Homemade Toothpaste : 3 Simple Ingredients

I am in a constant quest to make and use all-natural and organic products at home and one recent discovery and experiment was HOMEMADE TOOTHPASTE using only 3 ingredients. Now you may ask? What is wrong with our commercial toothpaste? Well based on my readings, a lot of them use ingredients that may often do more harm than good such as saacharin and SLS (Sodium Laurel Sulfate). And therefore, I took it upon myself to find a safer alternative. I found an interesting recipe  and decided to try it out. I researched  and rummaged through numerous on recipes  online (mostly wellness blogs) and eventually came out with my own! My sister Addis is a dentist and I consulted her on this. Her main thought was that I will still need the flouride to protect the teeth and so I've decided to first try to alternate the regular toothpaste and this homemade one but in the long run transition into just using this one. I will update you once I get my teeth checked again. So here it is...

You will need these 3 things which probably are already in your kitchen : 

Cold-pressed Virgin Coconut Oil

 Peppermint Essential Oil (I swear by Young Living, you can message me if you'd like to order!)

 Baking Soda

Now you ready to make your paste.  You simply have to mix equal parts of coconut oil and baking soda then add in  a few drops of peppermint essential oil to taste. And tada! Toothpaste! It may seem a little weird and salty when you first try it but after a while you'll get used to it! I alternate it now with our regular toothpaste to make sure I still get some flouride for added protection against cavities. 


This toothpaste is a great follow up to oil pulling (read my separate post on that). Both oil pulling and a natural toothpaste like this one, in addition to flossing, can keep your teeth clean and healthy. With a proper diet that supports the necessary minerals for re-mineralization of teeth, I believe teeth can be healthier and yes whiter. From what I understand, yellow teeth can be the result of reduced/demineralized enamel that allows the dentin beneath to show through. By strengthening that enamel through re-mineralization, teeth are not only healthier and free of cavities but also naturally whiter. (SOURCE :  http://www.keeperofthehome.org/)
