Marvelous Mommy Monday–Homemade Toothpaste!

Monday, October 10th, 2011

I missed Fabulous Family Friday, so I thought I’d post it today!



We were busy getting ready for some dear friends to visit for a week–they came from Connecticut Saturday and we are SO enjoying them! :)



I really wanted to get back to my FFF posts and even had a great idea, but it took Jessica helping me and we just couldn’t connect Friday due to everything else we were trying to do–including Isaiah’s birthday, which was also Friday!   (Is my “baby” really five years old?! )


I thought it would be fun to do a video post!  I’ll post the recipe I use below so you can copy and paste it if you want, but sometimes seeing a how-to in a video is even more helpful than in pictures.







Here is the homemade toothpaste recipe (not original with me–I just tweaked what I found on the internet):


4 TB baking soda

1/2-1 tsp. celtic sea salt or himalayan salt, ground fine (you can do this in a coffee grinder, mini-chopper or blender)

Note: I use about 1/2 tsp. celtic sea salt in the double batch–you can leave this out but it does add minerals!

2 TB coconut oil (can use olive oil or sweet almond oil, or you can even leave it out and just have a tooth powder)

Water (optional–if your mixture is too dry, add a little, a few drops at a time)

15 drops total essential oils  (approximately–as you saw in the video, this isn’t exact!)



Here is what I used, but of course use what suits your family best!


~8-12 drops peppermint

~6-10 orange

~1-3 cassia


Mix together and store in container(s) of your choice.  To use, wet toothbrush and dip in to get a small amount on the brush.  Use a bit more water to help it reach all tooth surfaces, rinse well.


Note:  I doubled the above amount in the video.


Here is a picture of the containers we use, purchased at Wal-Mart, they come in packs of two in the travel toiletries section of the Health and Beauty area.





Here is Dr. Ray Behm’s site, and right on the homepage you’ll see “The Secret” that I shared about in the video.

Please share in the comments if you have tried making this and what essential oils you used.



Also please let me know if you liked the video “post” and would enjoy more in the future!



Keep that smile bright and healthy! :D
