I love all the recipes and may give some of them a try! I have made some small changes to a recipe I found from Wellness Mama
She does it in parts and I think that is great, but I usually just do it in tablespoons and it is a rough estimate. I do leave out the optional DE just because it was a bit too abrasive on my gums, I think I probably brush too hard.... The recipe has some distinct similarities to some posted here. I do like that it is simple as that works for me.
Like the previous person noted, the coconut oil alone can leave it a bit too stiff to spread in winter. To fix this, during the colder months I add a tiny bit of vegetable glycerine or a liquid oil. I tried olive oil and was not super fond of the taste, sweet almond oil did work well for me. I was also planning on trying walnut at some point.
5T Calcium Carbonate
4T melted coconut oil
2T Baking soda
1/2tsp finely ground sea salt
Essential oil mix (I like peppermint and use between 20-40 drops for this amount.)
(If it is cold, use about 3T coconut oil and 1T liquid vegetable/nut/seed oil of choice. This may take more liquid oil in a colder environment than the 6b I am accustomed to.)
I do feel I have much better oral health since going away from commercial brands. Thank you for sharing everyone and good luck in your quest for the perfect oral care!
