When my homemade toothpaste from this recipe ran out...I decided to try another. I have read a bit about the benefits of bentonite clay to remineralize teeth, and also have read a bit about how baking soda may be too harsh on the enamel, so thought I would give Keeper of the Home's recipe for bentonite clay toothpaste a try.
As always, I made a few adjustments to Keeper of the Home's recipe:
- 1/4 cup Bentonite Clay ( I purchased mine from Mountain Rose Herbs)
- 3/8 cup boiling water
- 1/4 tsp. Sea Salt (or any unrefined sea salt that you enjoy)
- 1 tsp Xylitol
- 10-12 drops Peppermint essential oil
