Homemade Coconut Mint Toothpaste
Homemade coconut mint toothpaste is an easy natural toothpaste recipe! Learn how to make your own toothpaste with this simple tutorial.
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 2-4 tablespoons baking soda
- 1 tablespoon xylitol
- 15-20 drops peppermint essential oil
Place the coconut oil in a small saucepan over very low heat and let it gently melt.
Remove the pan from the heat and add the rest of the ingredients. Stir well to combine.
Store the homemade toothpaste in a small glass jar with a lid.
Allow to cool completely.
To use, you can either dip your toothbrush directly into the jar or use a spoon.
Notes: I just dip my toothbrush in this (make each family member their own small jar). If you prefer, you could also keep a popsicle stick or a small measuring spoon near the jar and use this to scoop it out.
You can substitute cinnamon for the peppermint essential oil. optional: you can also add Bentonite Clay and Black Walnut hull powder.
