It will protect their teeth in a natural and health way.
So, you no longer need to worry about the content of the toothpaste you are using for your kid. You will be making your own toothpaste and you will know what you are using in that recipe. This homemade kid toothpaste recipe is extremely easy and you can make super healthy toothpaste just in couple of minutes.

You can use this amazing homemade kid toothpaste twice a day. And make sure that your children are using chemical free toothpaste. Since this is all natural toothpaste and has no preservatives inside, it is important to consume the toothpaste in one or two weeks.
So, you can make small amounts of toothpaste. When you children finish the toothpaste, you can make a new one for them. Also, you can try other essential oils to find the favourite one of your kid.
The important thing to consider when you are making this homemade kid toothpaste is to use wooden or plastic spoon when you are mixing bentonite clay. Bentonite clay is extremely sensitive to metal. If you use metal to mix the clay, bentonite clay will lose all beneficial properties.
Also, the consistency of this homemade kid toothpaste will depend on the ambient temperature. This means that if you are living in a hot climate, the toothpaste will have more like a liquid form. But if you are living in a colder environment, the toothpaste can have more solid like structure. In either way, this homemade kid toothpaste is amazing and healthy for your kids.
