What does Beauty mean to you? Part 1

What does beauty mean to you? Beauty to me means the perfection of patterns in nature. It means appreciating what is right in front of us.

I have made several variations of this toothpaste, but I continue to go back to the Bentonite after trying a couple of other options.
