Lately it seems like everyone is on the coconut oil bandwagon and I guess I've just joined them? Making the toothpaste was pretty easy. Here's what I used:
- 2 Tbsp coconut oil
- 2 Tbsp baking soda
- 15 drops Young Living peppermint essential oil
I tried a little taste on my tongue, to see what to expect when I use it tomorrow, and it seems good. We'll see how I enjoy using it. If I like it, I'll be pretty stoked because honestly I was spending WAY too much on eco crunchy toothpastes and have been for years much to Mr Faye's chagrin!
If I like it, I might dabble in using a remineralization product in the paste to help fight cavities as well as maybe (not sure yet) peroxyde (obviously high quality, safe for teeth stuff) to whiten my teeth a bit.
I'll keep you posted. Anyone else out there diy toothpaste? Any tips you'd add to my mix?
