Homemade Toothpaste...

Easy toothpaste, from kitchen ingredients. I've dressed it up some, but you can use what you have on hand and certainly keep it more frugal!
2 T coconut oil
3 T baking soda
1/4 t (or to taste) peppermint extract or essential oil
Opt*1 to 2 drops tea tree oil (taste is a factor with this)
2 pks of stevia, xylitol, or other non-sugar sweetener
1t glycerin *opt (for texture)
Blend well.
Store in baby food jar or other lidded container.

Neat, do you kids like it ok?
Great alternative to store bought paste and pretty cheap too!

Some do, some don't.
It does make your mouth feel LOTS cleaner though ;-)
