Beware, this is not for those with braces! To make great toothpaste that is powerfully antiseptic yet hydrating and cheap, follow this:
1 half cup coconut oil
1 Tablespoon of baking soda
1 Teaspoon of sea salt
10 Drops of Peppermint oil
1 Tablespoon Xylitol (optional ingredient)

Do not add water or dip a wet toothbrush into the paste because this will make the coconut oil go bad! You should store the paste in a mason or similar jar. It would be a good idea to make two batches, one with baking soda and one without. The one with baking soda should only be used thrice a week because of how abrasive soda is. Although if you use 1 Tbsp or less you should have no problem using it every day, but you should really use the xylitol if you drop the soda ratio. You can add more xylitol if the flavor is too salty for you, but you will only need a max of 1 tbsp for cleaning. If you live in a hot climate you can add bentonite clay to thicken the mix, but the amount will vary by temp. The ingredients are expensive to buy all at once, but they make many batches that last a long time and are much cheaper in the long run than bought paste. For very high sugar or acid diets you may need to add more baking soda, but no more than double. The baking soda is very bad for dental gear like braces, so don't say I didn't warn you.
