I’m addicted to fluoride (particularly stannous fluoride, recommended by many dentists) and fearful of going without it. However, there are several alternatives, to store-bought toothpaste, that are healthy thrifty, and just plain good. This is a good one to alternate between brushing with the star-bought stuff

from clean living, sep.'17

This is my new favorite (but there are many others)

  • 3tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp Calcium powder
  • 1 tbsp kaolin clay
  • 1 tbsp xylitol (an artificial sweetener)
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 30 drops peppermint oil
  • 15 drops spearmint oil
  1. In a small jar, add calcium, clay sweetener and backing soda, stir until combined
  2. Add coconut oil, and mint oils. Stir until you get a smooth paste.
  3. place bought 1/4 tsp of this toothpaste onto your brush using a clean spoon (yo uno not want to contaminate the jar of paste witty dipping a used toothbrush into it). Brush your teeth as usual and spit into a trashcan...remember coconut oil is a solid at room temperature..it may congeal and clog your pipes.
  4. rinse brush under hot water...and smile!.
