I have read many of the treads on this website about conventional toothpaste and homemade substitutes. I'm looking to avoid SLS, fluoride, and carrageenan, but the stores where I live have absolutely no products without those ingredients! I have been looking into making my own toothpaste. I don't know how I will react to sodium bicarbonate because my teeth are SUPER sensitive! I heard bentonite clay mixed with coconut oil or xylitol in a great alternative...but I'm allergic to coconut AND xylitol. Is there any way to modify the recipe to use something else?? Or is plain clay okay to brush with?
I know some people have written that they completely forgo toothpaste, but I don't quite feel comfortable doing that.
Thank you for your help!

I've been using this:
NaHCO3 baking soda
KCl potassium chloride
Ca Cl2.2H20 calcium chloride dehydrate
You could just leave the Xylitol out. I put a small spoonful in my palm with a few drops of Hydrogen Peroxide and brush. It is also great as a sinus rinse. Dr Grossnan formula.
