Healthy DIY Toothpaste Recipe
- ½ cup coconut oil
- 4-6 tablespoons of baking soda
- 1 teaspoon of powdered xylitol or stevia
- 15-20 drops of essential oils
If needed, warm the coconut oil until it becomes soft, but not liquid. Add the baking soda, essential oils and your sweetener of choice. Stir well until ingredients are well incorporated, then whip the mixture until it becomes light and creamy. Store in a shallow, resealable jar. Ideal essential oils to consider are peppermint, cinnamon, orange, and myrrh. Trace Mineral drops are also a healthy choice to help remineralize the teeth. Consider chocolate toothpaste too! Add crushed cacao nibs, which also help to remineralize the teeth and remove the biofilm in the mouth¹. Who knew? Yes, chocolate toothpaste can be a good thing.
