DIY Toothpaste MCT Version

Toothpaste.jpg

There are literally hundreds of different toothpastes out there, most of which contain questionable ingredients. I am letting you know that the easiest way to avoid all of the dubious ingredients in toothpaste is to just say no. That is correct-toothpaste is completely optional. That said, I do prefer to use it. My favorite DIY version that I personally make and use requires no measuring! Here is the recipe:

Ingredients

(Widely Available Online)

  • one glass jar

  • MCT Oil

  • Xylitol

  • A Blender or food processor

  • Peppermint Oil

  • Calcium Carbonate

ANY Suitable container with a cover, preferably glass

Step 1

Measure out a small amount of Xylitol (half of your container should be more than enough)

Pour your xylitol into a blender

Step 3

Blend the xylitol into powder so it looks like confectioner’s sugar

Step 4

Pour the MCT oil into your container so it takes up about half of the container

Step 5

Place a few drops of peppermint oil into the container with the MCT oil until it tastes minty enough for you
