HOMEMADE
TOOTHPASTE

WITH PEPPERMINT OIL!

With fresh peppermint taste!

Ingredients

  • Baking soda

  • Coconut-oil

  • Peppermint essential oil

  • Tea tree essential oil

  • salt

Love this easy recipe for homemade sustainable toothpaste. It is so easy and fun to make.

The paste is made by equal parts baking soda and coconut-oil. Add a pinch of salt, and peppermint/tea tree essential oil for a fresh taste.

Heat the coconut-oil over a double boiler, I then measure how many tablespoons of coconut-oil I have melted and add the same amount of baking soda (for norwegian readers - make sure you use baking soda and not baking powder!). Cool it down and mix a pinch of salt and peppermint/tea tree essential oil to taste.​
