How To Make Your Own Natural ToothpasteImage –

We continue on our quest to find natural, healthy alternatives to commercial products and their various “can I trust this?” style ingredients.

First things first: Our latest discovery – a natural toothpaste formula – is a straight-up money saver! The kind folks over at have calculated the costs for you, and figured out that the cost will be approximately $1 for the same amount of product as a $5 tube of one of the better toothpaste brands.

The formula is astonishingly simple, and includes baking soda, sea salt (optional), peppermint essential oil and a little filtered water.

That’s it!

I can already pre-empt the most common question that people are going to ask: Isn’t baking soda too abrasive to use on your teeth? The surprising answer is provided by DIYNAtural, who state that (I didn’t know about this!) there is a thing called the Relative Dentin Abrasivity scale. Astonishingly, baking soda is listed as being considerably less abrasive than any of the commercial brands of toothpaste.

Looking into it a little further (I don’t like to just rely on one source of information!) I found that several other sources make the same claim. I uncovered the chart (presumably originating from the American Dental Assoc., seeing as it is their research) that shows the Relative Dentin Abrasivity of various toothpastes and there it is! Plain Baking Soda is the least abrasive of all. [1]

Where it gets really interesting is when you consider the correlation between abrasiveness and “whitening power”. Obviously, the more abrasive, the more it will remove stains. However, the “dark side” of this is that a more abrasive toothpaste may remove more than just stains – and in the drive for increased whiteness, the envelope may well have been pushed too far.

Note also that the abrasiveness will be greatly affected by how hard you brush!

One last tip: Be sure to use pure baking soda and not baking powder (which contains baking soda but also may contain other ingredients).

Ok, here is the link to the full recipe for making your own natural toothpaste:

    I was using Tom’s toothpaste but they backfill the tubes and you are paying for half air…I made them refund me when I found that out plus theirs contains glycerin which prevents the absorption of minerals we need for our teeth. Home made is best. I also like tea tree oil toothpaste as it helps heal gums too.

    Natural toothpaste is the best! I did baking soda and peroxide this morning and my teeth and gums feel so clean. Did not enjoy the taste but will do something about that on my next batch.

    Please can you add metric measurements to all your recipes. 2/3 of a cup is pretty vague to most of the world outside North America! Even using ounces and pounds is not all that helpful as this is only used in UK and not even much there now.

    Google it, takes about 5 seconds.

    Is the peppermint eo necessary?

  • By lbird, October 20, 2013 @ 3:00 am

    maybe you can use stevia for a sweetener in the toothpaste. I would like to try it.

  • By Victoria, November 10, 2013 @ 5:31 am

    I use baking soda, peppermint & coconut oil.

  • By Victoria, November 10, 2013 @ 5:32 am

    No need to measure. One drop of peppermint oil, 1/4cup or so of baking soda. And enough coconut oil to make a paste.

    Thank you for posting this with sources. I have read so many posts about making your own toothpaste this way (and I do make mine like this) and all the dental hygienists in the world suddenly appear and berate the poster because baking soda “is too abrasive, it will ruin your teeth!”. Sorry, but my grandparents and great grandparents were using baking soda long before all these ‘new-fangled’ tooth pastes came about. Even when it was available, as a budget saver, they STILL used baking soda (sometimes with peroxide added).

    I would also suggest getting aluminum free Baking soda!
