Most commercial toothpastes are contaminated with fluoride, sulfates, and chemicals that are harmful to the body. Bentonite clay is naturally cleansing and will bind to toxins and acidic materials in the mouth. It is often used in tooth powder recipes and is known to help remineralize teeth. Baking soda aids in cleaning and coconut adds antibacterial and anti-fungal properties to this tooth scrub. Add few drops of naturally microbial peppermint essential oil and you have a super germ fighting tooth scrub that has a taste you can get used to.
4 Tbs coconut oil, whipped or melted
2 Tbs bentonite clay
2 Tbs baking soda
½ tsp natural green stevia
10-15 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil
Combine all ingredients until smooth and blended. A food processor will work well for this. You can add more coconut oil or dry ingredients to create a paste with a texture you prefer.
