New experiments in tooth care

I gave up on the sage and sea salt tooth powder as a primary tooth care solution after the first batch. I think it would be good as a back up option for days with tooth pain, but the sage bits had a bad habit of sticking to my teeth and I felt like it wasn’t effective enough in battling bacteria. 

However, I wasn’t ready to return to commercial toothpaste! For the past few months, I’ve been using a very simple formula:

– 4 tablespoons of coconut oil

– 4 tablespoons of baking soda

– 20 drops of peppermint oil.

Mix in jar, keep in cool dry place out of the sun, and, voila! Instant toothpaste that tastes great. The only caveat is to not spit it down the sink, because coconut oil solidifies at room temperature.
