We all want to have whiter and stronger teeth. So, oral and dental care is an important routine to achieve our goal. But when it comes to commercial products, even toothpaste can harm you. When we brush our teeth, we can swallow some toothpaste without even noticing. And if you have kids, this could be a huge problem. So, I will offer you an amazing solution with DIY activated charcoal toothpaste.
This DIY toothpaste is natural, healthy and yummy. We will use coconut oil for this amazing recipe. In addition to whiter teeth, you will have softer lips thanks to coconut oil. I think coconut oil is one of the best ingredients you can use in homemade cosmetics and in other areas.
So, when we prepare this recipe, I want it to be kid-friendly. This means, we need to make it taste better. So, I prefer to use peppermint essential oil to add that amazing taste. If your will prepare this DIY activated charcoal toothpaste for adults, you might not add essential oil.
Benefits of Minerals
In this homemade activated charcoal toothpaste recipe, I will take things a bit further. And I will add minerals. These minerals will help us to preserve our oral and dental health. Since kids eat lots of sugar, they are often open for tooth decay. But not with these minerals. In this capsule, we have everything we need: magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and many other trace elements. These minerals will protect their teeth and gum. So, you no longer need to worry about tooth decay or any other gum problems.
Why Do We Use Activated Charcoal?
Activated charcoal has been used by Indians for a long time. Now, this amazing ingredient is number one ingredient to prepare homemade toothpaste. When you use activated charcoal, you teeth will look whiter and stronger.

How to Use Homemade Toothpaste
Like any other toothpaste, you can use this homemade toothpaste 2 times per day. Brush your teeth this this toothpaste in the morning and in the afternoon. 2 minutes will be enough for homemade charcoal to show its amazing benefits.
You can store your DIY activated charcoal toothpaste in a clean cup. When you want to brush your teeth, use a tea spoon and place the toothpaste on your toothbrush. Honestly, I don’t recommend dipping the toothbrush in the mixture.
Because when your toothpaste gets wet, it might lose its consistency. So, always put the toothpaste on the toothbrush.
