3-Ingredient Homemade Toothpaste

DPC

My store-bought toothpaste contains a cocktail of ingredients I don’t understand let alone pronounce. So I decided to test out a 3-ingredient homemade toothpaste with all natural ingredients.

I decided to make my homemade toothpaste using all-natural ingredients:

The base formula is one part coconut oil and one part baking soda. Both coconut oil and baking soda promote whiter teeth and healthier gums. My recipe called for:

6 tbsp coconut oil
6 tbsp baking soda

For flavoring you can add a few drops of essential oil. I went with peppermint which has a refreshing taste. You cane also make your toothpaste a little sweeter by adding Stevia.

This is really as simple as adding the ingredients to a mason jar and stirring until you reach the texture and consistency you like. I use a little spoon to scoop out the paste and apply to my brush.
