Organic Ayurvedic toothpaste

I know this is a cooking blog, however using cooking ingredients from your kitchen you can make an economical, "tasty" organic toothpaste for the family. You can change the spices to give a different flavor to the paste or to use for different doshas. You can use mint for pitta- it control inflammations- cinnamon for Vatta and ginger for Kapha. The ingredients on this recipe are antibacterial, anti fungal and antiviral.
Complement your oral cleaning with sesame oil pulling. To do this practice take 3 tsp of sesame oil in your mouth and move it all around your mouth for 5 to 10 minutes, then spit the oil.

1 cup of organic coconut oil
3 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp stevia powder- you can use also honey instead.
2 tsp orange peal powder
1 tsp pomegranate powder
1 tsp Neem powder.
1/2 tsp triphala powder.
1/2 tsp  pink salt.
3 drops of mint essential oil or mint powder.- or use the spice of your choice for taste.

Mix all the ingredients in the coconut oil until forming a thick paste. Store it in a glass jar in the bathroom. Use as a regular toothpaste.
