    Where do I buy glycerin? I found a recipe for homemade toothpaste that I want to try.

    Health food store. Or online from a soap making supply site.

    Or you can try a local pharmacy. I'm not sure about Wal-mart (ugh!) but that may be a possibility. I usually get mine from a soaper's supply.

    I've bought it near the tea tree oil and such at wal-mart.

    Let me know how it goes. I'm not supposed to use any soap or toothpaste with SLS in it, but it's hard to do. My fiance asks me to make him stuff, but I haven't ventured out beyond soaps, bath salts, etc.

    Buy vegetable glycerine at a health food store. It will smell and taste better.
    If it doesn't say vegetable glycerine, the it is made from petroleum products and will taste & smell like it. eech
