This homemade recipe included raw, organic and cold-pressed extra virgin coconut oil as the base. Coconut oil contains lauric acid, which has antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. It also included baking soda to clean and whiten teeth, and oil of oregano because it also has antibacterial and antifungal properties. It is also an anti-inflammatory.

To add flavor to the toothpaste, we included essential oils of peppermint, spearmint and cinnamon leaf. You can always leave out one, or add more of another until you find your favorite flavors.

We Also added xylitol, which is a sweetener made from fruits and vegetables, more commonly, corn. Since pretty much all corn is genetically modified, it’s best to use organic xylitol if you can find it. We’re using xylitol because it has shown to prevent tooth decay. (Remember to NEVER let dogs consume xylitol, as it can kill them

Homemade Toothpaste Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons Organic Non-Hydrogenated Coconut Oil
3 Tablespoons Aluminum-Free Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Xylitol (Organic, if possible)
5-10 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil (Organic, if possible)
5-10 Drops Spearmint Essential Oil (Organic, if possible)
5-10 Drops Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil (Organic, if possible)
4-6 Drops Oil of Oregano

Directions:

Heat the coconut oil by setting bottle in warm water until it melts, or by mixing it. Add the remaining ingredients, and mix thoroughly. You can always make it less sweet by lowering the amount of xylitol. Of course, you can change up the essential oils to fit your tastes.
