DIY Whitening Charcoal Toothpaste

Finding a good organic toothpaste is easy but they can get expensive. I also noticed that most of them are minty – too minty in fact! To switch things up, I made a charcoal toothpaste that is not minty but does a great job in keeping me fresh even hours after I brush. Check it out.

I love that I finally found a recipe that allows me to clean my teeth but not get overpowered by the minty taste! Also, I love knowing exactly what I am putting into my body and allowing it to absorb.

Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal is used in this recipe to keep your mouth happy and healthy! It is great not only for oral health but can also help improve the appearance of your teeth by naturally whitening them!

Fractionated Coconut Oil

Fractionated Coconut Oil is used in this recipe to dilute the essential oil and allow it to be safe to be put in your mouth.

Pine Essential Oil

Pine Essential Oil has a woody and pine aroma which is different than most kinds of toothpaste! It also helps support a healthy respiratory tract* which is an indirect benefit of this recipe!
