I found this simple toothpaste recipe on Familysponge.com. I changed it just a bit to suit my own tastes.
Here is the recipe I used.
- 6 tbsp coconut oil
- 6 tbsp baking soda
- 3/4 tsp (65 drops) peppermint essential oil
- 3/4 tsp stevia
When I used this for the first time this afternoon, it was awful. Even though I had drastically increased the amount of essential oil, the coconut flavor was overwhelming. I definitely did not enjoy it. I will let the toothpaste sit and see if the flavors blend better over time. In the meantime I will look for a recipe that does not contain coconut oil or at least a much smaller proportion.
