My store-bought toothpaste contains a cocktail of ingredients I don’t understand let alone pronounce. So I decided to test out a 3-ingredient homemade toothpaste with all natural ingredients.
The base formula is one part coconut oil and one part baking soda. Both coconut oil and baking soda promote whiter teeth and healthier gums. My recipe called for:
6 tbsp coconut oil
6 tbsp baking soda
For flavoring you can add a few drops of essential oil. I went with peppermint which has a refreshing taste. You cane also make your toothpaste a little sweeter by adding Stevia.
This is really as simple as adding the ingredients to a mason jar and stirring until you reach the texture and consistency you like. I use a little spoon to scoop out the paste and apply to my brush.
