Toothpaste is on my still-not-out-cuz-i-bought-it-at-sams list, and I have to admit I kinda was planning on just buying it from Tom's of Maine. I guess making toothpase (and deodorant too) kinda intimidated me. You'd think it'd be the other way around, when you consider the stuff they put in them, but they're both such an integral part of hygiene in this society. It'd really stink to mess it up... literally.
But, one of my readers asked me about it and I had not only already found a recipe, but I already had all the supplies I needed, so I gave it a shot!
Recipe (can be multiplied or divided to suit your needs)
3 Tbsp Baking Soda
1 Tbsp Salt
1/4 c. Glycerin
A couple drops of Peppermint (or whatever flavor suits you) Extract (NOT Essential Oil) *optional
You need to use baking extracts, not essential oils, to flavor it because essential oils are for external use only.
