Homemade Natural Toothpaste

Course Natural Bath and Body
Author Donielle


  • 2 tsp Dr. Bronners Castile Soap – liquid the baby mild or almond is recommended
  • 5 Tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1/2 Tbsp bentonite or kaolin clay or baking soda
  • 10-20 drops essential oil orange, mint, etc
  • 1/2 tsp stevia ground
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • tooth powder optional


  • Place 2 teaspoons of Dr. Bronners into a small bowl.
  • Add in the 5 tablespoons of melted coconut oil and stir to combine.
  • Add in the remaining ingredients and stir until combined. I used ground stevia plant (my toothpaste was green!) but you can also use stevia drops or extract, simply lower the amount used and go by taste.
  • If you have an herbal toothpowder, you can also add in a couple of teaspoons to this homemade toothpaste.
  • Mix it all together and then revel at the crazy concoction you’ve just made.
  • Pour it into a small container and let sit for a few hours so the coconut oil will solidify again.
  • To use, just spread a small amount onto your toothbrush.


Please be aware that if you spit it into your sink that you will need to run hot water so the coconut oil doesn't clog the drain. Some people prefer to spit into the trashcan.
You can also use xylitol in place of stevia!
