Coconut oil is antibacterial, antimicrobial, and anti fungal! Studies have shown that coconut oil destroys the bacteria that can cause tooth decay. The other primary ingredient in this toothpaste is baking soda. Baking soda is a very mild abrasive which aids in cleaning and whitening teeth, and restoring pH balance.
About 1/2 Cup of Skin Gourmet's Cold Pressed Coconut Oil
2-3 Tablespoons of Baking Soda
2 Teaspoons of Skin Gourmet's Wild Northern Honey
15-20 drops of Peppermint or Cinnamon Essential Oil
Step 1: Melt or slightly soften coconut oil.
Step 2; Mix in other ingredients and stir well. If using semi-hard coconut oil, use a fork, if not, use a spoon. If you are using completely melted coconut oil, you will need to stir several times while the mixture cools to keep the baking soda incorporated.
Step 3: Put mixture into small glass jar (I make different ones for each family member)
Step 4: Let cool completely.
To Use: dip the toothbrush in and scrape small amount onto bristles. Could also use a small spoon to put on toothbrush.
