2.5 cups baking soda
3/4 cup coconut oil
3 Tbsp Himalayan (pink) sea salt
100 drops Nature's Sunshine Peppermint essential oil
1/4-1/2 cup Nature's Sunshine Xylitol (to taste)
Mix all ingredients in an electric mixer (or a hand mixer) until well combined.
This recipe makes 3 3/4 cups total.
NOTE: To like this product you have to "think different". This product will not lather up like traditional toothpaste. I also recommend using a soft bristle brush so that you do not get too abrasive with your gums. This product has some "grit" to it. I put a little on my toothbrush, brush my bottom teeth, then add more and brush my upper teeth. The baking soda and pink sea salt add essential minerals to keep our teeth, enamel and gums strong. We have gone seriously wrong in what we choose to brush our teeth with. Most commercial products do nothing to feed or re-mineralize our teeth, not to mention the fluoride, chemicals, preservatives and other garbage in most all oral hygeine products.
After I brush, I put 1 drop of Peppermint oil on the back of my hand and lick it off for some extreme minty breath (when I'm not nursing as peppermint can reduce milk production). It's strong, but so so good for you!
