All Natural Homemade Toothpaste! Special Message from The Herb Factory!

It is my absolute pleasure to be a guest blogger for H.I.N.T.S. this month! After I share a glimpse into an extraordinary journey that has become my life, I will also share one of my favorite recipes – Homemade Toothpaste. Not only is this one of my favorites, it is also one of the first recipes I made after reading about the dangers of fluoride.

It all began as I was made aware of the toxic chemicals lurking in homes and personal care products. The more I researched, I became alarmed by their potential harm. I am not one to overreact, but research overwhelmingly supports the facts. Therefore, I am a believer!

Our family is gradually replacing home and personal care products with quality homemade alternatives. We have chosen to make our own because it is very simple, inexpensive, and most of the ingredients are readily available. This has been a satisfying and rewarding personal experience. Notice I wrote, “Gradually.” Take your time, make small changes, and find what works.

As the journey began, my excitement became contagious in my realm of friends, family, and co-workers. Many wanted to try my goods (aka Guinee Pigs) and asked how to make their own. The Herb Factory was founded with the goal of teaching and equipping others within our community.

At The Herb Factory we encourage the use of only raw, natural and/or organic ingredients in your products. The use of essential oils is a must. Keep accurate observation notes, dates and recipes for greater quality and consistency. It is important to keep in mind that a truly natural product has very few ingredients. A reduced shelf-life is also to be expected due to the absence of preservatives.

Remember to experiment with both fresh and dried herbs as well. These are perfect for use in your home remedies, natural products, or just pure sipping enjoyment. There are so many wonderful natural and beneficial alternatives available, so do your research, experiment a little, and start enjoying your own homemade, natural products! Here is your first recipe:

All Natural, Homemade Toothpaste

 

  • 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • 4 to 5 Tablespoons Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Peppermint Oil
  • 1 Package Single Serve Stevia Powder

 

Mix the dry ingredients before adding the coconut and peppermint oils. Stir well, and store in a small glass jar. The textures will vary depending on the temperature in your home. Just scoop accordingly. I encourage you to experiment with recipes until you find what you like best. Enjoy!

 

Live, Laugh, and Love…Naturally,
