DIY Toothpaste Benefits
Baking soda- prevents plaque and gingivitis by reducing the bacteria in your teeth. This also makes it harder for cavity-causing bacteria to grow in your mouth. Baking soda has also been shown to be effective at removing stains on your teeth, making it great for teeth whitening!
Activated charcoal- may reduce stains on your teeth. It binds to dirt and stains that you can’t see on the surface and pulls them out, cleaning your teeth and skin.
You can also add a few drops of essential oil to the toothpaste if you already have some and would like to use it, but I don’t recommend going out and buying it. You can read more on the effects of essential oil here.
Homemade Toothpaste Recipe
- 1/2 tsp Activated Charcoal

- 2 tbsp Coconut Oil

To use the toothpaste, scoop it with a small spoon or your toothbrush and brush as normal.
