10 Easy Homemade Toothpaste Recipes

So, if you do not want to use the classic toothpastes, you can prepare your toothpaste in your home. These toothpastes are quite simple and fun to prepare, but they do not create foam as the classical toothpaste (because they do not contain sodium lauryl sulfate). Use a soft toothbrush so that you can massage the gums as well.

Usually you should use ingredients that have soothing and antibacterial effect in the oral cavity, such as baking soda (disinfectant), natural sea salt (rich in natural minerals, it cleans), stevia (against caries), mint and rosemary (refresh the breath, antibacterial effect), lemon (whitens and cleans the teeth, breath freshener), sage (antibacterial effect, whitens the teeth, gingival treatment) and so on.

Here are some recipes to prepare natural toothpaste in your home:

1. Recipe for all family members

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons of extra-virgin coconut oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of stevia extract (approximately 50 mg) for sweet taste (or ½ teaspoon of dried minced leaves of stevia)
  • 15-20 drops of peppermint essential oil (and / or cinnamon, orange …)

Preparation:

Melt or soften the coconut oil a little. If the oil is solid, you should use a fork, and if it is liquid, you should use a spoon. Add the other ingredients and stir well. If you use completely melted coconut oil, you will have to stir a few times while the mixture cools off in order to mix the soda well.

Put the mixture into a vial, you can buy an empty vial at the pharmacy and then put the cap with a narrow opening or you can use a small jar (you can use different jars for each family member).

2. Safe and cheap, ready in a moment

Ingredients:

  • Peppermint essential oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Mint leaves
  • Stevia

Preparation:

Until you learn the process, you should make a small amount of paste. In the ratio of half and half, mix coconut oil and baking soda (a tablespoon of each). Add a few drops of mint essential oil and a little Stevia that will give sweet taste to the paste.

Mix all the ingredients well and put them in a glass container. Just dip the toothbrush into the paste and brush your teeth. You do not need to keep your homemade toothpaste in the refrigerator.

3. Quick recipe with baking soda

Ingredients:

  • Baking soda
  • A drop of essential oil of sage or mint / lemon
  • Some water

Preparation:

Wet your toothbrush, sprinkle a little baking soda and put a drop of oil. Brush your teeth as you do it usually. This is the quickest recipe and you only need to buy your favorite essential oil. It is recommended to use sage oil, but it is useful to use different ones…

4. Toothpaste with mint

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons of baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons of mint leaves powder
  • 2-3 tablespoons of distilled water
  • 6 drops of essential mint oil

Preparation:

Mix the baking soda and the mint leaves powder, add the essential oil and distilled water and stir until you get a creamy mixture. Keep the paste in a dark container.

5. Toothpaste with green tea

Ingredients:

  • 100 g of green tea
  • A teaspoon of baking soda

Preparation:

Pour a cup of boiling water over 100 g of green tea, let it stand for 30 minutes, then strain the liquid, mix it with a teaspoon of baking soda, and brush your teeth with the mixture.

6. Toothpaste with white clay

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons of white clay
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 6 drops of essence of mint
  • 1 dl of still mineral water

Preparation:

Heat the mineral water, add the sea salt and the baking soda and stir until they are completely dissolved. When the liquid is cooled off, add the mint essential oil and mix well. After that, little by little, pour the clay and mix until you get a homogeneous mass. You should keep this toothpaste in an airtight crystal container.

EXTRA ADVICE

In case of gingivitis, or sores in the mouth, you should replace the mineral water with sage tea and use it while the inflammatory process lasts.

7. Toothpaste with green clay

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of green clay
  • 2 tablespoons of baking soda
  • Melted coconut oil, enough to prepare the pasta

Preparation:

First mix well the dry ingredients and add the oil to make a paste. You can also add a couple of drops of essential oil, but in this case, be sure to use the one with a high quality.

8. For every day

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of green clay
  • 1/2 teaspoon of neem powder
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • Essential Oils – cloves, cinnamon, tea tree, orange, lavender, geranium, mint, etc.
  • Water

Preparation:

First, mix the dry ingredients and add a little honey and a spoonful of water. Mix everything in a relatively thick paste because the essential oils will dilute it. You can use different essential oils to create a variety of flavors, but also health benefits. I always put cloves and cinnamon in my toothpaste because they are excellent for the health of your gums. Sometimes I use others as well. Very often, I use a mix of lavender and geranium because the breath smells of flowers. Instead of water, sometimes I use neroli floral water or the one of lavender.

You should keep this product in a closed glass bottle.

9. Toothpaste for adults

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil (Cocos nucifera)
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 drop of tea tree oil (Malaleuca alternifolia)
  • 1 drop of peppermint essential oil (Mentha spicata)

Preparation:

Mix everything and voila! You have beautiful, natural toothpaste, which kills bacteria, freshens and whitens the teeth! Everything is natural, nothing is aggressive and everything is understood.

The recipe for children’s toothpaste is similar, except that this paste is sweet 😉

10. Children’s toothpaste

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil (Cocos nucifera)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon of stevia powder
  • 1 drop of tea tree (Malaleuca alternifolia)
  • 1 drop of sweet orange (Citrus sinensis)

Preparation:

Mix everything and you will get yellowish and sweet, natural toothpaste for children, which also kills bacteria and protects the beautiful small teeth without the fear that something will happen if the kids “accidentally” swallow it (of course, do not tell them that).

Note: These toothpastes do not foam, but they are nice and they give you the sense of purity much more than the pastes you buy.

Toothbrush

But, why not to use commercial toothpaste? Here are facts that will change your mind:

6 Facts About Commercial Toothpastes

#1. In the commercial toothpastes, as well as in most of the industrial cosmetic products – bubble baths, shampoos and baby cosmetics, they add sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). SLS is one of the chemicals about which people have a lot of reactions. It is a detergent that is added in the toothpaste in order to make more foam. It pollutes the environment, it is ranked among the irritant poisons, it causes redness of the skin, and it is suspected that it is cancerous- during a long-term use it destroys the brain, heart, eyes and lungs and leads to hair loss.

It attaches to the tissue, so it cannot be easily removed from the mouth with water. It destroys the good bacteria in the oral cavity, but it does not harm the bad ones- streptococci and E. coli. It causes periodontitis- very painful inflammation of the gums, which can lead to tooth loss.

#2. The so-called antibacterial toothpastes are especially dangerous because they contain another well-known poison, formaldehyde.

#3. All industrial toothpastes contain fluorine which is promoted as a “sine qua non” ingredient for taking care of the teeth and oral cavity. In the world there is a movement that fights against the fluorination of the products, because according to some researchers, the fluorine is a poison that causes irreversible damage to the physical and mental health.

#4. In the pastes for teeth whitening they add the white powder aluminum dioxide, but there is a proven link between the aluminum and the Alzheimer’s disease. This powder is considered as a neutral component.

#5. For the problem to be even bigger, if it was not tragic it would be funny, most toothpastes contain toxic colors- there are even toothpastes with colored stripe that becomes pale after some time, when the color fades, it has expired! Are we so stupid that we cannot figure it out without toxic, colored lines?!

#6. Many toothpastes are too acidic or too alkaline, thus changing the normal acidity of the mouth and it seems that the teeth get caries more easily.

The situation is similar with the so-called “natural toothpastes” – most of them contain SLS, sugar that erodes the tooth enamel. In many natural cosmetic products, the SLS is considered as a natural ingredient, because it is derived from the coconut, but they deliberately fail to mention that the separation involves toxic chemicals- sodium hydroxide solution, and sulfur compounds.
