DIY Toothpaste

After a recent dentist experience, I was told to make my own toothpaste! Don’t buy it!

What you’ll need:

-2 tablespoons of coconut oil

-1 tablespoon of baking soda

-A couple of drops of an essential oil (peppermint, clove, lemon, etc.)

How to:

  1. Combine the coconut oil, baking soda, and essential oil and mix
  2. Stir until there are no clumps!

Toothpaste has additional sugar, which aids in tooth decay. Also, the excess plastic from the tube is unnecessary!

Chef Colton also wants to mention, peppermint essential oil has many different uses! If you have leftover oil, you can use it to ward off house spiders by mixing it with water and spraying it in the corners of your home!
