Make it Yourself Monday: Toothpaste

The first time I tried to make toothpaste I swear I almost threw up. If you haven’t heard it before; baking soda is salty.

This time went a whole lot better and now I’m hoping to stick with it.



1/4 cup Coconut Oil

1/3 cup Baking Soda

20-30 drops Peppermint Oil

1/2-1 teaspoon Sugar or Sweetner (Optional)


  1. Combine all ingredients
  2. Add more baking soda or oil depending on desired thickness
  3. Add more sugar or peppermint as needed for taste
  4. Enjoy!

This is a great recipe because the coconut oil combined with the baking soda provides great anti-bacterial properties. Feel free to switch up the oils if needed or add anything that works better for you.

As always, I hope everyone has a good week and let me know what I should try to make next!
