So awhile back I posted about making my own toothpaste & the recipe I decided on was 50% xylitol, 50% baking soda, add water to desired consistency (and we also mix in a little cinnamon or peppermint oil for flavor). We've been using it for a couple months now & DH and I just came back from the dentist with GREAT results. My gums didn't bleed at all & DH's only did slightly, no cavities (DH is very prone to cavities), and it took way less time to remove tartar buildup... so all in all, a great success! Just figured I'd share in case anyone else was interested in making their own paste.
