If you are worried about whats in your toothpaste you can make your own and then you will know what's in it. I have to admit I found this a tad salty, but it surely cleaned my teeth well. I used coconut oil in mine, it tasted nice.

Prep:

5 Min

Ingredients

1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
sea salt (finely ground)
1
drop-peppermint, spearmint, sweet orange, coconut, or cinnamon bark essence oil
a few drops of filtered tap water
1/8 tsp
xylitol (ground up fine, this is optional, xylitol won't harm your teeth)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
I put the dry ingredients in my magic bullet to make sure it was finely ground. It worked perfect. Then I put it in a small dish and mixed the liquids.
2
You should get a thick, smooth paste. It shouldn't be runny since it has to stay on your toothbrush.
3
Dip the tooth brush in the paste and use it as you would use any toothpaste.
4
Enjoy!
