Traditional toothpaste contains Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, fluoride and other ingredients that are toxic to the body. Have you ever wondered why a product meant for the mouth should have an “IF SWALLOWED, CALL POISON CONTROL IMMEDIATELY” warning on the label?
Never fear, safe and healthy toothpaste is here. A few years back, one of our sons had 3 cavities. Since switching to this toothpaste, we have not had one cavity. I’m just saying... Enjoy!
1 cup baking soda
1/8 teaspoon stevia powder
1 Tablespoon Inulin powder
1 Tablespoon (more or less depending on your taste) peppermint essential oil
Organic melted extra virgin coconut oil (enough to make it slightly runnier than regular toothpaste)
Place baking soda and stevia powder in a bowl and mix well. Next, add the peppermint oil then add enough coconut oil to make the mixture slightly more runny than traditional toothpaste, mixing well. Taste and add more peppermint or stevia (to make it sweeter)
depending on your taste preference.
Place toothpaste in half pint jars for use. I use one jar per person to keep from passing germs around. Because coconut oil is solid at room
temperature, this toothpaste will solidify and thicken based on the temperature in which it is stored.
Dip (or scoop) toothbrush in toothpaste until brush has a good amount
of paste then brush teeth as usual.
NOTE: I make Inulin/stevia powder in advance then just add about 1 Tablespoon of it to this recipe. To make the powder, I mix 1/2 oz stevia to 12 oz. Inulin. Keep this in an airtight jar.
