Have you ever considered making your own toothpaste? Try out this simple recipe. It’s free of all the chemicals and fluoride you find in the store bought brands.
1/2 cup baking soda
1/4 hydrogen peroxide (you can add more or less depending on the consistency you like)
1 to 3 drops essential oil of peppermint
1 to 2 drops tea tree oil
Mix all of the ingredients together and store in an air-tight container. If you want a smoother feel, you can add vegetable glycerin. To sweeten the toothpaste just add some powdered stevia. It’s going to be a much different experience brushing with homemade toothpaste as opposed to the store bought kind but it’s so cheap and easy!
