Easy Homemade Essential Oil Toothpaste with Clove Essential Oil

So, if you are like I am, you avoid the toxins, chemicals and ingredients you can't pronounce. Toothpastes are a tricky one. So many are still made with saccharine, triclosan and dye (artificial color). How many of us really want these in our mouths and in our bodies ?

The answer is simpler than most people think. Make your own ! It's less expensive than most commercial brands of toothpaste and easy to use. The downside is that it may be a bit gritty and you'll need a small glass container.

So, here's one homemade Toothpaste that I have made and use -

3 Tbs baking soda
1 tsp Sea (or Himalayan) Salt
1 drop Clove Essential Oil (organic is preferable)
Optional: 1 drop of Peppermint Essential Oil (organic is preferable)

Directions for use:
Mix all and dip your lightly toothbrush in to paste. Brush.

Thanks for reading ! Beth
