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!
