Over the last year I have been trying to convince my husband that we should no longer buy high street toothpaste because of the amount of plastic and fluoride they contain and make our own instead. Each time I approached the subject his face literally said it all with the reply “Emma I will try nearly everything you suggest but I will not clean my teeth with any homemade toothpaste.” (But this did not keep me from bring up the subject every now and again.)
So I had a brainwave just cos hubby won’t try it, what’s stopping me from giving homemade toothpaste and mouthwash ago. After trying lots and I mean lots of different recipes on the wide world web (nearly being sick with some of them) I finally found a nice tasting recipe. I have been using this toothpaste for a month now and one of the things I have noticed is my teeth are whiter and my gums look healthier. So I think its time I introduced my homemade toothpaste to my children and then try the subject with hubby again.
What is your favorite toothpaste and mouthwash recipe?
