Scratch Toothpaste

I have been trying to figure out a scratch toothpaste that is more than just baking soda and doesn’t contain ingredients I need to order. After trying a few recipes and making up a few I decided on this one.

If you don’t want to take the time to mix up your own and don’t want to buy a tube either you can brush your teeth with these single ingredients and have good luck too.
*Baking Soda   *Coconut Oil   *A few drops of Peppermint Essential Oil and water   *Peroxide (this can cause problems with fillings and tooth enamel, I have seen it recommended before but I would skip this one personally.)

  • 1 1/2 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 10 drops Peppermint Essential Oil or Cinnamon Essential Oil
  1. Melt the coconut oil.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients.
  3. Mix thoroughly and place in a small jar.
  4. Just scoop out a little on your toothbrush and use.
Recipe Notes

*Baking soda is quite abrasive so there is no need to brush hard. I would also be careful when using an electric toothbrush; from what I've heard they can be quite abrasive by them self.
