All Natural Homemade Toothpaste Recipe

DIY All Natural Homemade Toothpaste Recipe

I’ve been wanting to make an all natural homemade toothpaste recipe for quite some time but kept putting it off. This past weekend I changed that and now I’m kicking myself for not doing it sooner. Not only did it help with sensitivity – I typically use Sensodyne ProNamel Gentle Whitening Toothpaste – but it also visibly started to whiten my teeth after just a few uses. Including those horrid coffee and tea stains that mark my caffeine addiction.

So if you’ve been debating whipping up your own natural homemade toothpaste recipe, stop just thinking about and take action. You’ll be glad you did.

All Natural Homemade Toothpaste Recipe that helps to whiten teeth naturally!

Ingredients:

2 oz. aluminum free baking soda
.5 oz. bentonite clay
.5 oz. fine sea salt
1.3 oz. 76° melt point refined coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon benzoin powder
1 teaspoon xanthum gum powder (or guar gum powder)
50 drops peppermint or clove essential oil

Instructions:

Begin by weighing out the baking soda, clay and sea salt using digital scale and combine in a glass bowl or small Pyrex measuring cup. Using measuring spoons, measure out and add the benzoin powder and the xanthum gum powder. Mix well with a fork.

Now weigh out the coconut oil in a separate container. Melt if needed. (In summer this typically stays between a solid and liquid while in winter it’s often rock hard.) Add the essential oil. (If you don’t have a dropper on your bottle you can measure out the drops using a glass dropper or a plastic transfer pipette.) I used clove oil in mine since it’s renowned to help with tooth aches.

Now slowly add the powder to the coconut oil mixing with a fork as you go until it forms a paste. Once the coconut oil has cooled if you find the paste is too hard during colder months, you can increase the amount of coconut oil to up to 1.5 oz. as needed.
