DIY Your Own Toothpaste Just Like Shailene Woodley

SiriusXM's Entertainment Weekly Radio Special With The Cast Of "Divergent"

Here she is with her teeth in action.

Shailene Woodley, the new Hollywood It-girl and star of Divergent(2014) makes her own toothpaste because she’s into herbalism , lucid dreaming and other cute hippy dippy stuff. She’s charming as charming could be. Look out, Jennifer Lawrence.

Woodley divulged some of the ingredients for her special DIY toothpaste formula of Late Night with Seth Meyers (video below). She uses coconut oil, essential oils, and herbs, but the main component is clay. Clay happens to be an ingredient I have made little dreidels out of so that dreidel I could play. There’s even a song about it.

According to the actress, “the kicker” with her toothpaste concoction is that you swallow it after you brush for “a daily dose of medicine.” Brewing up your own toothpaste isn’t really something Seth Meyers or I seem particularly into, but hey, I’m the kind of jerk that’s fine with cleaning my teeth with Tom’s and spitting it into the drain with all the debris from my mouth. I’d never survive after the apocalypse. If you do want to DIY your oral hygiene products. We found a few recipes for you.

Here are 5 DIY toothpaste recipes if you want to be an all natural badass like Shailene Woodley:

Here’s the video of Ms Woodley and Seth Meyers, toothpaste chatter starts around 3:00.

      I will take my carcinogenic Aquafresh Extreme Clean to my grave.

        Seriously, there are some products I am not down to DIY. For example: toothpaste and anything I put on my face-skin.

        Really? There’s some face scrubs you can make at home that actually work better like cinnamon and honey and turmeric if you wanted to add it.

        Yeah, DIY face stuff just not for me! I think it’s rad that other people are into it.

        Aw you really need to try homemade soap! It’s so much better for you than storebought stuff! I’ll send you some :)

      If DIY toothpaste is too much effort at least look into some healthy options. Living Libations makes amazing oral care products as does toothsoap. Have you ever read the warning labels on most drug store brand toothpaste. I am not down to use any product in my mouth that states it is not safe to swallow. Both of the brands I mentioned provide IMHO superior oral care and are safe to swallow unlike your Aquafresh.
