DIY Coconut And Cacao Toothpaste
The more natural products you can incorporate into your lifestyle the better! Why… because it decreases your toxic load which lessens the load on your liver (your main detoxifying organ).
This is a great option instead of using regular toothpaste which Triona from Wendyls has created – even her 13-year-old Son uses it from time to time without grimacing! “It’s taken me about a year of trialing different blends to come up with this one. I love the addition of Cacao Butter as it gives the toothpaste a slightly chocolate flavour that goes really well with the Peppermint Essential Oil. Also, the Cacao keeps the paste from going too runny in the summer months”.
Coconut and Cacao Toothpaste
- 70g Coconut Oil
- 30g Cacao Butter
- 1Tbl Hemp Seed Oi
- 320g Wendyl’s Premium Baking Soda (not man-made as it’s toxic)
- 1.5 – 2ml Peppermint Essential Oil to taste
In a glass bowl over hot but not boiling water melt the Cacao Butter and Coconut Oil, stir to combine, take off the heat and sift in the Baking Soda. Stir again, then add the Hemp Seed Oil and Peppermint Essential Oil, make sure you’ve combined all ingredients, then pour into a glass jar. I put a little wooden spoon into ours so it’s easy to scoop out onto your brush. This will be firmer in winter and softer in summer. * I wouldn’t give this to small children, and if you have any questions ask your Dentist. **There is no fluoride in this mix
