Don’t worry if you can’t choose from the toothpaste brands available in stores. Instead of buying one, why don’t you create your own toothpaste?

With the right ingredients and consistency, creating homemade toothpaste is possible. Not only can you achieve healthy and white teeth, you can also save a lot of money.

To make toothpaste, you only need baking soda, sea salt and peppermint. Mix these ingredients observing the right proportions, using hot water to blend all of them. Gradually stir the mixed ingredients in a bowl to get the right consistency. You may also add a different flavor if you don’t like peppermint.

Once you are done, place it in a tube so you can save them for future use. If you don’t have one, use a large bottle. Just scoop the toothpaste each time you use it.

The good thing about using homemade toothpaste is that it doesn’t contain all the unhealthy chemicals used in commercial brands. Take note that some of them have been proven to be detrimental. For instance, the microbeads that were present in various toothpastes in the past were already banned.

They were deemed bad for the environment. Others also contain Triclosan. They might be effective in whitening the teeth, but they could damage the enamel and weaken the teeth in the long run.
Now that you understand the importance of making homemade toothpaste, it is time to give it a try. Other tips on maintaining sparkling white teeth can be found on the infographic below.
