Homemade Toothpaste...

Mandi and I will not use toothpaste with fluoride in it. We can't find any fluoride free toothpaste in Elkins for less than eight bucks a tube. So we decided to start making are own. It is the best most effective toothpaste I have ever used.

The Recipe: 6 teaspoons of baking soda
1/2 tsp. of salt
4 tsp. of vegetable glycerin
15 drops of essential oil (tee tree, peppermint, spearmint, etc)

The first batch we made up we used tee tree oil because that was all we had on hand. Tee tree is an awesome antiseptic but it tastes horrible. The most recent batch was made with peppermint and it tastes fabulous.
