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.

How To Make easy home made toothpaste

  • 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.
