Homemade Toothpaste


  • 5 parts calcium carbonate or calcium/magnesium powder
  • 5 parts coconut oil
  • 2 parts baking soda
  • I only use the first three ingredients but you can also add...
  • optional -- 3 parts Xylitol powder
  • optional -- peppermint extract


  1. use a teaspoon or tablespoon for your "parts"
  2. mix everything together (I use a small mason jar)
  3. you may have to warm it up in the microwave for just a second to let the coconut oil get into a more easily mixable state with the powdery stuff
  4. after it cools it won't be like normal squeezable toothpaste
  5. I take a spoon and get about 1/2 tsp into my mouth, let it melt, then move it all around my teeth before I brush
  6. enjoy
