Have you ever thought about what’s in your toothpaste? My friend Hayley over at nobopilates.com posted this recipe a few days ago. It got me thinking about the ingredients in our toothpaste. If you brush your teeth 2-3 times each day, that’s 730-1,095 times per year. Check your tube and research the ingredients. You may be surprised.
I made my own toothpaste a couple of days ago using the above recipe, and was pleasantly surprised. I used both doTerra peppermint and wintergreen oils. The texture is a little firmer than regular toothpaste. The flavor was good. The only change I will make next time is to reduce the amount of salt by a little bit because it was saltier than I prefer. My mouth felt fresh and clean.
Added bonus: I know exactly what I’m putting in my mouth.
