Store bought toothpastes are full of poisons and sugar! Making your own toothpaste is simple and much more effective.
Your teeth will be cleaner. Your smile will be brighter and whiter.
Your breath will be fresher, like all day and night fresher.
To be honest, I forget to brush my teeth somedays. Without the smell of death and the furry feeling that always came when I brushed with store bought toothpaste, it slips my mind. Weird, I know!
I'm going to show you how I make my "Ogre Toothpaste". I call it that because i use Bentonite Clay, which gives it a light green color.
If you don't have Bentonite Clay you can still make a wonderful toothpaste.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Ingredients You Will Need
Small container with lid
Spoon- if you have a small and big spoon in your drawer pick the smaller one.
Hydrogen Peroxide 3%- The normal stuff you get from the drug store. (IF, for some reason, you must swallow your toothpaste after you brush, then use food grade peroxide.)
Baking Soda- The everyday box in your kitchen cabinet that u bake with. NOT the kind packaged special for the refrigerater/freezer.
Coconut Oil- Virgin,cold pressed, unrefined
Apple Cider Vinegar- Unpasteurized, unfiltered
Bentonite Clay- available at health food stores. It has wonderful healing and toxin gathering properties.
Step 2: Ogre Toothpaste
With your spoon scoop into empty container:
3 scoops Baking Soda
2 scoops Bentonite Clay
2 scoops Coconut oil
mix ( my spoon broke so I had to get a new one)
add 3 spoons of Hydrogen Peroxide
1/4 cap Apple Cider Vinegar
keep adding baking soda slowly to fix any separation. you will see that the paste looks grainy and kind of bubbles. Keep adding Baking Soda.
now add Peppermint Oil. if you like alot, put alot. If you dont, then put a little. I added 6 drops.
Step 3: Brush Your Teeth
Step 4: Take a Towel and Wipe Your Tongue!
Your tongue will need to be wiped off. There will be captured bacteria in the clay that is left on your tongue.
Rinse your mouth with water.
Now, run your clean tongue all over your clean teeth. Feels good huh?
Thanks for Lookin, then doin, and Lovin!
