Here's another great way to return to simple living. This recipe includes baking soda which is known to help whiten teeth and coconut oil which supports cavity prevention. This recipe is not only fun to make, but also can save you some of your hard earned money by reducing the cost spent on toothpaste.
Here is the recipe we are using in our home and loving for a natural toothpaste:
3 Tbsp. baking soda
3 Tbsp. coconut oil
6 drops lemon essential oil
6 drops protective blend essential oil
1 Tbsp. Aloe Vera Gel (optional)
Mix first two ingredients in glass jar.
Add Aloe Vera Gel (if using)
Add essential oils
Use a small spoon or other washable non-plastic applicator tool to apply toothpaste to toothbrush to avoid contamination. Brush teeth as normal.
