Toothpase recipe

You’ll need:

  • A small glass jar
  • 2 tbsp of coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp of baking soda
  • 15 drops of essential oil (peppermint, spearmint and cinnamon are my favourites)

Whip all of the ingredients together in you jar and hey presto! If your coconut oil is too solid sit the jar in a small bowl of hot water to soften and then stir again. To use, simply spoon out a pea sized amount onto your toothbrush and brush away!

Mouthwash recipe

You’ll need:

  • 1 cup of distilled water 
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 1 tsp of xylitol 
  • 5 drops of tea tree oil and 5 drops of peppermint oil
  • optional: a few drops of trace minerals (Higher Nature) 

Throw all of your ingredients into a glass bottle and shake shake shake until they're combined!

(Note: If using for children under 6 omit the peppermint oil in case of accidental ingestion.)
