I made it finally- I've had the recipe for months. My husband and I have been using Uncle Tom's brand of natural toothpaste for a year or so now. So, we are used to the less sweet more baking soda-y taste. To anyone who isn't used to it, it will be quite a change. That toothpaste has gone up and can cost close to $4 per tube. So, I happened on this recipe and just happened to have all the ingredients, so here it is.
2 T virgin coconut oil- has to be the good kind
3 T baking soda
5-8 drops peppermint or spearmint essential oil
pinch of stevia powder or 5-6 drops stevia liquid
(stevia is an herb that is naturally sweet)
Basically you just mix it all together and put in a sealed container. I just dip my toothbrush in it and brush. My teeth feel very smooth after brushing, however I'm told it doesn't totally take away bad breath. Maybe I should add more peppermint...
My husband tried it this morning and he liked it. I may try one for the girls only use some tangerine essential oil and vanilla extract and more stevia. We'll see...
Deodorant recipe coming soon :)
Sorry there are no pictures. I just don't have the time I would like to take and download pictures right now. Maybe in the future I can get some up. There's not really a lot to see on this one.
