How to Make Homemade Toothpaste

While it may sound like a complicated process, learning how to make your own natural homemade toothpaste couldn’t be easier. Chances are, you already have some of the ingredients rattling around your kitchen; and if you don’t, they’re easy to find and inexpensive.

Here’s the recipe:

2 Tbs. baking soda

2 Tbs. organic coconut oil

1/2 tsp. organic raw honey

3 – 5 drops essential oil such as spearmint, peppermint, cinnamon or clove

Just a dash of sea salt or Kosher salt

Dump all these ingredients into a bowl and smash it all with a fork, mushing the coconut oil into the mixture until it looks just like – well, just like toothpaste. Scrape all the well-mixed paste into a glass container with a tight fitting lid and use just as you would your regular, expensive, and not-so-natural paste.

That’s it! You’ve just learned how to make a natural and homemade toothpaste at a fraction of the cost of store bought brands and is safe enough for even the youngest teeth in the family.

  7. Hi flmom! It’s not absolutely necessary to add the essential oils, but it is helpful. It’s a mouth freshener as well an antibacterial boost. But I’ve used baking soda on its own for years as a teeth cleaner, and that’s a great mouth freshener too. Just not so tasty!

    So glad to hear you tried it and liked it, Lisa! We’ve been enjoying this one ourselves. My son is so proud of the fact that he helped make our toothpaste.
