Those of you that read that group blog I use to write for, know that I make my own toothpaste.
But I was thinking the other day (besides the fact that I have way too much time on my hands in the winter) what happens if I can't get glycerin?
I know, strawberries, but might not have those in the winter either. And if I am ever forced to survive in the wilderness I know how to make a tooth paste out of bark or sassafras.
So I decided to see what I an do without glycerin, just to pass the time and torture my taste-buds a bit.
I saw a recipe that has you using clay powder. Well I don't have clay on hand, that one won't work. Maybe a little charred eggplant and sea salt. . . nope I have neither of those one hand.
And I have done the peroxide thing, and must say I don't care for the after taste one bit.
2tbsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vodka
2 drops each: Oregano oil, wintergreen, peppermint
Now this is a toothpaste I could learn to love.
I can distill my own "vodka" so that wouldn't be a problem. I grow the mentioned herbs, and I have a bunch of baking soda.
Do you have your own recipe for toothpaste?
