Make your own Toothpaste (Suprisingly Yummy!)

When we started the project there were few things we feared more then the day our toothpaste would run out.  Well, it didn’t take long, and after a bit of tinkering we have come up with a winning toothpaste recipe that is both fairly tasty, and healthy for teeth and gums.  A couple of notes on the toothpaste:

1. Toothpaste is perhaps a misnomer, it is more of a tooth solid, you will need to scoop it out with a spoon (very important – do not use your toothbrush, our friends at the local dentist office said it can lead to nasty bacterial build-up).

2. The toothpaste isn’t foamy like the stuff from the tube, but it leaves your mouth feeling really clean, and the cinnamon gives it a nice taste.

3. We use some essential oils to make your mouth feel fresh.  We sourced out some organic essential oils, but the are not meant for internal use, so as tasty as the toothpaste is, it won’t make for a good snack – please do not eat the toothpaste.

You can find the recipe on our blog here, and check out our video below!  Please let us know how you like it, and feel free to experiment, we would love to hear the flavor combinations you come up with!

  1. Hi there. Kudos on your project! I sent you an email message a few weeks ago, but maybe it was eaten by your spam filter. I keep seeing your videos and blogs showing up in my Google alert for “plastic free” (which happens to be the title of my book) and I wanted to introduce myself and connect up. I would also love to know more about your project, where you’re located, what successes you’ve had. I don’t see any archives list on your blog, so it’s hard to read your older posts.

    I’ve added your blog to my Plastic-Free blogroll to help other people find you, but I’m not sure where you are in the world geographically, so I just put it under “USA.” Please let me know if that’s wrong:

    I write the blog and am the author of the new book “Plastic-Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too”. I thought it might be a great resource for you in your journey since it is full of 5-years worth of collected knowledge about living plastic-free as well as tips from many of the readers of my blog. It’s the book I wish had existed 5 years ago when I first started my plastic-free project, so I’m guessing it could be helpful to you.

    Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself. There is a growing community of plastic-free bloggers and it’s great for us all to connect up. Hope to hear from you.
