I'm curious to know about your experience. I found this recipe on Wellness Mama wellnessmama.com/1772/natural-toothpaste/. It looks like a reasonable choice. It would be great if there was one I could put in a hand soap type bottle with a pump dispenser. I don't like the idea of dipping my toothbrush into a jar of toothpaste.
½ cup coconut oil 2-3 TBSP baking soda 2 small packets stevia powder 15-20 drops peppermint essential oil (or cinnamon essential oil) 10 drops myrrh essential oil (optional) Instructions Melt or slightly soften the coconut oil. Mix in other ingredients and stir well. If you are using a semi-hard coconut oil, use a fork, if not, use a spoon. If you are using completely melted coconut oil, you will need to stir several times while the mixture cools to keep the baking soda incorporated.
Homemade Tooth Soap Recipe: Ingredients: 4 tsp Dr. Bronner's unscented or peppermint liquid castile soap 1/2 cup melted coconut oil 1 to 2 tsp Slim Sweet, xylitol (cavity preventing) or Stevia (all have no adverse effects on the teeth) 20 to 30 drops peppermint, spearmint, cinnamon, clove (helps with gingivitis and sensitivity) or sweet orange essential oils Instructions: 1.In a small pan, boil a small amount of water. 2. In a food processor or blender, add 2 Tbl of the boiled water, sweetener, coconut oil, soap and essential oil. Blend until frothy. 3. Pour into a clean lotion dispenser.
Plain baking soda is what ive used since the late 1980s. Tooth paste started making me sick to my stomach. I tried every brand available. The organic soap company my daughter works for has a tooth powder but I'm not a fan. So baking soda it is. And since its just me using it. I dip.
Regular toothpaste left my teeth covered in plaque, and seemed to promote its growth. I switched to mixing coconut oil and baking soda. I'm the only user, so I dip. Dentist is super impressed by the change!

I do not use coconut oil. It’s not really necessary. You can brush with straight baking soda. I did for years. However, I found that I liked about a 50/50 mix with bentonite clay with the addition of cinnamon, cloves, clove oil, tea tree oil, and peppermint oil.

claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
