I've been making my own toothpaste for a few years. It's cheaper and better than expensive fluoride free toothpaste.
Here's the Recipe
•Coconut oil (unrefined organic)
is antifungal and antibacterial
is a soft abrasive and baking soda is alkaline, which prevents cavities
•Diatomaceous Earth- Food Grade
to mineralize and strengthen teeth. Many toothpastes contain glycerine which blocks teeth from being mineralized.
Draws out toxins and is a natural antibacterial
•Essential oils of your choice: peppermint, spearmint, tea tree
•Filtered water about 1/4 cup
Fill a glass container with water and add a few drops of essential oils.
FYI: Tea tree tastes like listerine and is great for sore throats.
