I'm having fun making my home brews....Here is my toothpaste receipe:

I use a 4 ounce jar and in that jar I start with 2-3 good size dollops of coconut oil and I use organic cold pressed.

To that CO, I had a couple teaspoons of MSM powder (optional).

Some times I add a heaping teaspooon of Diatameous Earth (optional)

Then 5-6 drops of clove oil.

And often a few drops of Myrrh Extract.

Mix it all together and brush away. Leaves teeth and mouth very fresh and clean.

In the hot summer weather, CO often melts so I put in refrig for a while to gel again. We've had horrible heat and I did this a lot....but now cooler so the CO does not melt. J

    One could also add a bit of baking soda to their brew...experiment...some times I open a capsule of grape seed extract and add it to the mix....

    I just rubbed some CO on my knee, do this when I think of it....I use CO for many reasons.

      There is flavourless toothpaste to use when taking homeopathic  remedies.

      Regular use of coffee (including decaffeinated) and mint products (like mint tea, mint toothpaste and mouthwash) will decrease your body’s response to a remedy by about 75%.

    A toothpaste that we SHOULD be swallowing.  I don't know how many times I've told the garndchildren not to swallow Gramdma's toothpaste as its for adults not the kids stuff.

      Soot! Most interesting!

      It reminds me of the days (still in the outback) when we didn't have any cleaning supplies at all and used wood ash to clean pots and the shower walls. 

      Probably similar to your soot, in that's it's the result of burnt material, so antiseptic, as well as being abrasive.

      The wood ash worked like a dream, and they still use it in rural India.

      yes they do...I was there and we did so. Used wood ash as an initial abrasive wipe for the washing up.

      anti septic or increasing of the group biome...so not so harsh ...whereby friendly bacterial organisms are encouraged for all the support they offer beyond the gut  ...in our home surroundings.

    I'd have thought bicobonate of soda was pretty crucial... it has the abrasive quality a toothpaste needs.

    And how about a drop of hydrogen peroxide? Or is that a no-no?

    In my days in the outback when we couldn't buy toothaste, BS with a drop of HP and a hint of mint oil did the trick!
