Handmade toothpaste recipe

Handmade toothpaste recipe: Did you know that you can make your own toothpaste with just 4 ingredients?

Standard toothpaste could contain way more than that, and not the best ones… Abrasives, detergents, flavours (saccharine), humectants, binders and other additives.

And let’s not forget the sublingual administration principle: When a chemical comes in contact with the mucous membrane beneath the tongue, it is absorbed.

Besides, just a soft toothbrush and a good brushing techniques will remove plaque.

Good food habits and regular appointments would be enough to keep a good dental hygiene.

But if you want to have a fresh toothbrush feeling and add an antiseptic, antifungal or whitener effects some natural ingredients will help you: sodium bicarbonate, white clay and salt will be enough.

-1 tsbp sodium bicarbonate : whitener

-4 tsbp white clay: purifying and anti-infectious

-1/2 tsbp salt: antiseptic and antifungal

-2 drops of citron essential oil: antiseptic and bactericidal.

Mix all the ingredients and put them on a small glass container.
yes, zero waste because you’ll avoid plastics again!

Also we buy now our bamboo toothbrushes, but I am looking for sustainable brands because all those “trendy bamboo products” could have apparently a bad environment impact now…I need to read more about that!

It’s another very easy recipe, takes 5 minutes to make and it’s healthier for you and the planet! Avoiding plastics in the packaging and in the ingredients. And it’s handier for Travels too! Would you try that handmade toothpaste recipe?
