LuSa Organics Homeade Toothpaste

A really great recipe was brought to my attention last night and I knew right away I wanted to share it with you all.  For those of you who are concerned with fluoridated toothpaste, you will love this.  

Although our son's current toothpaste is made without fluoride, making it from scratch with these ingredients would be even better!  

I can't wait to try it out!

LuSa Organics Homemade Toothpaste
2 tsp Natural Liquid Soap (try unscented Dr. Bronner's or similar. We've used our bar soap grated into water but it makes too thick of a toothpaste for my squeeze bottle.)
4 Tb Coconut Oil
1 Tb Water
2 Tb Xylitol (optional)-I would not use this ingredient
1/2 tsp Stevia powder
10-20 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
5-10 drops Spearmint or Sweet Orange Essential Oil
Boil a small pan of water. Measure out 1 Tb and stir into it Xylitol (optional). Stir to dissolve. Melt coconut oil and add to water mixture. Measure in soap and stevia and blend (a stick blender works well if you have one. Otherwise use your regular blender or whisk by hand like mad).  Blend while the formula cools enough to stay combined. Add essential oils and transfer to a clean squeeze or pump bottle. Cool completely, shake well.
