Easy Homemade Toothpaste


I tried a variety of homemade toothpastes including a basic baking soda and peroxide combination. I didn’t have a lot of success with any of them. Then I discovered the use of clay in homemade toothpaste. The kids and I have been satisfied with the texture of this clay recipe which we have been using for the past two months. We all enjoy the flavor and feel that our mouths are clean when we are finished. It can get messy and kids usually need an extra lesson in how to thoroughly rinse the sink when they are finished rinsing their mouth out. No harmful chemicals or harsh abrasives are used in this recipe.


A lot of mineral toothpaste recipes you will find claim that they re-mineralize your tooth enamel and cure cavities. As I mentioned, I have been using this recipe for the last two months or more and I have visited the dentist during that time. I do have an overall healthier feel to my teeth and mouth (and confirmation from my dentist that things are in good shape) but I have yet to see any cavities be cured. However, I have not gained any new cavities. I’m satisfied with my current mouth routine and will update this post should anything change for better or worse. Please continue to visit your dentist for regular check-ups. They still have cleaning tools and procedures that can help your mouth stay in the best possible shape. You are always free to decline anything you aren’t comfortable with (Such as fluoride).

  1. Melt coconut oil if you need to and add the castile soap and trace minerals.
  2. Combine xylitol and clay then mix into liquid ingredients.
  3. Add water and stir well until a paste is formed.

  2. Rub all over your teeth, then go back and scrub teeth.
  3. Rinse mouth and toothbrush well.
  4. Once a week, scrub teeth with baking soda to help reduce plaque build up and whiten.
