Today I tried DIY Toothpaste. And I have to say I’m not sure if I’ll stick with it. The DIY Shampoo and Conditioner is working fine, but neither of those involves taste. This one does. I’m willing to give it the old college try though.
Following the excellent instructions from this tutorial, I combined coconut oil, baking soda and peppermint essential oil into a creamy textured mixture using my hand blender. It certainly looks yummy, but the harsh taste of the baking soda, like I said, is going to take a bit of getting used too. I don’t mind coconut oil because it’s the only oil we use to cook with.
Honestly I really don’t mind my regular toothpaste, but I love trying to see if other ways will work. I’ll give you my final thoughts at the end of the month.
I think it goes without saying that whatever toothpaste you use, you should brush and floss everyday.
Do they make dog toothpaste? If so I’d like chicken flavor.
