My older sister makes her own toothpaste and when ny niece and nephew stayed over recently, she taught me how.
Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Ingredients 180g solid coconut oil
Tblsp powdered cinnamon
Tblsp bicarbonate of soda (not baking powder)
5 drops of peppermint oil
3 drops orange oil
Place the oil in a suitable receptacle and add the cinnamon.
Add the baking powder and combine.
Add the oils and combine.
Mix to a paste and use immediately.
Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
If, like my sister, you're conscious of what goes into a lot of products your kids use, then making your own toothpaste really is the answer. It is refreshing, safe and keeps your kids teeth healthy, naturally.
