Lets talk toothpaste, shall we!. Boring? NO! Come on, lets face it, we all use it and we all need it. The problem is, that commercial toothpaste is loaded with toxins and carcinogenics. Why would I use something like that? Specifically the Laurel Sulfate! Have you heard of it? I hadn’t until after my 26th lupus related canker sore and my 2 dozenth trip to the Rheumatologist in a 6 month period and my doctor told me my body was having allergic reaction to the Laurel Sulfate. My hunt was on for a Laurel Sulfate free toothpaste. Are you kidding? That crap is in every tube! I’ve looked at more toothpaste labels in the past 3 years then I have actually brushed my teeth.. ok that a lie, but you get the point. Then it hit me.. why buy something, when you can make it yourself. Isn’t making everything homemade my gig anyways?
My Healing Toothpaste recipe can be made for just pennies and the Pure Essential Oils give this toothpaste anti-cavity and antibacterial properties. Along with peppermint for sparkling minty breath, this healing toothpaste will make your mouth kissable fresh!
- ½ Cup Baking soda
- ¾ Cup Coconut oil
- 5 drops Mryhh Essentail Oil
- 7 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
- 5 drops Thieves
- 4 Tablespoons water
- *optional 3 Drops Fennel Essential OIl
- Combine all ingredients into a glass mixing bowl. Using a electric mixer, beat until well combined and fluffy.
- Fill a quart Ziploc bag with the toothpaste. Cut a small whole in the corner and "pipe" into the squeezable toothpaste containers.
- I buy my squeezable toothpaste tubes here.
- Alternatively you can place your toothpaste in a jelly jar and scoop onto toothbrush. Being careful to replace the lid after each use.
I chose all of the ingredients based on certain properties..
I use COCONUT OIL as a base for this, if you don’t know the benefits of coconut oil, read this.. http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/13-evidence-based-medicinal-properties-coconut-oil . I don’t oil pull, this is the next best thing.
BAKING SODA.. Stain remover, teeth whitener
MRYHH.. anti-infectious, anti-septic, astringent
THIEVES.. anti-viral, anti-septic, hands down best antibacterial oil in the world, (in my opinion, of course)
PEPPERMINT.. antiseptic, invigorating
**FENNEL.. anti-toxin, helps elevated and prevent mouth ulcers
*note about squeezable tubes,, if you find that the toothpaste is too hard to squeeze out, repeat step 1 and add in 2 tablespoons more of water. You can buy them HERE.
