Homemade Toothpaste

Many people ask me, "Can I make my own toothpaste?" and the answer is "Yes, certainly you can". Here are few tips for you, and you may choose whichever you find best suitable for you.
Take 1½ tablespoon of baking soda, 2½ tablespoon of dried lemon peel (or you may use dried orange peel of same amount), 1 teaspoon of salt. Now process all the ingredients into a food processor till you get them blended as a fine powder. Put it in a jar with lid. Wet your brush and dip into the powder and brush!
If you want the above in a paste form, mix it with ¼ teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide and make the paste. Brush as usual.
Take one tablespoon of baking soda and mix it with ¼ teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide. Now add 1 drop of peppermint oil into it. Mix it thoroughly to make a paste. Brush!
