Want to whiten teeth naturally? Try Sophie Uliano’s DIY Minty Toothpaste recipe.
Sophie Uliano‘s Minty Toothpaste:
2tsp baking soda
2 tsp vegetable glycerin
2tsp hydrogen peroxide
6 drops peppermint essential oil
1/2 tsp xylitol* (powder that you will find in the health food store).
* Sophie adds xylitol in place of the stevia because xylitol has been proven to reduce tooth decay.
In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients together to form a paste.
Spoon it into a small jar or air tight plastic container.
When you are ready to use, you simply scoop out the paste with your toothbrush.
The consistency is quite runny, which I like. If, however, it’s too runny for you, add 1 more tsp of baking soda.
If it’s not sweet enough (especially for kids) add another 1/2 tsp of xylitol.
