Today we have a *guest post* to share from “Goofy Mama” blogger, Allison Kuznia.  Today she is sharing her family’s sweet and simple all natural (and extremely affordable) recipe for homemade whitening toothpaste.  We’re enjoying it mint flavor right now with pure food grade peppermint essential oil, and I think I’ll be trying orange or lemon flavor next!

Visit Allison’s blog[1] for humorous real life stories mixed with natural living tips and recipes.  You’re guaranteed to at least crack a smile by visiting!

Guest Post – by Goofy Mama:

My family has been making our own toothpaste for over a year now, and, let me tell you, it is wonderful!  It saves us money, it’s COMPLETELY natural, and I just went to the dentist and he told me that my teeth are extraordinary!  (He also told me to use fluoridated toothpaste, but that part I chose to ignore.)

So, anyway, without further ado, here is the recipe:

Homemade Toothpaste
Makes 1/3 cup

2 Tbsp coconut oil
3 Tbsp baking soda
Peppermint extract, to taste
Stevia, to taste (we don’t use it at all in the toothpaste anymore, but you can do whatever)

Mix together with a fork.  Bada bing, bada boom, there’s your toothpaste!
