The Day I Stopped Using Toothpaste

Yup, I Becky, AKA the Quirky Urban Girl, no longer uses toothpaste!  After reading about all the harmful chemicals in toothpaste I decided to get into my way back machine and make my own.

Very simple ingredients

1/2 cup baking soda
1/4 cup coconut oil
peppermint extract to taste
stevia to taste.

Mix it all up and put it in a jar. scoop a little bit onto your toothbrush and that's it.

I will admit that it took some getting use to. It has a very bitter taste and does not bubble up at all.  I am not sure that I will use it forever but I am giving it a shot for now.  It's easy enough to make and I know what all the ingredients are.


  1. Definitely let me know how you like this. I tried it with a recipe that used baking soda and peroxide with a little coconut oil. I never made more after I used it up because I felt like my teeth were getting too sensitive. I will probably try again but for now I am back to my Jasons toothpaste.

    1. I am not sold on it yet. I don't like the taste or the aftertaste at all. I may try Jasons too.
