Make Your Own Toothpaste

Homemade toothpaste is easy to make and healthier than most alternatives, which often contain artificial sweeteners (toxic, and a cause of bad breath!) and chemicals that soak straight into our bloodstream through our sensitive gums.

While there’s quite a few options (I like this one) available at health food stores (read your ingredients!), I’ve been experimenting with different homemade recipes; here’s the re-mineralizing version I whipped up this morning:

Quick Homemade Toothpaste:

  • 1 Tbs. Baking Soda
  • 1 Tbs. Liquid Bentonite Clay (re-mineralizing)
  • 1 tsp. Non-GMO Xylitol (Anti-bacterial)
  • 1/8 tsp. Cinnamon (Anti-microbial/stimulates blood flow for healthy gums)

Directions:

  1. Stir all ingredients together (make sure to use glass, wood, or even a bpa-free plastic to mix and contain the toothpaste, as the bentonite clay can soak up heavy metals and other toxins when it comes in contact with anything metal).
  2. Apply to toothpaste to toothbrush as usual and brush away!

Your mouth should feel ultra-clean and your breath should stay extra-fresh all day long.

Mmm… so good for your body and way. too. easy.

Enjoy!
