Homemade Toothpaste

In my steps toward a healthier, less toxic lifestyle, I've begun to eliminate as much chemicals from our home as possible. One of my most recent experiments is with toothpaste.

I found it to be a worthwhile endeavour that will definitely cost less than the toothpaste we normally use. Coconut oil is one of the ingredients in the recipe. Since we have coconuts in abundance from my inlaws garden, hubby has been making coconut oil the non-heated way(details to come in another post) so that was not an expense for us. Another of the ingredients laid out in Homestead Momma's post: Homemade Toothpaste was oil of peppermint. I did not have the recommended oil of peppermint but did it anyway. The taste was okay. One of the things I searched for while in Guadeloupe is the oil of peppermint and I'm happy to report that I did get it. Now my homemade toothpaste will include it and give the familiar minty taste that we are used to.

Check out the recipe and give it a try. Anything that eliminates chemicals from our homes is a good thing. Of course if you can get natural toothpaste at a reasonable price then by all means do that. Being healthier also means being responsible with our budgets.
