Natural Beauty: Clean Skin, Teeth, and Lips (see recipe below)
The Oil Cleansing Method
How to Clean Your Hair Without Using Shampoo
Homemade Soaps and Body Care
Basic Homemade Toothpaste
2 Tablespoons of coconut oil
2 to 3 Tablespoons of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of Stevia powder
a few drops of pure peppermint extract
Mix it all together until it resembles toothpaste.
Coconut oil has a melting point of 76 degrees Fahrenheit, which means this toothpaste feels more liquidy during warmer weather. It doesn’t change its effectiveness, though.
The Stevia provides a bit of natural sweetness, making the toothpaste palatable, as does the pure peppermint extract. You could try a variety of flavors to your liking.
Right now, I’ve got this toothpaste in a small lidded jar, and I scoop out a tiny bit with a tea spoon onto my toothbrush. But you can also get empty squeeze tubes, often found among camping supplies at stores.
