Check out my IG tv channel for a video on the zero waste toothpaste recipe we use! After 2 years of using this, the dentist says our teeth are great! My tooth sensitivity even stopped! It turns out regular tooth paste has an ingredient called sodium lauryl sulfate that can strip gums of healthy cells.
The recipe is:
2 TB Baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Dr. Bronners coconut oil
10 drops peppermint essential oil from @goodfortunesoap
One note about fluoride, I do still brush my kids teeth with a Toms of Maine toothpaste with fluoride about once a week.
Another word about healthy teeth, going zero waste has meant we stopped or reduced our intake of soda and processed snacks. We did this because of the packaging, but an awesome side benefit is healthier teeth!
