Homemade Toothpaste

What about your pearly whites? Are you taking the best care of them you can?

Well, this homemade version of toothpaste has been my toothpaste of choice for more than a year now and my teeth show it. I’ve had great reports from both my dentists and I have noticed a really big difference in the color of my natural teeth (I do unfortunately have both bridges and crowns in┬ámy mouth!).

This is such an easy recipe to make. It only produces a small amount, but you might want to try it first before making too much. I choose to make mine with Peppermint Essential Oil, but you could use whatever flavor you like.
