Go to your kitchen. Every kitchen has a stock of salad leaves. The stock of salad leaves is never complete without mint leaves. You could use peppermint, spearmint or simple mint. Take a large bowl and fill it up with water. Shred the mint leaves and then, put the bowl on your oven. Bring the water and leaves mixture to boil. Having boiled for a few minutes let it simmer until the liquid boils down to half of it. After it is cooled, take a big strainer and strain the mixture to separate water and the leaves. Throw away the leaves and put aside the potion.
Next, take some baking soda. If you want to have toothpaste, add only a spoonful of it to the water. But if you want to make a toothpaste, add a little of the potion to the baking soda to make a paste. After you have added baking soda, there is another option.
The goodness of sea salt is widely known and acknowledged. Its use is multifarious and is widely used in cosmetics and skin care herbals products. For additional goodness in the toothpaste, add a little sea salt to it. Stir the mixture well so that the salt dissolves completely in the mixture and the mouthwash is ready.
If you have made toothpaste, do not throw away the mint water. You can warm up a little at a time and drink it as mint water tea which is great for your digestive system. The toothpaste can be stored for a long time. But if you have made a mouthwash, do not store it for more than a week. Since this is preservative free, it is not recommended to be stored for a time longer than that.
