Warm water/aloe mixture up a bit

Once beeswax has melted complete, take it off the stove and allow to cool to a temp close to the water temp. Or Warm the water to the oil temp.

Place oil in blender and add 1 vitamin e capsule

Turn blender on med-high and when the liquid turns cloudy add essential oils and half the water, it will begin to solidify and you must quickly add the rest of the water before it fully congeals.

D.I.Y. Toothpaste
makes 1/4 cup

  • 6 tablespoons baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons salt (play around with this for some the salt is too much)
  • 2 tablespoons glycerin or unrefined coconut oil + stevia powder (glycerin is sweet so if you sub it for coconut oil go for some stevia powder to sweeten the toothpaste)
  • 10-20 drops peppermint, melaleuca, cinnamon, wild orange, or Protective essential oil (or a combo of one or two) Wild Orange is best for kids while Protective Blend or Melaleuca is great for gum issues and peppermint helps with the taste.
