Make it yourself: Toothpaste

One of the reason I hated to brush my teeth as a kid was the taste. Synthetic mint that leaves your mouth almost burned and aseptic never felt good to me, and the huge toothbrush made me gag (I’m still using kid sized one, I have a little mouth!). I stumbled upon a recipe for homemade toothpaste on pinterest once and tried it that very night after. After making it several times and adjusting it to my taste, I have for you my somewhat “final” recipe. It’s VERY easy to make, you’ll see!

You need:

  • A tea spoon of baking soda
  • 2 tea spoon of coconut oil
  • 2-3 tea spoon of cinnamon, or cinnamon essential oil (add drops to your taste), or mint oil, whatever fits your taste.

You mix with a fork and it’s really do use!

It seems a little but for my 4 person family it last a week. You don’t need lot on your brush. You get used really fast to the texture and salty taste.

And your teeth feel clean afterwards, without the aggressive aftertaste of commercial products. You can add stevia powder for remineralization of the teeth.

Of course there are some people who don’t agree with making your own toothpaste, so please inform yourself to make an informed choice if you want to use it.

  1. I’ll definitely try this! We use Tom’s of Maine flouride free and it’s too expensive and really strong minty. I’d love to find a milder alternative.

  2. I have a toothpaste recipe but this looks like an interesting recipe I may give it a try because I can still add the mint taste I like. Another reason to give it a try I’m tired of always stocking up on toothpaste.

  3. I have to try this! All the kids ones available here have horrible ingredients and the alternatives are breaking the bank. . . Thanks for sharing this.

  4. Hey Andréann!

    Thanks for sharing this. Baking soda’s brilliant stuff isn’t it!

    I’ve been using it on my hair for a couple of years now and I’m thinking if I’ve stopped using commercial shampoo I might as well try moving away from commercial toothpaste too.

    I’ll be giving this a go when the final tube of regular paste has gone I reckon.

    Thanks again,
