How To Make Homemade Waste-Free Toothpaste

Making your own toothpaste is the easiest thing ever. I know what you're thinking - but I promise you your breath will be fresh, your gums clean and your teeth blinding - and you'll also avoid producing a lot of non-recyclable plastic waste. 

All you need is -

1/2 cup of coconut oil 

2/3 tablespoons of baking soda

20 drops of edible peppermint essential oil or cinnamon essential oil

A pinch of natural sweetener to taste (optional)

Mix them all together in an up-cycled glass jar, pop it in the fridge et voila! You're ready to brush.
