If you ever look at ingredients that are in commercial toothpastes, you will find that there are ingredients you can’t pronounce or that are unfamiliar. Some of the ingredients, like glycerin, actually coat your teeth and prevent your teeth from naturally remineralizing. Wouldn’t you like to control what is in your toothpaste?

If you would rather have a paste than a powder, you can always add coconut oil and distilled water until you get the consistency you like.
Note: Bentonite clay, activated charcoal, and stevia powder can all be found online or at a local health food store.
