This is the recipe I use:

 

- 2/3 cup baking soda

- 2 tbsp. peppermint extract

- 2-3 tsp. sea salt

- Mix with water to desired consistency

 

When I made this the first time a month ago, it turned out perfect and not too salty. I made it again this morning, 3 batches worth, and it tastes so salty I can barely use it. I must have used less salt the first time, I also used different peppermint this time (to avoid food coloring). Well anyway..  I didn't want to waste it so I kept adding baking soda and water, and that didn't help the taste. Then I went online trying to find out what I could add to lessen the salt taste. Some people add coconut oil so I added that...  it is still to salty. Does anyone know what I could do to this so I don't have to throw the whole bowl out? I even tried adding vanilla extract  lol.

 

Or does anyone have any not-too-salty toothpaste recipes? I really liked this one but I can't figure out what I did right the first time. confused.gif

I couldn't figure out how to delete this thread but I managed to fix the issue. (I had to make more batches without salt and mix in)
