Homemade Coconut Oil, Nutmeg & Cinnamon Toothpaste Recipe

Why Make Homemade Toothpaste?

It might not sound necessary to make your own toothpaste, but you might want to after you look at the ingredients list on your toothpaste. I think it should be a rule if you can’t pronounce half the ingredients or you couldn’t name what one of those ingredients does, then you should not be putting the product in your body.

Benefits of Homemade Toothpaste

So what are the benefits of making your own toothpaste? Besides getting to make the toothpaste taste anyway you want and costing less than store bought toothpaste, there are number of other benefits that come from the ingredients.

  • Calcium  – Essential for optimal body functioning and it is an effective abrasive in the homemade toothpaste.
  • Bentonite clay – Helps rid the body of toxins.
  • Coconut oil – A strong antibacterial and antiviral that keeps bacteria at bay.
