    Homemade Toothpaste

    It’s so easy to make your own toothpaste (& toiletries & household items in general) with simple wholesome ingredients.  I recently made some toothpaste & it’s a huge hit in our household … it tastes great & leaves your teeth feeling super clean.  Here’s the simple recipe:

    Sweet Orange Toothpaste

    3/4 cup coconut oil

    3 Tbs baking soda

    6-10 drops of sweet orange essential oil (or to taste) / or peppermint or any oil you love

    10 drops of liquid stevia (or to taste) / or 2-3 packets of stevia powder

    Place all ingredients in a food processor & blend until well combined.  Scoop out into a bowl or dish & keep in your bathroom.  Use as you would typical toothpaste.  YUMMMMM!
