Combine ingredients in a bowl, should be the consistency of sugar cookie dough so add juice or washing soda to get to right consistency.

Spoon mixture into ice cube trays and sit in the sun to dry.

Yep, I made that plunge.  😉 Your’e Welcome.

     Toothpaste

  • 4 T Coconut Oil (I used organic, virgin)
  • 6 T Baking Soda
  • 1 packet Stevia Powder
  • 30-50 drops Peppermint Essential Oil (start low and add to your liking)

Mix all ingredients together.  Store in sealed container on your counter.  You can experiment with other flavors etc.  I have heard of people using other mint oils in place of the peppermint.  Make it your own.
