Looking to make your own toothpaste? We've been using this recipe in our house for over a year now and it is awesome, though the baking soda taste can take a little getting used to.

2 Tbsp Coconut oil
3 Tbsp baking soda
a pinch of Stevia powder.
Essential oil to taste (10-20 drops)

Melt or soften the coconut oil if necessary, mix in remaining ingredients. Store in a small lidded jar (I use a 4 oz canning jar). 

Not all essential oils are safe to ingest so use only oils from common culinary sources like peppermint, spearmint, sage, rosemary, orange, lemon, and lime.

After using this for 6 months, my dentist said my teeth are in the best shape she's ever seen them.  When I told her what I was doing differently, she said it goes against everything the ADA (American Dental Association) tells them... Imagine that!
