TIP: Essential oils can vary in strength depending on type and brand, so I suggest adding a few drops at a time and testing the toothpaste to get the desired strength you prefer.

This recipe is not like traditional toothpaste so it may take some getting used to. After brushing my teeth for the first time I could tell a difference. My teeth felt much smoother and clean. The smell however is not strong like that of traditional toothpaste. It leaves a more neutralized smell with a hint of peppermint.

I came across many different types of toothpaste recipes with all different ingredients. I wanted to know why and how these ingrediates were used and I thought you might like to also so I have listed what I found below:

    The toothpaste I currently use advertises its high amount of xylitol (a sugar alcohol) for its enamel-strengthening properties. What do you think of using xylitol instead of stevia in this recipe?

    • admin says:

      I do not have any experience with xylitol. According to some research I’ve done it is a natural health benefits and is anti-cariogenic (won’t cause cavities) but it can also have some effects on your gastrointestinal track. I recommend your research and determine what works best for you.
