Homemade toothpaste

No, it's not guacamole!  It's actually grey, not green!   


6 T Bentonite Clay
6 T Baking Soda
2T Xylitol
1 T Fennel Powder
75 +/- drops of Fennel* Essential Oil
3 smidges of White Stevia Powder
2 T unscented liquid Castille soap
Nutiva Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil to make paste consistency.
I fully expected to tweak it with more sweetener and flavor, but hubby deemed it good the way it was.  So, we have a nice supply of toothpaste that will last a while! 
 I've since read about using activated charcoal in toothpaste and will add that to the next batch.  Bentonite clay was what we happened to have in abundance, I might try another type next time.  Also, adding powdered horsetail would be good, but I didn't have any.  

 *You can flavor it any way you like....we've used peppermint and fennel....
