Cleaning or brushing teeth is an important job that we must do to keep our dental and overall health stable, and choosing a toothpaste takes part in keeping good dental health because not all kinds of toothpaste are the same and not all of them are healthy because some of them contain chemicals that can be considered harmful.

There are organic and natural kinds of toothpaste that are chemicals-free and top all of the other kinds, but they come at a ridiculously high price that most of the middle class can’t afford. Cleaning your teeth with a fully organic toothpaste is quite expensive that is why there is always a DIY solution.

If you can’t afford an organic toothpaste, then you can make your own using items that you can get from local artisans. The items needed are fully organic, simple, and the best part is, affordable.

To make this toothpaste you have to get past the mental barrier of fear that will prevent you from making any noticeable progress. I know that self-doubt builds up when making important things that you’ll be using daily. Now with that out of the way, here are some motivating reasons that are going to push your will forward. The homemade toothpaste’s cost is relatively cheap, and the toothpaste itself is free from toxins, fluoride, and chemicals. Furthermore, you will use only a bunch of ingredients that you are already familiar with, and you can customize the toothpaste’s taste using your favorite essential oils.

To make the DIY toothpaste you are going to need:

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons of baking soda
  • A tablespoon of neem powder
  • 2 drops of essential oil of your choice
  • 4 tablespoons of extra virgin coconut oil

How to make the toothpaste

Making the toothpaste is quite easy, simply take all of the ingredients and mix them in a bowl until you get a paste, then place in a small mason jar and keep it at room temperature. Once done, use the obtained paste, or toothpaste after every meal normally like you usually do. The baking soda will whiten your teeth and the coconut oil will kill the bacteria, and just like that, you made a beneficial, cheap, and fully organic toothpaste. ENJOY!
