Struggling to find a store brought toothpaste that helps clean your teeth and give you a healthy smile?
This all natural homemade toothpaste recipe is easy to make and helps clean your teeth naturally. Now you can finally know what you are putting in your mouth and cleaning your teeth with.
Shelf Life: 6 months-1 year
Benefits: Baking soda increases the alkalinity in your mouth, which can help to reduce the acidity caused by certain foods. It also has a low abrasive score, so it helps to polish your teeth without damaging the enamel.
Tips and Tricks: To help remineralize your teeth, add 10 drops of trace minerals to this recipe.
Because the solidity of oil changes with the temperature, your toothpaste may separate in warm weather when your toothpaste liquefies. If this happens, just give it a stir, or store in the fridge to keep it solid.
Variations: Cinnamon, spearmint, myrrh, and clove are also great essential oil options and can be used in place of the peppermint.
How to Use: You can use this just as you would a regular toothpaste.
Level of Difficulty: Easy

Tools & Supplies
- Measuring cup and spoon
- Sanitized glass jar
- Coffee grinder (optional)
If using xylitol, grind the powder until very fine in a coffee grinder (this helps it to dissolve easier).
Pour into a bowl and mix in remaining ingredients. If coconut oil is solid, you can use a fork to mash everything together.
Scoop into a jar for use.
NOTE: The xylitol/stevia is mainly there to add flavor and sweetness. If the taste of the tooth- paste doesn’t bother you, feel free to omit it.
