Sustainable Living 11

Last week I tried a new recipe to continue my quest for sustainable living.  I made my own toothpaste!  It was very easy and tasted pretty much like toothpaste.  As the original recipe might be a bit abrasive, the next time I will experiment by reducing the amount of baking soda.  Below is a photo of the end product, as well as the original recipe:

Homemade Toothpaste

5 Tbsp baking soda
4 Tbsp coconut oil
10 drops of essential oil (peppermint
You can also add a bit of stevia or other natural sweetener if you're used to sweeter toothpaste.
