  • What do you use for toothpaste?

    I have been using equal parts coconut oil and baking soda with a hint of mint for a while but wish to try something without coconut oil. At room temp its great but when it gets too hot it melts and when its too cold its too hard!

    Its frustrating to use this toothpaste in Michigan... If you have a constant temp in your home then its PERFECT!

    What do you use?
    Find me at Cheers!

          And this is why folks they we're crazy…

          I don't eat enough toothpaste myself to worry about its paleo-ness.

            I use baking soda and hydrogen peroxide mixed together as a paste. Kills germs, and your teeth feel like you have just been to the dentist; they are squeaky clean.

              Peppermint Hemp pure castile soap.. and a little baking soda

              Not because it's paleo - but because I've read that the glycerin in toothpaste sticks to your chompers and prevents enamel from forming.

                Tom's of Maine (without fluoride), it's not as minty as I'd like, but after a while you get used to it.

                When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.

                When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy". They told me I didnít understand the assignment.

                I told them they didnít understand life.

                  Flouride used in toothpaste is medical grade (as opposed to industrial refined flouride in water treatment), there is no reason to avoid it. I use Arm & Hammer toothpaste or Aquafresh

                      I use whatever brand I got free with coupons.

                      I tried the coconut oil & baking soda the other night and didn't like it, mouth full o' salty coconut, bleh!

                          Strangely enough, I tend to use toothpaste for toothpaste. Colgate Advanced White if we're going to be specific here. =]

                            baking soda, xylitol, and sometimes i open a few capsules of calcium into the mixture. it has made a big difference with my sensitive teeth (i've been doing this for much longer than i've been primal)! for those of you who don't like the taste, suck it up! my kids eat this stuff. if a 4 and 7 yo can handle it, i'm sure you can too!

                            btw, that miessence looks great! i've never seen a commercial toothpaste that doesn't contain glycerin.

                              I mix coconut oil, olive oil, dr. bronner's soap, baking soda and essential oils for flavor (peppermint and orange). It works great. I thought of adding minerals too, but didn't have them already and felt cheap so, I didn't. It would be a good idea though.

                              ETA: Wow, that miessence really does look like good stuff. I would actually buy that, which is a first.
