Toothpaste

So I thought I'd post really quick about our little toothpaste switcharoo. We finished up using our Tom's of Maine toothpaste we'd been using for a couple of years (not one tube..the brand) because of the Sodium Laureth Sulfate in its ingredients. We're phasing out this harmful junk out of our home and our toothpaste was the last to switch out!

We just started trying out Jason's Sea Fresh toothpaste which is SLS free and flouride free! Looooove it! My teeth feel much cleaner than what the Tom's took care of! I give it a thumbs up;)
That is all.

  1. yeah, toothpaste is not so great. i have been experimenting with a homemade toothpaste recipe that uses baking soda (duh) and coconut oil to make a paste...it tastes strange but it cleans way better than any store bought toothpaste i've ever tried!

    Mix together:
    2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil
    3 Tablespoons of Baking Soda
    10 drops Peppermint Essential oil
    a pinch of Stevia powder (an herbal supplement that tastes sweet)

    "I tried this and it tastes really salty while you brush because of the baking soda, but it left my mouth feeling clean and shiny. This won't foam. Just dip a dry toothbrush in the mixture. Also, coconut oil is anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, so your toothbrush should actually stay a little more sanitary!"
