Ok… after talking about it I made some and I like it 🙂 Coconut oil has anti-bacterial qualities and there are many recipes around for the paste which also uses baking soda. I posted a couple of days ago on using Turmeric as a tooth whitener/polisher (which is very effective) and someone suggested I try it in the toothpaste.
3 good tablespoons coconut oil, softened
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp tumeric
Whisk all together well until thick, well combined and creamy. Store in sterile jar. Use on a dry toothbrush and brush gently for a minute over a basin of water (It’s messy)
This doesn’t taste bad. It has a mild flavour, the turmeric takes the edge off the baking soda but is not over powering. Apologies for the poor picture quality (will replace at some stage!)
