    I haven’t tried makingn my own toothpaste, although I did try using baking soda and salt once. That ended up a bit of a disaster! I might give this a go but I’m not sure where I could get some of the ingredients.

    That is great that you are shunning the expensive chemicals that are not beneficial to good health. I have never tried to make toothpaste, it’s good that you have tried, you may have to tweak the recipe a bit.

    I have made homemade toothpaste with bentonite clay and baking soda, but have never heard of using diatomacous earth. I have also tried the activated charcoal a couple of times, and it does leave your toothbrush all black!

    a very inspiring DIY! I think I’ll stick with my nice white toothpaste for sensitive teeth, but it’s good to know that the make-it-yourself ones work well too ~ Leanne visiting from #AnythingGoes Link Party.

      lol….It is only black because of the charcoal. If I leave that out it would be a light gray. Thanks for stopping by Leanne!

    I so admire people who try to DIY home products. Not only does it save money but you also know what is in it. Thanks Mary, for sharing the idea with us at #AnythingGoes. See you next week! PS Hope your daughter is feeling better.

    I love the idea of making your own toothpaste, but I don’t think I’m brave enough! LOL Over the past year I have been making our own cleaning supplies and most everything that we eat from scratch. It is nice knowing what all of the ingredients are!

      It definitely is reassuring to know exactly what is going in my body. I must say, I don’t make my own cleaning supplies and I don’t plan to. Thanks for stopping by Emily!

    I was just talking to my husband about making toothpaste last night! I’m curious about where you found your ingredients, though…Thank you for the inspiration!

      Online mostly…..tea tree oil on ebay and cinnamon extract from Swanson’s and I think the rest was from Bulk Apothecary. Just make sure the powders you get are Food Grade. Thanks for stopping by Alex! Let me know what you end up with :)
