Bentonite Clay Toothpaste-My Daring Experiment!

I guess I really must miss homeschooling because I recently conducted an experiment....
just like the ol' homeschool days!
I tried the BulkHerb recipe for Bentonite Clay Toothpaste--and I love it!

Bentonite Clay Toothpaste Recipe
3 Cups Water
1 Tablespoon Stevia Herb
1 1/2 Cups Cinnamon Sticks
4 Tablespoons Whole Cloves
4 Tablespoons Baking Soda
1 Tablespoons Celtic Sea Salt
1 - 1 1/2 Cups Bentonite Clay Powder

1. Mix the first four ingredients in a medium saucepan, and boil 30 minutes. While that’s heating, mix 4 tablespoons baking soda and 1 tablespoon Celtic Sea Salt and set aside.

2. Next place 1 cup of Bentonite Clay into a glass bowl. Note: it is important to use a glass bowl and wooden spoon because when the Bentonite Clay gets wet, it sets up an electromagnetic reaction which will absorb the particles inside of a metal bowl, or the toxins out of a plastic one.

3. Remove saucepan from heat and strain off herbs, catching the liquid in a glass bowl. Slowly add the salt and baking soda mixture. Expect it to foam and bubble. This is the cinnamon and the baking soda reacting to each other. While it is still frothing, pour the liquid mixture into the bowl of Bentonite Clay, and whisk briskly. The foam will start to settle down and a smooth paste should start to form. Continue adding the remains of Bentonite Clay until the desired consistency is reached. Store in glass jars and avoid any contact with absorbable metals.

I was a little leary because it looks different than regular paste...but everyone in my family likes it!
It has a very smooth texture to it.
I also love how each ingredient has a purpose and it is explained in the instructions. :)

I bought the kit from them-it came with instructions too, but they are also available on their site.
The link is above, and if you want to check out their site or order--

Let me know if you try it!
