Here is my recipe for home-made toothpaste. Never mind the cost savings, just check out the health benefits from making your own toothpaste with Baking Soda and that should be reason enough to try this! Plus this is so easy and simple you can put it together in a matter of minutes.
1/4 cup of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of peppermint oil (more or less depending on how much flavor you want)
1/4 teaspoon of water (more or less depending on how you like the consistency)
1 packet of Stevia
Mix all the above ingredients in a small bowl. Scoop into a jar or plastic container and secure with a lid. Done!
You can make adjustments on the peppermint oil and water as mentioned above to adjust the flavor and consistency. If you make it too watery, just add more baking soda. Be sure to keep your toothpaste covered with a lid, but if you find it getting dry throughout the week, just add a little water.
I like to make small batches so I have fresh toothpaste every week but feel free to make a larger batch if that is more convenient for you. Just double or triple the recipe; whatever works for you!
