Huh. Never heard of this before. What does the soap do, then, that brushing wiht a dry brush or with water wouldn't? What is the purpose of toothpaste anyway? Can you get off plaque with only the brush, or do you need an abrasive agent of some kind?
Scratching my head here. But willing to give it a try!
I'm making some soap tonight! After reading this thread I started researching natural dental care and checked out the toothsoap website. I couldn't find any soap without glycerin in it, so I decided to make some.
The recipe I'm using:
2T coconut oil
3T baking soda
10 Drops peppermint oil (I'm using 1/2 peppermint and 1/2 vanilla for less strenth)
a small dallop of honey
To this recipe I'm also adding 4 crushed up calcium carbonate pills, a total of 2,000 mg. I looked around and a lot of recipes had that in them so I'm borrowing that and hoping it helps.
I'm also making some mouthwash!
1/4C rum or vodka
1/2C distilled water
1/4t ground cinnamon
1/2t ground cloves
I'll let everyone know how they turn out!
