Homemade Toothpaste with Himalayan Salt

If you are like me and enjoy creating your own body care products, using clean and simple ingredients, here is a simple and effective toothpaste. I’ve been trying this one out and really liking it!

Ingredients:

4 Tbs Coconut Oil
4 Tbs Bentonite Clay
2 – 3 Tbs filtered water
1/2 tsp Pink Salt
10 – 15 drops peppermint essential oil
(You can add a few drops of liquid stevia if you feel so inclined.)

Directions:

1. Mix coconut oil, clay, and salt in a small bowl. Start with just one tablespoon of water. Working with the back of a spoon, “cream” the ingredients together and add more water until you like the consistency. (If you choose to add in a few drops of liquid stevia, this is the step to do it).

2. Add in the peppermint oil (or cinnamon or spearmint) and then mix until well combined. Store in air tight container.

To use: Place a pea-size amount on your toothbrush and the brush. Not too hard. Not too long. Just enough to make your mouth happy. Rinse. (Although it’s safe to consume in case your kiddies don’t rinse very well.)
