Easy Home Made Toothpaste

Jo Zimny


If you are worried about whats in your toothpaste you can make your own and then you will know what's in it. I have to admit I found this a tad salty, but it surely cleaned my teeth well. I used coconut oil in mine, it tasted nice.

1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
sea salt (finely ground)
drop-peppermint, spearmint, sweet orange, coconut, or cinnamon bark essence oil
a few drops of filtered tap water
1/8 tsp
xylitol (ground up fine, this is optional, xylitol won't harm your teeth)


1I put the dry ingredients in my magic bullet to make sure it was finely ground. It worked perfect. Then I put it in a small dish and mixed the liquids.
2You should get a thick, smooth paste. It shouldn't be runny since it has to stay on your toothbrush.
3Dip the tooth brush in the paste and use it as you would use any toothpaste.
