New Flavour for our Natrual Toothpaste

During Sukkot last year,
Pamela @ HomeShalom shared with me some
wonderful flavors to add to my home
made tooth paste.
 So this evening I was whipping together another 
batch of toothpaste using baking soda and coco oil
I added the two oil based edible flavors to
my toothpaste.  And I'm happy to 
report that my girls, who normally gag
using the homemade toothpaste gave a 
happy thumbs up as they both
were actually brushing their teeth with
pleasant countenance, both not just one!


What are these flavors that brought about such
a positive change in my girls
you might ask.

The flavors I add were,
orange and clove
flavorings with a few
packs of Stevia to add some sweetness

I usually don't measure out my ingredients to make
toothpaste so I don't have a 'recipe' . When I first started
making toothpaste I just Google toothpaste recipe and
there were several pages to choose from. 


  1. Oh good! I am so glad the girls like it! :-)

    Will you please tell me what your concerns with Stevia are.

    I have the hankering to try lime and vanilla next time. I'll let you know how it goes.

  2. We ok I love making homemade toothpaste! :)

  3. Pamela, sorry my bad it isn't 'Stevia' I've stopped using it was Truvia... I've remove the statement from my post. You can Google harmful effects of Truvia to find out more about it :-)

    oh vanilla and lime sound great!!

  4. Oh good! Because we use Stevia (and have grown it before)...I just wanted to know if there was something I needed to know! :-)

    We have also used Xylilotol too....but....I'm not real sure about that one. I am not sure that I trust it, even though it is sold as a "health food alternative".
