I thought it would be neat to try to make my own toothpaste. I didn’t have high hopes for a DIY toothpaste recipe. I thought how clean could baking soda plus peppermint make my teeth? I’ve made this recipe twice and stopped buying store bought toothpaste. Here is my version from DIY Natural’s toothpaste recipe.
I was surprised that the consistency of the paste stays the same. I thought the water would evaporate. This recipe is extremely frugal compared to my $7 natural tube of toothpaste.
DIY TOOTHPASTE RECIPE
- 2/3 cup baking soda
- Dash of sea salt
- ½ tbsp. or more peppermint extract
- water (add to desired consistency)
- Mix the baking soda, salt and peppermint extract together. Add a little bit of water to make a paste. Continue to add water until desired paste.
