Here goes the recipe for a homemade toothpaste. It’s very easy to do, the hardest part is to get all the ingredients. But we’ve found all of them in Covilhã, so it shouldn’t be a problem to get them anywhere else.
white clay – 8 spoons
liquid glycerine – 4 spoons
mint essential oil – 1 coffee spoon
clove essential oil – 1/2 coffee spoon
distilled water – 12 spoons
fennel or ginger in powder – a pinch
baking soda – 1/2 coffee spoon
Mix all the ingredients and wash your teeth. It’s that easy. You can adapt the recipe, using other essential oils, leaving out baking soda, adding more or less distilled water, etc. After trying this recipe you will never buy toothpaste again.
