The beauty to this recipe is that it only includes natural ingredients, and doesn’t include fluoride. Not only that, but you’ll have a go to present for your health conscious friends and family. All you need are four ingredients; Coconut Oil, Baking Soda, Peppermint Extract, and Hydrogen Peroxide. You’ll also need some basic materials, but we’ll get to that a bit later.
How To Pick Ingredients For Ayurvedic Toothpaste
The first step to making your own Ayurvedic Toothpaste is picking out a good brand of Coconut Oil. If you’re like me, you go through a ton of it, so grab a large sized bottle. I’ve tried a ton of different coconut oils and found what works best for me, but, that’s part of the fun. So I try different kinds until you find a texture and taste you like. Try to pick out an oil that cycles well, meaning, one that sells out its stock fairly regularly. A good way to do that is to find a top seller on amazon, so you’re not using an oil that’s gone rancid.
The next step in building your own Ayurvedic Toothpaste is to pick out a baking soda you like. Most people reach for Arm and Hammer, but, honestly, they’re all the same. That’s because its all just pure harvested trona. Top brands may have tighter tolerances, however, so do your research.
Peppermint Extract is the next ingredient you’ll need, and really, they’re all pretty similar. I found one I like pretty early on. But I’ve seen have to try a few different brands to find a level of potency and freshness that they find comfortable.
The last ingredient you’ll need will be hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen Peroxide is strictly regulated, so when you buy one, you’ve bought them all. The only difference is in labeling and origin.
Making Ayurvedic Toothpaste
Now that you have all of your ingredients picked out, it’s time to start making your own. You can mix it in a few different ways, I personally use a mortar and pestle, so I would recommend that, but you can also use a mixing bowl and whisk or spoon.
The next part will take a bit of experimentation on your part as the different ingredients you’ll use will alter your recipe considerably. Generally, you’ll want to use 2/3 to 1/3 Oil to baking soda ratio. If you want whitening action, add a little bit of hydrogen peroxide, but be warned, it tastes like crap!
After you have your After you have your mixture ready, it’s time to start adding your peppermint extract. This final step will help you mask the bland flavor of the paste you’ve created so far. If you don’t mind the taste, add less, if you really can’t stand the taste, add more
Finally, whisk (or pestle) thoroughly, until you’ve reached a consistency similar to toothpaste. Then jar, label, and enjoy. See? Easy! Now start making your own little jar of Ayurveda
