Easy and Inexpensive DIY Toothpaste | Real Food RN

After reading this article on what really is in our toothpaste and how harmful it is (even though we have been using Tom’s brand for years) I decided it was time to start making my own DIY toothpaste and tooth powder. I’ve had a few recipes stashed away for a while and had even purchased the ingredients. What was holding me back?! Well, I finally made some and we are totally thrilled with the results. Bonus: it also remineralizes your teeth.

You can find all of these ingredients at a co-op or Whole Foods. If you are having trouble finding the items, they can be ordered online. Click on on the links I have provided below.

DIY Toothpaste

Tooth powder:

Mix ingredients and put into a jar. We each have our own jar because we dip our toothbrushes into the powder. Wet your toothbrush and dip it into the tooth powder and brush away. It’s just that easy.

I also made a paste which was super easy to do….I added coconut oil to the tooth powder until I achieved the desired consistency….same recipe, same jar. My husband prefers paste to powder.

Everyone is happy, and our smiles show it!
