DIY ToothPaste!


Natural-Homemade Toothpaste
After starting making my own kombucha and enjoying not only the process of making it myself and feeling the proudness of knowing what I am getting into my body, I decided to try some new things.
I´ve watched and read a couple of recipes, but I didn´t like much the fact that most people add some natural sweeteners to their toothpaste. At home, we are pretty good in keep sugar or any kind of sweets out of our diet if it is not really necessary.
Then I came up with this final product, which we have been using for more than 3 weeks, and I can really see the difference in my children and myself. My son´s teeth is a lot whiter and clean and I have for as long as I know had issues with bleeding gums, but after start using my homemade toothpaste it is gone :)!
The recipe is simple: 1tbspoon of Coconut Oil; 2 tbspoon of Baking Soda and 1 teaspoon of Cinnamon Powder. Mix together until you get a uniform paste.
I store it in this little containers and use a little spatula to take the amount we use to brush our teeth.
Even my 18 months old uses it and we don´t have to worry about she swallowing it.
Let me know if you try it on and your thoughts on it!
My teeth haven't been this light for years! :)
