Healthy homemade toothpaste

It was driving me crazy that every “organic” and enzymatic dog toothpaste I found had added hidden dangers. Because I brush her teeth daily, Jersey eats a LOT of toothpaste! I finally decided just to make my own so I’ve been doing a lot of homework and collecting ingredients. Tomorrow I’ll be making my first batch and including my first working recipe!!

UPDATE

I’m still playing with different ingredients so I’m holding off on posting a final recipe but so far we’re trying a mix with:

1/4 c organic coconut oil

A pinch (or 1/4 tsp) organic Turmeric

” organic kelp

” baking soda

” organic parsley

> 1/4 tsp organic cinnamon

I haven’t added mint leaves but they can help freshen

I also haven’t had to add flavor but I’ve seen a lot of recipes with added chicken or beef bouillon or this human Grade flavoring additive:
