|1. Gather ingredients and put Baking Soda and Stevia in a small bowl.|
|2. Add coconut oil and Peppermint Essential Oil.|
|3. Fold ingredients together.
(At first it didn’t seem like the ingredients were going to combine, don’t worry they will just keep folding!)
|4. Once you have a creamy consistency transfer to a resealable air tight container. Store in bathroom at room temperature.|
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.
