DIY Whitening Toothpaste | SunKissAlba

Hi Sunshines!

Here is a simple yet very effective way to whiten and clean your teeth daily, without the usual unnecessary toxic/chemical ingredients found in many store bought toothpaste. These are simple ingredients you can fully understand and use safely daily without breaking your wallet. This toothpaste has a minty fresh feeling due to the peppermint essential oil, stain removing power due to baking soda, and a gentle cleanse to lift toxins and tooth buildup with coconut oil. All of these ingredients combined make the best Whitening Toothpaste without harmful ingredients.

{ INFO }

I always make this same amount (1 cup) and it last about 1 month or so. I’ve been using it daily for the past 4-5 months now!

I do not share this toothpaste with anyone else in my household. This is my own personal jar but If my husband were interested in using this toothpaste then I’d make a separate jar just for him :)

I store it in my medicine cabinet and I make a small 1/2 cup batch in a smaller storage jar for traveling. This is such a convenient and healthy way to clean your teeth daily without affecting your pocket or your health.

TOOTH SENSITIVITY? Years ago before knowing anything about health I use to add baking soda to my “store bought” toothpaste everyday and within 2 weeks I began to experience tooth sensitivity on my front teeth. If you have a low calcium level or are aware that you’re not well nourished, and you want to start using a healthier toothpaste like this one that includes baking soda… please do, just start off slowly since you are a beginner. I started off with using this once every 2 days because I knew I use to have teeth sensitivity and then after 2 weeks of use, I began to use it every day and I have not experienced any sensitivity at all :)

Here are other toothpaste brands I have in my home:
