How To Make Homemade Toothpaste

Making your own toothpaste is not only a fun DIY project, but it can also be a healthier alternative to the store-bought toothpaste. Here's a simple recipe to make your own toothpaste at home:


  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide
  • 10-15 drops of peppermint essential oil
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil


  1. In a small bowl, mix together the baking soda and hydrogen peroxide until it forms a paste.
  2. Add the peppermint essential oil and mix well.
  3. Melt the coconut oil in a microwave for 20-30 seconds, then add it to the mixture and stir until everything is well combined.
  4. Transfer the mixture to a small jar with a lid and store it in a cool, dry place.

Baking soda alone is a good natural alternative to toothpaste for those that love organic solutions. Baking soda is a natural and inexpensive way to whiten teeth and remove stains. It is a mild abrasive that can gently scrub away surface stains on teeth caused by coffee, tea, wine, and other foods. Baking soda also has antibacterial properties that can help reduce plaque and combat bad breath.

Using baking soda as a toothpaste is easy. Simply wet your toothbrush and dip it into a small amount of baking soda. Brush your teeth as you normally would, paying special attention to any areas with stains or discoloration. Be sure to rinse your mouth thoroughly with water after brushing.

To use the homemade toothpaste, just wet your toothbrush and scoop a small amount onto the bristles. Brush your teeth as usual, then rinse your mouth with water. This homemade toothpaste is gentle on your teeth and gums, and it leaves your mouth feeling fresh and clean. Give it a try and see how it works for you!
