Essential oils work in homemade toothpaste for both flavors as well as oral health. Because they're even more effective and powerful when combined, I like to add lots of different ones like rosemary, thyme, tea tree, and myrrh for a synergistic effect. Since these essential oils have such a strong flavor, it's best to use them in smaller quantities and focus the majority of your essential oils on ones that are more palatable.
Also, 1/2 cup of stevia may be too sweet for you, feel free to add a little as you go and see how much works best for you. I find it's not too sweet since the baking soda is a little salty and the bentonite has no taste.
