Saving Money in the Bathroom Part 1 – Toothpaste
Part One of Money Saving Tips in the Bathroom – Homemade Toothpaste
Ever get tired of buying expensive toothpaste? I know we got tired of it all as well. Plus we try to stay as natural as possible, and if you haven’t noticed toothpaste these days have a lot of chemicals in them that are not that great for you health wise. So we did a little researching and have come across a recipe for making toothpaste that we like to use and we had to tweak it a bit from the recipe we found because it was way too salty and it was way to powdery. The recipe below is great, It cleans, whitens and makes your breath smell so much better, it even helps with that garlic and onion smell. Plus it’s great for freshening your breath without all the unhealthy chemicals. So in order to make your own you won’t really have to look past your kitchen. Plus you will save so much money you will thank me later.
– Toothpaste Recipe
In my search awhile ago I came across a few different recipes for toothpaste and I tweaked it for more of our preference so here you go.
- 1/4 cup of Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp of Sea Salt
- 10-15 drops of essential oil – my favorites are peppermint and clove oil
- 1 1/4 tsp of peroxide
- 3 tsp of water – Make sure it’s bottled and fluoride hasn’t been added.
Mix it all the powders together then add the peroxide and water and essential oil.
*It will not be gel like. It will be slightly grainy.
***Kids can use this recipe if you take the Peroxide out of it***
– Toothpaste Recipe for Kids
It is really easy
- 1/8 cup of Baking Soda
- 1/8 cup of melted Coconut Oil
- 10-15 drops of essential oil *Optional *With kids you can add some fruity taste like lemon oil or orange.
***Coconut oil can become solid again, so make sure you keep it in a warmer location or keep it in a glass open faced jar for easy scooping. Not recommended for a squeeze tube or bottle.***
Adults can use this recipe too.
Have you ever tried making your own toothpaste and if so what did you think?
