One of the things I have been meaning to try for a while is toothpaste. I have been buying different "natural" brands that I could find, but they still have some questionable ingredients that I would like to avoid. So, today I made my own toothpaste.... (I got this recipe from pinterest).
1 part coconut oil
1 part baking soda
about 1 tsp. hydrogen peroxide
peppermint essential oils (to taste)
I was all set on this working and being my new toothpaste but then I tried it...YUCK!!!! I cannot get past the taste of the baking soda. It was so bitter and salty. Gross! After I tried it, I added 2 packs of stevia and it was a little better. I don't think that this is something I could use every single day, but I think I could use it a couple times a week or so. Maybe my hubby will like it because he likes bitter tasting things. I am gonna make him try it out tonight.
If you try it (or a similar recipe to this one) let me know what you think in the comments below. I would love to hear from you. :)
