I quit using toothpaste containing fluoride about 9 years ago but just continued buying expensive herbal fluoride-free toothpaste for the following years. I was just too lazy to have a go at making my own. About six months ago I finally tried, and its dead simple, takes very little time and works out far less expensive than the health store stuff.

Bicarbonate of soda is also antiseptic and can be used to stop bleeding gums.
You know exactly what ingredients are in your toothpaste.
