DIY Toothpaste: Great for You, Super for the Planet!

Simple is good.  Homemade is better.  Waste-free is supreme!

Now combine all three of those in one effective personal hygiene product and you’ve got a winner.

Enter DIY Toothpaste.

You’ve most likely got each of the ingredients and tools to whip this up in your kitchen.  Lord knows you’ve got a small glass jar with a lid hanging out in your pantry.

So let’s get to it!


3 Tbsp. organic coconut oil, at room temperature.  Do NOT melt the oil.

1 Tbsp. baking soda

0.5 Tbsp. high quality sea salt or Pink Himalayan salt

12 drops Peppermint essential oil

Combine all ingredients in a small glass jar with tight fitting lid.  Store at room temperature.  To use, place approx. 1/8 teaspoon of paste on wet toothbrush, then brush.

Feel those teeth and gums sparkle and rejoice with clean, natural freshness.  Feel even better knowing that you made it yourself and will not be adding any “lives on forever plastic” to the landfill once this batch is used up.

Your mouth and body thank you.  Your Earth Mother salutes you with a deep bow of gratitude.
