To make homemade toothpaste, mix together equal parts coconut oil and baking soda. Add a few drops of peppermint essential oils for a crisp, minty flavor. The baking soda will help keep your teeth white and coconut oil really polishes the surface of the teeth to make them pearl white and shiny.
Dip your brush into the mixture and brush your teeth as you normally would. Rinse your mouth with water or mouthwash thoroughly. Give your toothbrush a thorough rinse as well. Baking soda is a great mild abrasive that effectively removes surface stains from your teeth and make them appear whiter while coconut oil is a unique, old, remedy that people swear by to help whiten teeth.
