Good morning and happy first day of spring! Finally, no more snow, no more freezing nights, and no more tooth powder! Yep, now that it is warming up it is time to transition from tooth powder to toothpaste. I would use the paste in winter as well if I could, but it gets a little too cold in our bathroom and the homemade toothpaste gets way too hard to squeeze out of the tube! But, warmer weather is right around the bend, so lets get this started!

A few things to note:

  1. This recipe contains activated charcoal. If you aren’t familiar with activated charcoal, it pulls toxins and heavy metals from the body. Because of this, you cannot use metal utensils when preparing this! if the charcoal comes into contact with metal it will absorb some of the heavy metal and therefore be much less effective in your body. stick to bamboo, glass, or even food grade silicone. this ingredient helps to whiten your teeth!
  2. essential oils – the quality of essential oils varies dramatically. I would not use 99% of the essentials oils sold today anywhere near or in my body. I will be making a post on that topic soon! anyway, the brand I recommend using in this recipe and likely all recipes, would be the young living brand. They are the only essential oil company that is willing to give tours anytime of their fields AND their facilities. 

Here is the recipe for the remineralizing toothpaste:

½ c. Calcium Bentonite Clay (food Grade) (Calcium, NOT SODIUM)

4 tbsp. calcium carbonate powder

4 Tbsp. Activated Charcoal

3-6 drops Clove Essential Oil

15 drops trace minerals 

10 drops peppermint or spearmint

¾ c. filtered or distilled water

6 Tbsp. Coconut oil

1 tbsp. almond oil

Mix together the dry ingredients. Once mixed add in essential oils and trace minerals- mix again. Mix in half the coconut oil, the almond oil and half of the water. Mix again. If at this point it has not formed a paste like consistency, slowly add more water and coconut oil about 1 tbsp. at a time until the desired consistency is reached. Once you have a paste, transfer the paste into a reusable silicone squeeze tube like these. 

in our house we use this paste and follow with either oil pulling with coconut oil for 10 minutes or remineralizing mouth wash

If you pair this tooth paste with a healthy diet of whole foods, ditching refined sugar and carbonated beverages you should notice huge improvements! I am not a dentist or doctor so I can’t officially give advice I can only tell you what I do and how I have dealt with tooth decay. This recipe is step 1 to remineralize teeth. I really hope this helps you! 

Let me know if you try this out, do your teeth look whiter? do they feel stronger?  let me know in the comments!

  1. Love this recipe! I added spear mint EO to mine and grapeseed oil to make it squeeze easier. Thanks for sharing!
