*Update: This makes for the most excellent deodorant! I use it daily!
I want to share the recipe for our homemade toothpaste. If you are a natural health enthusiast, you've probably read about the negative effects of saccharin and fluoride.
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.
Mix all ingredients together in a container until it becomes a thick paste.
And there's your toothpaste.
