homemade remineralizing toothpaste

So, maybe you know about our efforts to go more granola.
Like homemade hairspray or diy deodorant.
And now we are on to homemade remineralizing toothpaste!
It's easy and while it might take a couple days to adjust to the taste, it's really quite tasty.
Completely healthy with no additives.
And the best part?
Actually cures cavities.
No. Joke.
Just give it a try and see.

ps- my boys love it.

Homemade Remineralizing Toothpaste
Makes a small tub...I'd say equivalent to a tube.
5 tablespoons calcium carbonate...found here
2 tablespoons baking soda
2 tablespoons stevia...totally optional but it takes the slight bitter taste out
3-5 tablespoons organic coconut oil, warmed until it reaches it's liquid state
Essential oils, to taste...we use peppermint, orange, clove is great for a slight numbing if you have sensitive teeth too

Mix the calcium carbonate, baking soda, and stevia in a small bowl.
Slowly whisk in coconut oil, a tablespoon at a time until you reach your desired consistency.
Add 5-15 drops of your preferred essential oils, to taste.
Taste a bit on your tongue and add more oils or stevia to taste!
That's it!
*Just scoop some out with your toothbrush or popsicle stick.
