Homemade Toothpaste Using Coconut Oil

I have become such a big fan of Coconut Oil, and when I found this Toothpaste Recipe on What Red   Said... Blog,  http://whatsupwithred.blogspot.com/2011/02/look-ma-no-cavitiesagain.html
I knew I had to try it.  She also makes a Homemade Deoderant that I have got to try.

Marnie, tells you better how to make this toothpaste, but here is the basic recipe.

Homemade Toothpaste

3 Tablespoons Orgainc Coconut Oil ( I use Tropical Traditions)
4 Tablespoons Baking Soda
20-25 Drops Peppermint Oil
3-6 Packs Stevia  ( I use NuNaturals)
Mix all the ingredients together and store in a container with a lid. That is it. If you don't have peppermint oil, don't worry. The toothpaste will still work without it.

This toothpaste makes my teeth feel so clean.  Thank you so much Marnie!!

Another thing!!  Coconut oil has caprylic acid which helps fight fungus.  After you use this toothpaste to fight the fungus, you might want to use a good Probiotic to help keep the fungus away.  

Please Check With your Dr before doing anything you see on this blog.

  2. I've been using Marnie's recipe for this toothpaste for about two months and I don't think I'll go back to the old kind. I used Orange flavoring instead of peppermint and I really like it!

  4. I'm also a huge fan of coconut oil. The tooth paste recipe sounds great. Thanks for posting. My guru returned from vacation and it isn't my son (lol) I really pay this guy. He figured out how to put the follow on my Whole Radish but for some reason we'd do it after April. I'm posting on the A-Z Challenge every day and that is keeping me forever busy now.
    Love and peace,

  7. Hi Girls,
    Thanks for your comments. I have been using this toothpaste for awhile now.

    When I went on vacation, I didn't take it with me and I really missed it.

    Hi
    Just made my first trial batch of coconut oil, peppermint oil drops and bicarb had a go and very impressed I still have to work out how I'm going to store it we are in summer now Queensland Australia but in winter mid July it may go hard does this happen when the oil is mixed with bicarb?

  11. Hi Anonymous,
    When I made it, it never turned hard and if it does, just add more coconut oil.

  12. I used to use Tropical Traditions, too, but now use Nutiva which has a much nicer scent and flavor. I can actually eat the Nutiva oil straight - something I could not endure with Tropical Traditions. And, I can get Nutiva oil on Amazon for a great price. Just thought I'd share.

  13. i'm in australia also and the coconut oil shouldn't go too hard even in winter. if it's too soupy, it can be refrigerated or kept in a cool place. if hard, leave in a warmer place.

    Hi, thanks for this recipe, I'm about to go try it now! Does it havevto be refrigerated? :)

  15. If your house is on the cool side, you won't have to refrigerate it. If it is warm, you will be using melted toothpaste.

    Sure you can leave out the stevia. It just makes it a little sweeter for your taste buds.
