Because it’s way nicer when teeth are white. Because it’s way nicer when the mouth smells good. Because it’s not so nice to have teeth ache. For all those reasons, you need a good toothpaste.
And because when you do it yourself, it is way funnier, less expensive, greener, and on top of it, you know exactly what is in it, here is the recipe for the homemade white clay toothpaste.
(In a other article I will publish soon, I’ll explain why I don’t use industrial toothpaste anymore, even organic; I’ll also explain why I chose white clay, and not baking soda for example).
As usual, before starting anything, please have the kindness to read the foreword; really, it’s important; because homemade cosmetics are fun, but there are still 2 or 3 things you need to know before making them. Well, if you read this blog everyday, no need to re-read it every time ;).
Ingredients for the white clay toothpaste
- 2 table spoon of ultra-ventilated white clay (to know what it is and where to find it, it’s this way – only in French for now)
- One (small) pinch of unrefined table salt
- 3 drops of peppermint essential oil (to know what is it and where to find it, it’s this way – warning: do not use for kids) (you can choose another one, but make sure it is appropriate for mouth cavity)
- A little bit of water
- A little clean container (cleaned in boiling water) (you can also use an old toothpaste tube but you will need a syringe)
- A object of your choice to mix but it should not be made of steel because it kills the properties of clay. Example: a wooden spoon.
How to make the white clay toothpaste
- In the container, mix clay and salt.
- Add some water (just a little tiny bit!) to make a paste (well, like a toothpaste…).
- Mix well, because as for the cakes, not good to have lumps.
- Add the essential oil (not mandatory if you don’t want to or can’t for whatever reason) and mix again.
- And voila, your toothpaste is ready. Easy isn’t it?
How to use the white clay toothpaste
You still need to know a few things:
- This toothpaste won’t make foam, but it doesn’t mean it doesn’t work.
- No need to use a big amount, just a tiny tip is enough (not even pea)
- You can keep this toothpaste in room temperature for 2 month.
Voila, you are now ready to have sparkling teeth thanks to Mother Nature ;).
