How To Make Your Own Organic Toothpaste

What’s your body absorbing every time you brush with regular toothpaste? Well, I’ll tell you. Artificial flavourings, sodium lauryl sulfates (SLS), parabens, colourings, fluoride, glycerin and more.

Fluoride is not great but SLS is even worse. It’s been linked to alot of health issues, including cancer. So, you can buy one of the many brands of organic toothpaste or make your own – using coconut oil which is loaded with antibacterial properties. Here are two toothpaste recipes…

Coconut oil and baking soda toothpaste recipe

This recipe will make just a little over one cup of toothpaste. What’s nice about it is the fact that you can store it in a jar in the fridge for up to four months. Also, it can keep in your medicine cabinet at room temperature for up to 14 days.

Toothpaste Ingredients:

1/2 cup bentonite clay
1/8 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tsp stevia (optional)
4 drops peppermint essential oil

Mix the salt and clay in a bowl. Then add the water and mix well. Mix in the rest of ingredients until it forms a paste. Store it in a jar with a lid. When you want to use it, spoon some onto your toothbrush. You can dampen the paste by putting your brush under some gently running water and brush as usual.
