Homemade All Natural Toothpaste

The typical store bough toothpaste contains numerous harmful chemicals and unpronounceable ingredients.  Including saccharin (unnatural sweetener), sodium lauryl sulfate (a foaming agent used in soaps), and artificial flavor to cover up the terrible taste that the chemicals create.  Below is a recipe for natural homemade toothpaste that is easy to make and more effective than any store bought toothpastes.

6 tablespoons coconut oil , 6 tablespoons baking soda, cinnamon or other natural ingredient for flavor, and 1/4 teaspoon of stevia (more if you like it sweeter).

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl and pour into a container.  Use like regular toothpaste.
