Get that petroleum outta your mouth! PEG is NOT your friend! Neither is propylene glycol, glycerin, colouring, detergents or any of those unreadable chemical ingredients that appear on the labels of commercial toothpaste and mouthwashes if they appear on the label at all.

Aside from the harmful ingredients and punishing price tag, the products come in hormone-disrupting, non-refillable plastic, toxifying you, then our planet a further 575+ years after use!

Come and learn to make your own customized dental care toothpaste and toothpowder - charcoal optional! - and DIY with Tracey TieF, Certified Natural Health Practitioner. You'll learn about tooth and gum loving, water-based, safe, tasty and healing ingredients, and make your own custom toothpaste or toothpowder in a reusable glass jar!

Ingredients we'll use:
Sodium bicarbonate USP #1 aka baking soda!
Mayan sea salt fairly traded from Guatemala - a 6,000-year-old sustainable industry!

Optional ingredients:
Vegetable glycerine (to make a paste)
Coconut oil (to make a paste)
Activated charcoal powder
Essential oils of peppermint, spearmint, wintergreen, anise, basil, orange, lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, mandarin, clove bud
