2 T coconut oil
3T baking soda (sifted)
1 T xylitol (birch based, sifted)
2 capfuls of peppermint oil (or about 1/2 t)
Blend all ingredients well using a fork. Store in an airtight container, dipping your toothbrush in to use.
Each ingredient serves a purpose as follows:
- Coconut oil not only gives the toothpaste a paste quality, it is also a natural anti-bacterial.
- Baking soda is a mild abrasive & also combats odors naturally.
- Xylitol gives the paste a sweeter taste, as the baking soda is extremely salty tasting. It has a cooling taste to it, making your mouth feel cool & fresh. The xylitol is also excellent for dental health.
- Peppermint oil (you can use other oils if desired) gives your mouth a clean minty feel & taste.
