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.

Natural Homemade Toothpaste Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen


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


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 xanthan 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.

Pour or spoon the mixture into a 4 oz. glass jar with a lid and keep tightly closed when not in use. Keep stored in a cool, dry location.

    This looks really good! Do you know if you can use benzoin oil instead of powder? I can’t find anywhere in NZ that stocks the powder form. Thanks!

      I’ve never used the oil. You could certainly try it.

    Do you know of a recipe like this that is more kid friendly or what to maybe omit from recipe to make it more kid friendly. We are talking kids that don’t spit it out well yet.
