A few weeks ago we ran out of toothpaste. I have tons of baking soda around so I put that on my toothbrush with a couple of drops of spearmint essential oil. It made my whole mouth feel great. So that's what I've been using since with excellent results. Sometimes I switch the essential oil for a different "flavor". Anyway, any reason why I should continue? I mean, it's definitely the most natural toothpaste I can think of and it works. And I know they say that what is more important than the toothpaste is the actual brushing. Any ideas?
