Homemade Toothpaste

I been wanting to make a homemade toothpaste but I never actually look on how to mix it. I wanted to use food grade peroxide and baking soda. I finally did some research and found how to do it. Off course, you need to mix the food grade peroxide with distilled water safe enough to use at home. Then take enough baking soda to last at least a week. Gradually add the peroxide mixture like make a paste like mixture and a drop of peppermint oil. Not only it makes your teeth white, it help prevent cavities too.

I don't have any store bought toothpaste for a week now. I am a coffee drinker and my teeth are already starting to look stained. This toothpaste will bring back the white in my smile. By the way, I have to keep the toothpaste in the fridge, because I'm not sure how long this last in room temperature. It's a little cold the first time it touches my teeth, but the outcome is phenomenal.

I looked for toothpaste tube to put them in, but all I can find are aluminum plastic. As you all know, aluminum is not good for human consumption. I stick them in a small jar, I will keep looking but until then, my toothpaste will have to stay in the jar inside the fridge.
