Green Dentistry Week: Homemade Toothpaste
Small changes made to our daily habits can add up. This week, with help from the Eco-Dentistry Association, we'll provide tips to help you green your dental hygiene routine.
Tip #3: Make Your Own
Store-bought toothpaste can include some questionable ingredients and it's easy to concoct your own paste with a few simple ingredients. Baking soda is central to most DIY recipes. Adjust flavor and texture by adding peppermint oil, spearmint oil, cinnamon, or salt. Care2 offers a good basic toothpaste recipe to get you started. Make your own rinse with these mouthwash recipes from Planet Green.
