Homemade Toothpaste

6 tbsp coconut oil
6 tbsp baking soda
25 drops essential oil (we like peppermint) 
4 tbsp xylitol (or more if you like it sweeter for the kids)

I don't use the xylitol in the mixture for me and my husband. I've gotten used to the taste, but it's pretty gross for kids at first so the xlylitol makes it taste fantastic for them. You can get organic xylitol from birch trees on amazon or a health food store. If you find xylitol in little granulated crystals you can job pop them into your blender for a quick spin and it makes it is to a very fine powder that is great for the toothpaste. I make a batch about every 6 weeks and keep it in this container. We just scoop it out with the toothbrush head.
