Baking soda and water. You can add food grade EO to them as well. It works with baking soda and peroxide as well.

Baking soda. You can also add sea salt, a couple drops of peppermint oil, and I just recently added some comfrey powder.
But all you really need is baking soda.

I know you can make your own. I use Jason's for the kids.

I've used baking soda before, and I like it. I've read some online references to "oil pulling" ... basically a type of swishing with a select oil, such as sunflower - that is on my to-try list. I think the oil option is a supplement to brushing in another form, but I am still in reading mode, so not sure.

Dunno which ingredients you object to. I order Squigle. Expensive stuff, but I'm not a make-your-own kind of person.

I use baking soda. The kids use fluoride free baby toothpaste even though the older one is 3. She still hasn't mastered spitting first. I've considered oil pulling, but then the morning sickness started and that seemed like a bad time to try it out.

Earthpaste. You can get the best deal on vitacost.com. Or Poofy Organics. I think the website is poofscloset.com.
