This herbal toothpaste is made with only three simple ingredients. For starters, it contains baking soda, which not only brightens the teeth, but will also help slow down plaque build-up. The oil extracted from coconut may help control microbial growth, nourish the gums, and improve breath. At last, peppermint may help prevent tooth decay and will leave a fresh aftertaste in the mouth.

  1. In a small bowl, mix the baking soda with coconut oil until a smooth paste is formed. Add either of the ingredients to reach your desired consistency.(3 minutes)
  2. Add the peppermint essential oil drops, mix them in, and transfer the paste into a small container. Enjoy!

To use your herbal toothpaste, you may use a popsicle stick to take out a small amount and spread it on your toothbrush. You may also dedicate your own toothpaste container to gently dip the toothbrush directly in it.
