How to Make Homemade Toothpaste
With prices continuing to rise on virtually everything, many people are looking for alternatives and things to make at home. Toothpaste you buy in the stores is filled with chemicals and some even contain sugar in them. I have found a recipe that works better than any store brand toothpaste out there.
4 tsp Dr. Bronner's unscented or peppermint liquid castile soap
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1 tsp Slim Sweet, xylitol (prevents cavities) or Stevia
20 drops clove, spearmint, peppermint, cinnamon, or sweet orange essential oils
Boil a little bit of water in a small sauce pan. In a blender or food processor mix 2 tablespoons boiled water with the rest of the above ingredients until frothy. That's it, now using a funnel put it into a lotion dispenser. The lotion dispenser makes for very easy use of your toothpaste.
