1. 2/3 cup baking soda
2. 1 tsp fine sea salt (optional – direct application of the minerals in sea salt is great for teeth, but can be left out if the taste is too salty)
3. 1 – 2 tsp peppermint extract or 10-15 drops peppermint essential oil (or add your favorite flavor – spearmint, orange, etc.)
4. filtered water (add to desired consistency)
1. Mix together baking soda, salt (optional), and essential oil. Add a little water at a time, stirring after each addition, until paste reaches desired consistency.
*Each batch yields the equivalent of one 5.3 oz tube of toothpaste which you can store in a small storage container. When you are ready to brush, simply wet your toothbrush, scoop or spread as much paste as you like, and begin brushing.
