These days toothpastes are ridden with so many toxic chemicals, and yet we continue to put them in our mouths day after day. That’s why having a good homemade alternative is not only economical, but a great way to go more green in the bathroom and in our mouths!
Tammy’s Recipes has a great homemade toothpaste recipe that I use. But, instead of Stevia as a sweetener, I prefer to use Xylitol as it is good for the teeth. I’m still unsure as to how good Stevia is for the teeth.
If you have Xylitol, Baking Soda, Coconut Oil and Peppermint Oil, then you can make your own toothpaste. Check out the homemade toothpaste recipe on Tammy’s Recipes here.
