If you stick around my blog long you will find out that I like to make a lot of homemade products to get rid of toxins in my home; one of the first things I started making was toothpaste!

Since I have little ones getting conventional items full of toxins and chemicals out of my home is a top priority. Have you ever read the warning label on the back of your toothpaste tube? Mine says, ” KEEP out of reach of children. If more is swallowed than the normal amount used for brushing, get medical help or contact poison control right away.” YIKES! Something that my kids see me put in my mouth could greatly harm them if they put it in their mouth. This is why I decided to make my own toothpaste with natural and safe ingredients.
For this recipe you will need: calcium carbonate, xylitol, baking soda, coconut oil, and essential oils.
Mix 5 parts calcium carbonate, 3 parts xylitol, and 2 parts baking soda in a bowl. Add 5 drops clove bud, and 15 drops peppermint essential oil. Add 3-5 parts coconut oil and mix until well combined.
Store your toothpaste in a airtight container. That simple!
