Next, pour one tablespoon of coconut oil into the blender. Blend it for 12-15 seconds; the mixture will be crumbly. Now take a wooden spoon and run it along the inside edge of the blender, to make sure that all the powder is properly combined with the oil. Add remaining coconut oil and vitamin E in the blender and blend it for another 12- 15 seconds. Take care that the mixture must be in a smooth and creamy texture.
Slow down the speed of the blender and add water into it. Blend it for at least 30 seconds. Your homemade baking soda toothpaste is ready for you. Transfer it to a plastic lid or to a glass container. It will be better to store it into a nontoxic refillable squeeze tube.
