For the past couple of weeks, since I’ve ordered my Peppermint Essential Oil (to chase away the pesky mice. Don’t ask.), the smell has been lingering throughout the house and makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. I feel like Christmas is here! Yay!
I love all things peppermint!
The smell also got my mind a churnin’… “This stuff smells a lot like it does when I brush my teeth. I KNOW!! How about I try making a toothpaste!? It can’t be too complex to make on my own.”
So, ladies and gentleman, I give to you…
My very own toothpaste concoction:
- ½ cup of coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons of Baking Soda
- a few drops of peppermint essential oil
- a jar to dip your toothbrush into (I used a thin, squeezable bottle that I had stored in the bathroom cupboard.)
- Combine all ingredients in jar.
- That’s it!
