No matter the brand i always get the same result from toothpastes they burn my tongue. 😦
For the past few months i have been making my own toothpaste, with just a couple of ingredients from the pantry. Simple and awesome, not only does it not burn my poor little tongue it’s super whitening.
What you’ll need
Combine equal amounts of coconut oil and bicarb soda in a bowl and mix well.
You can add a few drops of peppermint essence for a minty taste
and a some stevia drops for a little sweetness
I keep mine simple the taste dosen’t bother me.
Store in a jar baby food jars are a perfect size
Wet your toothbrush
Dip into jar of paste
Brush your teeth for a few minutes
Spit (doesn’t really foam up like normal toothpaste) and rinse
May be a little salty but you will get used to it
Your teeth will feel super clean, like you have just had the cleaned at the dentist.
Coconut oil is antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti fungal, all great for fighting off tooth decay and mouth cleaning. Baking Soda is a mild abrasive agent which aids in cleaning and whitening the teeth and restoring pH balance.
Yesterday we played around making muesli bars, i had two types on the go one for the kids seed/nut free for little miss as she is not able to chew seeds yet and one packed with seeds and nuts. I wasn’t entirely happy with the seedy bar so ill just post the kids one today.
