint)

-Container (Make sure it has a lid. Baking soda will absorb smells if left to open air.)

*You can also add a bit of stevia or other natural sweetener if you’re used to a sweeter toothpaste.
