We spend a lot of money every year on products that we use daily. I love finding ways to make my own, not only to save money but to share the satisfaction with my kids that we can make these important things.
Here's a great recipe for something that each person in the family uses every single day. Not only is it super simple and cheap to make, it is also free from any chemicals or questionable ingredients.
So this can be a really fun project to do with your kids.... make their own toothpaste! And that just may make them more excited to brush their teeth! A win-win for everyone!
3 Tbs of Coconut Oil
3 Tbs of Baking Soda
25 drops of Peppermint Oil
1 Packet of Stevia
2 Tsp Vegetable Glycerine
Mix together the baking soda and the coconut oil. Mix in the remainder of the ingredients to form a paste. Store in a small jar for each person in the family.
