Homemade Toothpaste

Homemade Toothpaste

After reading this article on what really is in our toothpaste and how harmful it is (even though we have been using Tom’s brand for years) I decided it was time to start making my own homemade toothpaste and tooth powder. I’ve had a few recipes stashed away for a while and had even purchased the ingredients. What was holding me back?! Well, I finally made some and we are totally thrilled with the results. Bonus: it also remineralizes your teeth.

If you live near a co-op or Whole Foods, you can find all of these ingredients at those stores. If you are having trouble finding the items, they can be ordered online if you click on the links I have provided below.

Tooth powder:

Mix ingredients and put into a jar. We each have our own jar because we dip our toothbrushes into the powder. To give the toothpaste a minty flavor we use Orawellness brushing blend drops, which is an essential oil blend that is specially formulated for tooth and gum health. Wet your toothbrush, add a few drops of the oil blend to the brush, dip in the tooth powder and brush away. It’s just that easy.

I also made a paste which was super easy to do….I added coconut oil to the tooth powder until I achieved the desired consistency….same recipe, same jar. My husband prefers paste to powder.

Everyone is happy, and our smiles show it :)

    Lady, you inspire me. Thank you for this website and all of the information. I’ve been singing your praises to some friends who were wishing they could find a homeopathic MD. (We only have a homeopathic pediatrician around these parts.) While you’re not a doctor (as your disclaimer states) you are extremely helpful. Again, thank you.
