I finally got a good combination down for homemade toothpaste!
My bf had major complaints on my last few attempts…too baking soda tasting every time. Which, I had to agree..and it’s hard to get someone to switch to homemade toothpaste if it tastes like you’re chewing baking soda. Yuck!
I don’t have any pictures just yet..I’ll upload some after my next batch. I had someone ask me to make them some so probably after I get theirs made!
Yummy Homemade Toothpaste
these measurements are approximate..adjust to suit your tastes
1 tsp Dr Bronners Liquid Castile Soap (I used the peppermint kind)
1 Stevia Packet
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp aloe vera
3-4 tsp baking soda
Few drops of essential oil(I added 3 drops of spearmint. Mine was plenty minty with the peppermint soap!)
Few drops of Vit E oil (optional)
Splash of hot water
In a medium bowl, put splash of hot water and stevia together. Add coconut oil and aloe vera. Whisk together. Blend in the baking soda. Add the soap and whisk like crazy! It’ll froth up a bit and look just like commercial toothpaste!
Add the essential oils (if any) and then put in a jar or tube. I put mine in a little travel tube, but it was quite the pain to get it in there nicely..but then I have a nice lil tube of fresh toothpaste. Your choice.
It doesn’t froth up like regular toothpaste, but it also doesn’t taste like baking soda. Woo hoo! Big score there. I’m wondering if there would be any merit to adding Vitamin A or anything else to it. I’ll post any changes I make that I think are beneficial.
