Making your own homemade peppermint toothpaste couldn’t be easier! It’s as simple as mixing 8 ingredients together and storing it in a jar. This homemade peppermint toothpaste adds trace minerals to help re-mineralize your teeth and does NOT contain any fluoride.
How to Make Homemade Peppermint Toothpaste
Gather all ingredients and let them sit until they are room temperature. Get a glass or ceramic bowl and mix all 8 ingredients together, pour into a glass jar for storage and use everyday. To help your teeth stay white, make a whitening mouth rinse of water and hydrogen peroxide. Combine an equal part of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide and Water in a glass, swish around in your mouth for 1 minute then spit out; simple.
- 1 Tablespoon Baking Soda
- 2 1/2 Tablespoons Calcium & Magnesium Powder
- 1 Tablespoon Bentonite Clay Powder
- 15 drops of Trace Minerals
- 1 Tablespoon Diatomaceous Earth
- 2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil
- 3 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
- 15 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
MIX ALL INGREDIENTS IN A GLASS OR CERAMIC BOWL WITH A WOODEN SPOON. (The Bentonite clay will absorb any metal or plastic). Feel free to try other essential oils, other than peppermint. Cinnamon is another great option to try!
Why I Make My Own Homemade Peppermint Toothpaste
Two years ago, I started making my own toothpaste. I was inspired by the idea that we could re-mineralize our teeth and heal them from decay. My husband has very bad teeth, mostly from genetics, and my daughter’s teeth looks like she is taking after my husband. I knew none of them would want to try my hippie toothpaste right away and so I decided to do an experiment on myself with my homemade peppermint toothpaste. Hopefully, I could then convince them to use it too.
I have now used this toothpaste for two years. The salty taste was something to get used to in the beginning, but overall I am very happy with how clean my teeth look and feel. I have VERY good teeth and so I haven’t noticed any re-mineralization (which I expected since it didn’t need it in the first place), but I don’t have any new decay either (great for homemade toothpaste)! I have tried to get my daughter and husband to try my toothpaste so I can help them with natural ways to repair their teeth, but both think it is too salty and won’t use it.
Does anyone else have family members that are weary about your homesteading & homemaking skills or recipes or ventures? I would LOVE to hear about it!
