NOT SO BORING Tasty Toothpaste!! (Toxic Free)

As I have ventured into the lovely world of healthy living I noticed that most people who make their own toothpaste, live in toothpaste boredom. Baking Soda is wonderful, but it's just not right to brush with what feels and tastes like salt and...... the crumbles, ugh... I don't like the crumbles! It just crumbles right out of your mouth making a lovely mess, to add to my mess. I have seen it made with coconut oil, but that too is just crumbly.

So I was reading something a while back regarding cancer patients and natural remedies for treating mouth thrush and it said to brush with Olive Oil! Like coconut oil, olive oil is naturally antibacterial. So I quickly realized this was the answer to my Soda Crumble Crisis!!
But then about the taste... Well reading on I saw a toothpaste they preferred. I was looking at the ingredients and noticed it contains Stevia! YES!! (Stevia is not GAPS legal for consumption)

So I'm very proud to present to you a toothpaste that every person in your family will love. My son prefers it over store brands, I didn't even have to hide his other toothpaste! He just loves it!

Not So Boring Toothpaste

1/3 Cup Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil 

 3/4 Cup Organic Baking Soda
1/4 Tsp Stevia Extract                                                         

10 Drops Spearmint/Peppermint/Cinnamon Essential Oils 
Combine all ingredients and feel free to venture to a different consistency, I myself like the toothpaste consistency! Put in your choice of container. I used plastic this time, but will be using glass or a tin of some kind next time. Here is a great BPA Free Option too!

NEWBIE TIP: Always purchase your olive oil "cold compressed" and if possible from a California source as they have strict quality and safety regulations! :)

Grace, Peace, and Health in Christ!
